◆ What is a pylon?
In the early morning on the day of the race race, we had a special visit to the pylon.

A pylon filled with air is 25 meters high. Overwhelming presence when looking at near. Materials are different in the vicinity of the apex and the bottom with the cloths joined in a hierarchy. The pylon is about 10,000 euros (about 1.4 million yen) per piece of cloth alone.

Since the Red Bull link is a circuit with a large height difference, the level is adjusted by the base part.

The foundation is composed of iron pipes and inside is like this.

A computer that adjusts the pressure of the air inside the pylon in the foundation. The computer automatically controls the pylon to the correct posture.

I was given a special pylon. This is a door in the center part of the bottom of the pylon. When opening this door, the air pressure inside the pylon falls and the pylon collapses, so the closing of the door needs to be done quickly, and invasion and escape from the pylon is required to be done quickly.

Looking up the pylon from inside it is like this.

The tip was hanging down as there was going in and out.

Aspirate air from here to increase the pressure inside the pylon.

A pressure gauge outside.

It is Honda's to turn the fanGXV 530. In the race it will rotate full in explosion mode to stretch the pylon.

When deflating the pylon, winding it from the tip with this roller prevents the pylon from falling sideways.

A big hole on the side of the pylon. This is a hole for connecting the hose so that the air can be adjusted from the outside in case the computer malfunctions. Until the computer was developed, I always adjusted the air manually with watching the pressure gauge using this hole.

The state of the circuit venue
At the entrance of the main stand, a two-story bus with a flashy air race specification greets the audience.

On the day of the race race was crowded with lots of people from around 10 o'clock in the morning.

The Red Bull link has a lawn slope where the height difference is large, and many people are leisurely in a picnic mode.

A special coffee shop is also open.

The back of the stand was filled with people at 11 o'clock in the morning.

I bought beer ......

While waiting for the start of the race while dining.

I decided to go to the Grand Stand in the west side of the course.

A pylon has already been set up in the course. It is a very nice place of air race to see the whole course and watch the whole part of the race. It does not mean that you can see only a part of the course like F1.

It is also OK to check the race situation such as time with huge display.

Many times I look up to the sky, the customer's sunglasses rate is high.

You can see the pylon of the start gate and finish gate on the front of the ground stand.

Around the Red Bull link are plenty of wonderful views spreading plains like being surrounded by mountains.

Then move to the south side of the course.

Various attractions such as racing carts were prepared in the circuit.

So, I go down the hill to see the inside of the circuit.

Go through the tunnel and go inside the circuit.

◆ Race in the race
The final race starts at last. In the qualifying yesterday I watched from the hill on the north side of the course, but the final race came to the starting point on the south side of the course so that the moment of the start and goal can be seen soon.

In the final race, the top twelve of the preliminary rounds compete on a one-on-one basis according to the time of qualifying, the winners of the first round, the first round winner and the top two time players, the winners of the Super 8, Super 8 The winner will decide in a total of three rounds of Super 4 which will be held in the time trial of four passers.

Mr. Muroya said after the race, "Since the temperature was higher than yesterday's qualifying, we assumed that the time would drop (Note: the air will become thinner as the temperature goes up.) In the race I did not get the time However, I do not know where I made a mistake if I look closely at the video, "he looked back at the race result.

After the first round the top time is the local star Hannes Ali.

Super 8 started with eight passers in the first round. The top time was Alhi who blew 56 seconds 701 following the first round. Then Nicolas Ivanov lost the 10th in qualifying. And Martin Sonka, ranking top Nigel · Lam and so on, these four advanced to Super 4.

Ivanov who jumped up at a stroke from the 10th place of the previous day and won the championship. On the day of the bad finish I showed a flight of remembrance that exceeds the qualifying time. Ivanov's victory symbolizes the real pleasure of an air race where one reversal can be greatly present.
