...And Red Bull Series Comes To San Fran
Meanwhile, Aero GP's predecessor, the Red Bull racing series, will hold events throughout Europe this year before ending the season in its only North American stop Oct. 8 in San Francisco. The precise location of the race hasn't been listed on the Web site but it should be available, along with a course map, in the near future. The Red Bull series is working its way through six European dates before the final race in San Francisco and, if ticket sales are any indication of popularity, then the public seems to have an appetite for this kind of thing. Tickets are sold out for the July 24 race at the Rock of Cashel in Ireland. The Red Bull format requires pilots to race through a series of gates and perform mandatory aerobatic maneuvers between each set of gates. And it all takes place in an area measuring only 1,400 meters by 400 meters.
