Pilots took to the skies around Las Vegas to compete in the Red Bull Air Race World Championships on Sunday. The world’s fastest motor sport series put the best race pilots on the planet to the ultimate test in a competition combining speed, precision and skill. The pilots flew lightweight racing planes through a low-level aerial track at speeds of up to 230 miles per hour. Sadly high winds forced an early finish, exceeding 34 miles per hour, leaving several of the pilots unable to complete their runs. Saturday’s qualifying times were then used as the final results – the fastest qualifier was Canadian Pete McLeod with British pilot Nigel Lamb awarded second place, and German Matthias Dolderer finishing in third. Report by Claire Lomas.
