MANCHESTER: McLaren driver Jenson Button is all set to conduct a demo in which he will drive his Formula One car in Manchester later this month. The run by the 2009 world champion will take place on bank holiday Monday, August 29, the day after the Belgian Grand Prix with the Englishman due to drive down Deansgate, before turning down John Dalton Street and into Albert Square. “Driving a Formula One car through Manchester is going to be a unique experience for me,” said Button. “There’s a chance for the public to win some great prizes so I hope Manchester is going to be out in force and are looking forward to the bank holiday as much as I am.”
