There ain’t any entry charges I suppose, are there?

    I saw this in San Francisco – the planes would begin their time trials by flying in from under the Golden Gate Bridge. Pretty cool.
    The pilots are all part of a touring circuit – I don’t think anyone can enter.

    If you mean entry fees just to watch, if its anything like SF’s setup, theres a VIP viewing section/deck with food and such that may charge entry, but it largely for sponsors and media. Besies that, Red Bull will likely have a free festival area with interactive exhibits…

    The Red Bull Air Race which was scheduled to take place on Friday in Abu Dhabi was postponed until Saturday due to strong, treacherous winds. The race took place on Saturday 18th March at 1645.

    American Kirby Chambliss succeeded in beating 10 other world class pilots to win the first competition of the season with a total time of 3:33.37. Thousands of spectators lined the famous ‘Corniche’ stretch in Abu Dhabi to witness plane and pilot perform a range of difficult manoeuvres as they raced through a unique obstacle course in the sky.

    Fellow American Mike Mangold, last year’s Red Bull Air Race World Series champion, came second place, followed by Hungary’s Peter Besenyei.
