Never ones to shy away from a battle with the Best of British, what better way to prepare for the British Grand Prix than with an on-track shootout against some of Britain’s most iconic forms of transport.

For this Best of British battle, there was no holding back when it came to bringing out some iconic members of British transport history – and you can’t get much more iconic than the Supermarine Spitfire. One of the greatest fighter planes ever built and a jewel of aerodynamic and engineering vision and skill, the Spitfire was always going to be top of the list.

With the Spitfire confirmed, the only thing remaining was to think of some other transport icons, vehicles that embody British culture and the thrill of the open road. How about…. a Double-decker night bus, London black cab, a car packed full of summer festival-goers, and that notorious symbol on the British roads, the white van.

In true Red Bull spirit we fired up the double F1 championship-winning RB7 to take on the big beasts of British transport in a fight to the finish line ahead of this weekend’s race.
