Showdown in Spielberg: Red Bull Air Race finals

The Red Bull Air Race in Spielberg last weekend close to the home of X-BIONIC® athlete Hannes Arch was a real thriller. The Formula 1 race track was sold out and lots of fans came to see the final race of the World Championship. Hannes Arch showed a great performance during the qualifying and was the top candidate for the title.

Because of his his good qualifying flight Hannes started from the last position in the final four round and the title was closer than ever before. But during his final lap he made a small mistake and earned a two second penalty from the jury. With this additional time Hannes lost his chance for a victory in Spielberg and also the fight for the title. This was a real disappointing result for him, but he is already looking forward to the next season:

“I am really disappointed. It was a very close final with a big chance for me. I was quite fast and knew how to fly the course, but in my last turn I could not serve a good result. The huge crowd of fans help me and give me a good feeling. We are already motivated for the next year. But my second rank in the World Championship is a good result for me. At least I could leave my biggest rival Paul Bonhomme behind me and this is also a worthy result.”

Race Day in Ascot

Another great weekend full of Red Bull Air Race action at the historic Ascot Racecourse is over and X-BIONIC® athlete Hannes Arch showed a great performance last weekend. Although Hannes didn’t finish at the podium, he is still leading the Red Bull Air Race World Championship series. He mentioned in an interview after the race:

“I am not happy with the result of the race weekend and the cushion got smaller in the championship, but this is motivating me for the next races and I focus on the future now.”

The next round of the Red Bull Air Race will be on the 6th of September in Dallas – we wish Hannes all the best for the race!

Hannes Arch

X-BIONIC® athlete Hannes Arch won the 4th race of the Red Bull Air Race World Championship last weekend in Gdynia. It was a brilliant flight of the Austrian pilot at the challenging course in Poland and his 3rd victory in a row. With this fantastic  race result he widened his championship lead up to 13 points and is preparing for the next race in Ascot (UK). After the race he mentioned:

“I prefer to be the hunter than the hunted, being the hunter suits my style better. But I guess I’m going to have to get used to being the one that everyone else is hunting now.”
