I was during a Red Bull Air Race with Benoît Tréluyer. This foe is totally crazy! Aerobatics with branch loops over a Danube: this is pristine acrobatics. we was even authorised to see what it’s like in such a cockpit. Similar to a cab rides in motorsport, there are also cab flights during a Red Bull Air Races. It’s implausible what a pilots do. And a centrifugal army are even aloft than they are in a racecar.
