Red Bull Air Race 2018 - Cannes
For the first time in the history of the Red Bull Air Race, the pilots will be going head-to-head in France, in the beautiful city of Cannes on 21-22 April 2018. With five French pilots in the series (three Masters, two Challengers) it will be their first opportunity to experience a home race, and it will be one to remember.
Next up is Sweden's Ryfa... he came so close but was so far from the top step of the podium in Abu Dhabi, and it looks like he's on a mission this weekend to show the Challengers what he's really got.
Clean through the first three splits, over 1.9s faster than Astles, but a slight miscalculation at Gate 15 and Ryfa has picked up +1s for an incorrect vertical turning manoeuvre... still, it's enough to keep him ahead of Astles, who sits in second as Ryfa takes the top spot.
Ryfa - 1:03.761
