Button takes to the streets of Manchester for demo run 30 Aug 2011

Fresh from his podium finish in Belgium at the weekend, McLaren’s Jenson
Button journeyed to Manchester on Monday to give locals a thrilling taste of
Formula One power. The demonstration run was part of a three-day event
organised by the team’s title sponsor Vodafone.
Despite damp conditions, thousands of spectators turned out to line
Deansgate, one of the UK city’s busiest thoroughfares, to watch the Briton in action. And after the bustle of Deansgate, the temporary track turned
down John Dalton Street and into Albert Square, where a kart track, an F1
simulator and an exhibition of race suits and helmets were based for visitors
to enjoy.
“(It’s been a) great day in Manchester,” said Button on his official
Twitter site. “I still can’t believe how many people came to watch! Amazing crowd!! Hope you all enjoyed the show.”
As well as putting an F1 car through its paces, Button also found time to sign
autographs, answer questions from the crowd and meet up with England
cricketer Michael Vaughan, boxer Amir Khan and gymnastics champion Beth
Tweddle. He even gave one lucky enthusiast a ride in the British team’s
new MP4-12C road car. Button will be back in action in more typical surroundings next week at the
Italian event, which takes places at Monza from September 9-11.
