Leading the way from his native Texas to Las Vegas for the season finale of the 2015 Red Bull Air Race World Championship, Kirby Chambliss took fellow pilots Nicolas Ivanoff of France and Matthias Dolderer of Germany on a flight through one of the most iconic regions of the American West: Monument Valley.
Only one stop remains in the eighth season of the Red Bull Air Race World Championship – the finale in Las Vegas on Oct. 17-18 – and the race planes are already on their way. Ferrying his Edge 540 from the previous stop in Fort Worth, Texas, Chambliss, a native of the American Southwest, took the opportunity to show Dolderer and Ivanoff the glorious landscape of Monument Valley, Utah.
It was a chance to clear their heads before the action to come at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, where Team Chambliss, Ivanoff’s Team Hamilton and Matthias Dolderer Racing will join the 11 other teams. Britain’s Paul Bonhomme and Australia’s Matt Hall will be racing for the World Championship title, in a winner-takes-all showdown battle in the final race of the 2015 season. Bonhomme is clinging to a slim eight-point point with 12 points up for grabs.
