F1, Nascar, and Offshore Powerboat Racing are all very exciting, but none of them even come close to matching the skyhigh daredevil action that takes place at the legendary Red Bull Air Race World Championship. “Why?” you asked? Because it involves participants navigating a challenging obstacle course at death-defying high speeds in a plane – that’s why!
The international series of air races was created by Red Bull and established in 2013. Thankfully, it has only seen one non-fatal crash throughout its history. Since the 2011, 2012, and 2013 series of races were cancelled for the restructuring of safety measures, the 2014 Red Bull Air Race World Championship which will be held in Putrajaya, Malaysia, is truly one to watch out for!
Stay tuned for updates!
