Red Bull Air Race Perth

Red Bull Air Race Returns to Perth

The final stage of the Red Bull Air Race only in Perth for two days.

Adrenaline packed. Death defying stunts. Hold your breath because the Red Bull Air Race is about to return to Perth from Saturday November 1, 2008 to Sunday November 2, 2008. The aerial displays will include a variety of fly-overs and aerobatic displays with qualifying rounds held in Perth on November 1 and the showdown to be held the following day.



Flying low over the swan river, the Air Race will have picturesque views of Perth City, the South Perth Foreshore, Kings Park, and the Narrows Bridge. I caught the Air Race last year from the Perth Exhibition and Convention Centre, looking out from floor to ceiling glass block windows - it was spectacular.

Are you a Perth Red Bull Air Race junkie? Tell us what you like about it. I remember when I was at the PCEC, the VIP buffet was as spectacular as the show itself. Between that, the free beers, and looking after the children, the Air Race made for a fantastic backdrop. But it's not like I really got into it. Or perhaps you need to be outdoors and close to the screaming of those engines as they whiz overhead?

The Thrill of the Perth Air Race belongs to the Pilot

I've also never really been into spectator sports. I spent much of my youth practicing, then representing my country, and finally coaching Archery - a very solitary sport. The transition into martial arts was no different. People get excited about competitions or sparring or demonstrations, but it's not a show is it? The focus needed for martial arts is very much an internal one. I assume the biggest thrill at this Red Bull Air Race in Perth belongs to the pilots as they fly just 50 metres over the water, weaving around some pylons or flags. The excitement is not just some reckless feckless daredevil stunt, it is about the control the pilot needs to exert over his own natural instincts while mastering and controlling many complex calculations, and then attempting to out-perform his competitors. That's perfect from this martial artist's point of view.
