Kirby Chambliss Grabs His First Points.

A focus on the North Americans.

Austria’s Hannes Arch won in Gdynia as 130,000 fans came out for the first-ever Red Bull Air Race held in Poland. The Austrian in his Edge 540 was quicker than Britain’s Nigel Lamb (second) while Matt Hall of Australia was third, both flying the MXS-R planes. Kirby Chambliss was fourth getting his first points of the season, replacing Canadian Pete McLeod who is usually in the Final Four. Pete was penalized for “Over G’ and while his comments were typical Pete McLeod cool after the race, he was a little more emotional about it in the cockpit as you’ll see in the video. Mike Goulian has yet to score any points but was happy with his performance as he continues to improve.
