The once-in-a-lifetime 'seat swap' will take place on Tuesday 31st October, at Valencia in Spain, just two days after this weekend's MotoGP season finale at the same circuit. The crossover event had originally been planned for August 11, 2005, but was cancelled after Hopkins broke his foot in last year's German Grand Prix.
But, barring such misfortune in this weekend's grand prix, Hopkins will now get the opportunity to sit behind the wheel of the V10 powered Toro Rosso F1 car, sporting a Rizla-blue fire suit and an Arai car helmet painted in his Red Bull colours.
"I'm really excited about this," said the Anglo-American, "it's the first time I've been given the chance to drive a F1 car properly and the team are telling me to give it a bit of throttle - which makes me excited but a bit nervous too! I think it will be a really interesting day, with Liuzzi on the bike and me in the car, and our respective crews having to work with different guys using their machines. It's going to be an experience of a lifetime and I'm really grateful to Red Bull and Rizla Suzuki for making it happen. I'm really pumped up for it and can't wait for it to happen!"
