Red Bull gives chance to run Silverstone with Flying Laps

Red Bull is challenging the UK to participate in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to run, push or cycle on the Silverstone Circuit this July.

Launching the Flying Laps challenge this May, participants need to complete a 5.9k activity of their choice (the length of the Silverstone track) then log their lap on Strava or the Red Bull website to gain access onto the world famous track on 20th July.

Max Verstappen currently holds the lap record at Silverstone, completing 5.9k on 2nd August 2020 in a staggering 1:27.097, setting his own Flying Lap and securing him in Silverstone history. The gauntlet is now thrown down to challenge the UK to set their own personal 5.9k best, securing their own Flying Lap record and pushing their own boundaries along the way.

The Flying Laps challenge is open until 23rd June. Participants can log their 5.9k activity either on the Flying Laps 2024 Strava challenge of via the Red Bull Flying Laps landing page.

Inspired by functional drinks from East Asia, Dietrich Mateschitz founded the company in the mid-1980s. He developed not only a new product but also a unique marketing concept and launched Red Bull Energy Drink in Austria on April 1, 1987. A completely new product category was born – energy drinks. The Energy Drink is available in 175 countries worldwide and over 11.5 billion cans were consumed last year. A 250 ml can of the Energy Drink contains 80 mg of caffeine, about the same as in a home brewed cup of coffee. For more information, visit
