Australian Formula 1 driver Daniel Ricciardo is heading home to Western Australia later this year, but the F1 ace won’t simply be putting his feet up over the European winter.

Ricciardo has been confirmed as one of the star attractions at the Perth Speed Fest, and he’s bringing a Red Bull RB7 World Championship-winning F1 car with him.

The Red Bull, with Ricciardo at the wheel, will line up against a selection of drag cars in what organisers have dubbed “the ultimate test of speed”.

“There’s nothing in Australia quite like it,” Perth Speed Fest Event Producer, Emma Stenhouse, said.

“To see our local hero Daniel Ricciardo in an F1 car racing in Perth, as well as racing and demonstrations of motorcross, rallying, bikes, drags, and V8s alongside a huge showcase of historic, classic and majestic cars will be exciting.”

Ms Stenhouse said parts of the Speed Fest were modelled on the highly-successful Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Other attendees include V8 Supercar driver Will Davison, MotoGP rider Jack Miller, 1980 World Driver’s Champion Alan Jones, along with V8 pit reporter Riana Crehan - who is also a Perth local.

Besides Ricciardo and the Red Bull racer, fans can expect to see a motor show for historic vehicles, the Speed Fest Pit, dirt driving events and a family-friendly area with music, games and more.

The 2015 Perth Speed Fest is scheduled to take place on Sunday December 13 at the Perth Motorplex, Kwinana Beach.
