Racing Point to return to the track with 2020 machinery next week

Racing Point to return to the track with 2020 machinery next week

Racing Point has confirmed to GPFans the Formula 1 team will complete a 'filming day' at Silverstone on June 17, running the RP20.

Racing Point will become the first F1 team to run its current car since the close of pre-season testing in February.

While Mercedes elected to run its 2018 W09 car at Silverstone on Tuesday and Wednesday, Racing Point will complete the second of two permitted 'filming days' in the RP20, the first of which was used ahead of pre-season testing in Barcelona.

In running current machinery, Racing Point will be subject to the strict regulations surrounding 'filming days', namely that no more than 100km can be completed, and that special Pirelli 'demonstration-spec' tyres can be used.

Taking to the shorter 'National Circuit' at Silverstone, Lance Stroll will be behind the wheel for the duration.

Racing Point surprised many people in pre-season testing with both the speed and controversial design of the car, with the RP20 completely different from the launch version and bearing a striking resemblance to the 2019 Mercedes W10, leading to it being dubbed 'the pink Mercedes'.
