Heavy warbird iron (Unlimited), JETS, kit planes (GO LANCAIR'S!!!!!), biplanes, T-6 Texans, and even the scary fast and tiny F1 homebuilts. F1 speeds 230mph on ~120hp, bipes 200 on 150-180hp, T-6s 230mph, Jets 500mph, Unlimiteds 500mph, kit planes (Sport class) 390mph!
FASTEST motor sport in the world! Eat your heart out NASCAR. PS Red Bull, these guys have the guts to race 8 planes at the same time.....
And this is the longest running aviation sport: REAL Pylon racing.
We are very proud at my office of the STIHL sponsored Lancair Legacy and their team. Great guys!
Fly low, go fast, turn left
Enjoy the show folks!
