Just 60 days separates us from the inaugural Red Bull Air Race held here in Cannes. For the first time in history, the Red Bull Air Race pilots will be carving the blue skies of the French Riviera, as they dive from the heavens and weave between the racing air gates that line the circuit.
The ultimate airborne motorsport series is not shy of taking place in the most exotic, beautiful areas of the world, with destinations such as Abu Dhabi, Japan, Russia and Budapest on the World Championship calendar. Often pilots must fight the elements in such different types of flying conditions, such as extreme heat, strong winds and heavy storms. Therefore no two races are the same and anything can happen. In Cannes, pilots will be content with optimal flying conditions, with maybe a hint of sea breeze keeping things interesting.
On average, the race tracks are 6km in length and have inflatable pylons which show the pilots the way. The tracks consist of a start/finish gate, numerous pylons and a chicane the pilots must navigate in expert fashion, to give themselves the best chances of being crowned champion of the skies.
There will be 5 French pilots looking to make their country proud, as three fly in the Masters series and two fly in the Challenger series. With it being their first opportunity to fly in their native skies, it will be a race for them to remember as they fly in front of an excited crowd. It will no doubt be a great event for the whole family to enjoy, as thousands of fans flock to the coastline to watch the sports’ superstars battle it out for glory!
