Red Bull Air Race Hit By Bad Weather
Organisers of the Red Bull air race settled for an abbreviated contest yesterday, after Saturday’s qualifying session was completely wiped out by the heavy rain and wind. Mathias Dolderer of Germany was declared the winner after two rounds.

Instead of racing in pairs, each pilot made a solo run against the clock.

In addition, the stunt flights underneath the Chain Bridge had to be cancelled.
