Challenging weather conditions

07/17/2016

Challenging conditions this weekend disrupted the race in the fourth stop of the Red Bull Air Race Championship in Budapest. Constant rain and low clouds forced the race committee to cancel the qualifications on Saturday. The traditional start line under the Chain Bridge did not take place as the river water level was too high.

Conditions were quite poor on Race Day Sunday, but the race finally took place. After making it to the second round, Matt Hall was faster than Hamilton’s ambassador Nicolas Ivanoff in the round of 8. Nicolas finished 7th, taking the 5th place in the overall ranking.

Next stop: the queen’s race field in Ascot, United Kingdom.
