Red Bull Air Race World Series 2008

The Red Bull Air Race World Series features the world’s best pilots in a motor sports competition based on speed, precision and skill.

Using the fastest, most agile and lightweight racing planes, pilots navigate a low-level aerial race track made up of air-filled pylons, reaching speeds of 400 kilometres per hour while withstanding forces of up to 10 Gs.

Touching down in ten cities worldwide in 2008, each Red Bull Air Race is unique. From the heart of the city to the open countryside, over land or water, a Red Bull Air Race can take place almost anywhere. Spectacular backdrops and jaw-dropping action guarantee that spectators experience one of the most innovative and exciting new sports competitions around today.

I love the stuff you post, but nicking an entire series of pictures without crediting the source is likely to make me stop watching. Saw all of these over at boston.com before they were posted here.

I wonder how much G force those pilots get when they do those tight turns. Do those plane have an extra room for a passenger? Wonder if they do some tour or something.lol
