It's 'go, go, go!' for Red Bull F1 at Poplars


It was all “go go go” at Poplars Garden Centre as a Red Bull F1 racing car took up pole position in their Plantarea.  At first they thought their Plant team has misinterpreted the term ‘F1 hybrid’!


Each year, Poplars are the starting point for the MK Classic Car Rally, where all participants park up their wonderful cars and gather in the Restaurant@Poplars for breakfast at 7.30am before heading off on their 95 mile tour, which includes a visit to Millbrook Testing Ground & Holdenby House & Gardens, before finishing up at Silverstone.  This annual car rally raises vital funds for the Milton Keynes Hospital’s Neonatal Unit.


And in conjunction with the car rally, Poplars were lucky enough to have the F1 car for the whole day, kindly loaned to them by Red Bull Racing, who are based in Milton Keynes. The car was a huge hit and there was a continuous stream of F1 enthusiasts through the Garden Centre doors, all eager to get that fantastic photo opportunity.


Garden Centre Manager Alastair Jackson was delighted at the response having the car there created and even asked the Red Bull representative who delivered the car how he felt about leaving it so they could plant it up!
