The proposal was put together in three stages including a 3D animation styled to mirror the team's aspirations for an authentic vintage experience complete with steam to boot. This was then submitted to Redbull for approval.
The project was approved and ended a success. Well until the final run of the day when they nose dived off the big kicker at the bottom of the course; From hero to zero…miles an hour in the puff of a pipe. Terribly unfortunate old chap!
