Red Bull Air Race 2014 Putrajaya Malaysia

Which is the fastest motor sport in the world? You would think it is Formula 1 but there is much faster and powerful one : Red Bull Air Race World Championship. Every season,  world's best race pilots meet in a pure motor-sport competition. It is low level flying and requires speed, precision and skill. With their light weight advanced airplanes, pilots navigate a low-level aerial track made up of air-filled pylons.

Now here are the good news and very good news. The Red Bull Air Race is back in 2014. This year, 12 high skilled pilots including with defending World Champion Paul Bonhomme will race for the top prize. And here is the very good news: One of the legs of Red Bull Air Race 2014 World Championship will be in Malaysia on 17-18 May 2014.

Malaysia will be the 3rd race in the championship, which has given a 3 years break before resuming in 2014. The season started in Abu Dhabi of United Arab Emirates on 28th February and the second race was in beautiful seaside city of Rovinj in Croatia.

Built in the early 1990s, Putrajaya is located 25 km south of Kuala Lumpur. The city is the world's first 'plan driven' city based on two concepts – the garden and the intelligent city. A mixture of rainforest and Government ministries, Putrajaya is a haven for sustainable human development from within this growing nation.

Reigning champion Paul Bonhomme of Britain, who won the last two world championships in 2009 and 2010, will be looking for an unprecedented third straight title in 2014. But he will be up against 2008 champion Hannes Arch of Austria and American Kirby Chambliss, who won the world title in 2004 and 2006. The other pilots in the field include Nigel Lamb (GBR), Matt Hall (AUS), Peter Besenyei (HUN), Nicolas Ivanoff (FRA), Michael Goulian (USA), Matthias Dolderer (GER), Yoshi Muroya (JPN), Pete McLeod (CAN) and Martin Sonka (CZE).
