Break Will Allow Reorganization, Technological Advancements In
The racing series which has been touted as being very positive
for sport aviation has announced a one-year hiatus while they
reorganize and look at safety improvements to the aircraft.
Red Bull Air Race GmbH confirmed that for the future success and
development of the sport, the World Championship will take a
one-year break in 2011.
The organization says it will use this opportunity to fast
track the technological advancements currently in the making which
would further improve the already high levels of safety.
In a statement on their website, Red Bull Air Racing said there
is a need to revise the main organization and commercial areas to
realize the full potential of the sport including the development
and reinforcement of strong host city partnerships which would
secure a long term race calendar.
The organization will fly the final race of the 2010 series in
Lausitz, Germany August 7th and 8th. Great Britain's Paul Bonhomme
leads the series with 53 points, followed by Austria's Hannes Arch
and Great Britain's Nigel Lamb. American Kirby Chambliss, who has
made several appearances at AirVenture in Oshkosh, is in 4th place
in the overall standings.
