Photos/Video Of The Day: Red Bull Air Race Rovinj

I don't have too add much here. I posted not that long ago about this prestigious extreme sporting event here and said I would finish off the story with some images and footage from the day. I actually watched the event live and found it to be pretty cool. This took place in the coastal town of Rovinj which is part of the Istra region of Croatia. There was spills, chills and tense drama. (No crashes though, which is good)  The difference between 1st and 2nd was only .08/100ths of a second. Around 80,000 people showed up for the race. I also found out that all the plane engines are exactly the same engines and same horse power, which means the race really is all about skill and technique, and that there are very precise rules and penalties when taking on the obstacle course. More info at the links.
