Hot Off the Press, Red Bull Air Race, Las Vegas, 2014!

Incredible, no jet lag this week! Having two races back to back here in the States is awesome for Team Chambliss! Coming up fast is Qualifying Day and the Las Vegas Motor Speedway is the perfect place to have the 7th Race in the World Championship Series.

Thursday was a transition day for all Teams, moving from the North Las Vegas Airport to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Kirby had his first practice flight at North Las Vegas and went right into the photo flight with Nigel, Pete and Martin. I’m sure you’ve already seen these on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. There were some spectacular photos taken of the formation flight at Lake Mead, Hoover Dam and on the Las Vegas Strip. This one was with our new camera, the GoPro HERO4, cool, huh?

The transition proved to be a smooth one, even time for a run through the track. Kirby finished the day with two interviews and then headed for the hotel for a well deserved break! Today will be all about practicing through the track, multiple times. Kirby is working on finding the best, most efficient line through the track. Stay tuned for more…

Hot Off The Press, Red Bull Air Race, Las Vegas 2014!

Wednesday was a pull it together day, packed with meetings for Kirby and Team Chambliss. The day started off with a practice flight to keep Kirby’s G tolerance up. He can loose his G tolerance very quickly so by flying and pulling G’s everyday he can keep his G tolerance top notch!
After several meetings, Kirby headed to the Las Vegas Convention Center to make an autograph signing appearance for Red Bull. The Team got a sneak peek at some new flavors of Red Bull and now we can’t wait for them to come out! Bonus!
Meetings took most of the afternoon and evening, with topics ranging from rule changes to new teams for next year and everything in between.  Stay tuned on teamchambliss.com and remember to follow Kirby on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for all the latest news. We want to hear from you! Can’t wait to see you! Smoke On!
