Red Bull Air Race

Back in Budapest, just in time for the Red Bull Air Race. The temperature is in the mid 30's and is expected to stay there for the next few days.
The City Council organized watering stations to be set up on both sides of the river, so the over 200 000 spectators do have access to free water to drink and splash in. After a late lunch and some cold drinks with members of my family, we took our place in the crowd to watch the race.
I have taken some reasonable photos of various stationary objects but I have no idea how this photo will look like, but it is the best I can do.  You can also watch official videos on the Red Bull Air Race Youtube Channel.  Here are some highlights!



The three main characters in the race are, the home favorite and oldest competitor Peter Besenyei with his new plane, Matt Hall the young Australian with the fastest time so far and of course the eventual winner Hannes Arch from Austria.
An enjoyable spectacle for a couple of hours. The competitors will race again in England in three weeks' time to continue their battle for the title. I will be back in Australia before then, probably drinking hot tea to keep warm.

  1. We flew home to book this venue in June last year. Absolutely loved it here and I'll be certainly waiting to go back there for more events. Regardless of the time of your event, you always get the same thing at convention center: reasonable drink prices, great decoration, & friendly staff.
