Red Bull Air Race in Chiba: Matthias Dolderer misses Final 4

German Red Bull Air Race pilot Matthias Dolderer suffered a small setback in the battle for the title at the third World Championship event in Chiba, Japan in front of 70,000 spectators on the whole weekend. Australian Matt Hall was victorious in Chiba, followed by Goulian and Czech Martin Šonka, and also took over top position in the World Championship overall standings.

“The flight itself was quite good. But I’m not yet fit again after catching a cold last week. I had to open up at some point, couldn’t keep up the Gs for too long”, he said and added: “Of course it’s very disappointing because the World title has now become a more distant project. However, the speed is there and the basic package goes with it. We now can only hope that everything will be better at the next event in Budapest.“

Dolderer, who finished second behind Hall at the last event in Cannes, showed a superior performance defeating Frenchman Nicolas Ivanoff by almost a second in the first knock-out round of the day in Chiba, the Round of 14.

The next race will take place in Budapest on 23rd-24th June.
“We shall not change anything on the plane or the style. First of all I want to get fit again for the race – that’s the primary aim. We will push again and as always we will fight and do our best!”

About Red Bull Air Race:
Created in 2003, officially a world championship in 2005, the Red Bull Air Race has held over 65 races and is watched by millions of fans. The Red Bull Air Race World Championship features the world’s best race pilots in a pure motorsport competition that combines speed, precision and skill. Using the fastest, most agile, lightweight racing planes, pilots hit speeds of 370 kmh while enduring forces of up to 10G as they navigate a low-level slalom track marked by 25-meter-high, air-filled pylons. In 2014, the Challenger Cup was introduced, giving new pilots the chance to develop their low altitude flying skills. Throughout more than a decade of innovation, one thing has remained the same: the Red Bull Air Race World Championship is the ultimate motorsport series in the sky.
