Red Bull Air Race at Arrábida Bridge

THE BEST VIEW IS GUARANTEED!

Just one week away from the return of the Red Bull Air Race to Porto, the official programme of the event, which includes other reasons of interest besides the races, and the final racetrack of the event, were disclosed.

Ten years after its debut, the banks of the Douro river – between the cities of Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia – welcomes again the best pilots in aviation sports, with the sixth stage of the Red Bull Air Race World Championship.

Since the last stage held in this setting, in 2009, much has changed. There are names that are certainly still part of the memory of the Portuguese fans, as is the case of the current leader of the Championship – the North-american Kirby Chambliss, who was second in the 2008 edition. However, for half of the pilots who visit us, this time the racetrack is an absolute novelty, a fact that reflects well the natural renewal of this sport.

Designed between the bridges of Arrábida and Luís I, the track is delimited by four double airgates and three individual pylons that form the central chicane and that is flown in both ways, twice. The track’s record, belongs to the British pilot Paul Bonhomme, already retired from the competition, who at the controls of a Zivko Edge 540 was the fastest in 2009, with  a time of 1:09.17.

For those who want to follow the action closely, we have a DIFFERENT IDEA!
