Planes dart under iconic Chain Bridge in Budapest – Red Bull Air Race

July 14, 2016 Sports No Comments Email Email

As the Red Bull Air Race World Championship returns to Budapest, Hungary for the ninth time, the only thing more fascinating than watching the raceplanes dart under the Chain Bridge will be witnessing which pilot has the edge to win.

Taking place on the 16-17 July, the fourth stop of 2016 marks the critical midpoint of the season, yet none of the 14 world-leading pilots has managed to exert true dominance over the field.

No pilot will be more keen to restore the “natural” order of things more than Austria’s Hannes Arch. The 2008 World Champion is the most decorated contender in the line-up and has finished on the overall podium the last five seasons, but he has had to claw his way up the standings after incurring a devastating penalty in the 2016 opener.

After claiming second place in the 2015 season, Matt Hall is hoping to fly his way into some much-needed points to increase his chances of another podium finish.
