2016 Las Vegas Red Bull Air Race Goulian Recap

What an emotional Red Bull Air Race weekend in Las Vegas. It was SO amazing to have flown and broken the track record (48.293 seconds). In fact, it was the fastest time ever flown in the three years we have raced in Vegas. However, due to the high wind, the committee had to cancel the race with two pilots left to fly, so my time was awesome but there wasn’t a result for the race. Read the entire post for Michael’s complete recap and view the images from Vegas.

2016 German Red Bull Air Race Goulian Recap

The track at Euro Speedway in Germany was one of the most aggressive we’ve seen yet this year. The goal, as in Ascot was to fly as fast or faster in the race as we did in training. Mission accomplished!! During the Round of 14 flight against Matthias, I flew my fastest time all week and one of the three fastest times of the day. Our team has been “on point” these last two races and I’m feeling relaxed and confident in the race plane. Not a bad place to be for Team 99. We can’t wait to come home to the USA and rock it in Indy!!
