In an awesome cross-promotion stunt, Panasonic Toyota Racing joined forces with Warner Brothers to bring The Dark Knight to Silverstone for the British Grand Prix weekend.

That's right, the iconic Batmobile and Bat-Pod (the new Batman motorbike) will be making a cameo at the race. In fact, the Batmobile will even have a demonstration run alongside the Toyota Formula 1, TF108, on Thursday, July 10.

In addition, The Dark Knight artwork will feature on the TF108s and the overalls of Jarno Trulli and Timo Glock, as well as the team's motor home.

The Dark Knight opens in British cinemas on 25th of July.
