Pete McLeod is making a name for himself as a speed demon. In the last three races he’s set the fastest time in Qualifying and blasted away all the competition. He is setting track records and is one of the fastest athletes in the Red Bull Air Race World Championship. When he’s away from racing he loves nothing more than getting back to nature in his hometown, Red Lake in rural Canada. It’s how he recharges…

About: The Red Bull Air Race World Championship features the world’s best pilots in a motorsports competition based on speed, precision and skill. Using the fastest, most agile and lightweight racing planes, Red Bull Air Race pilots navigate a low-level aerial race track made up of air filled pylons, flying at speeds reaching 230mph while withstanding forces of up to 10g. The objective is to complete the course, navigating the 65 feet high specially designed inflatable pylons known as Air Gates in the fastest possible time. Red Bull Air Race pilots must pass between the Air Gates in the correct position taking care not to touch them with their wings. The pilots compete for points at each Red Bull Air Race and the one who accumulates the most at the end of the season is crowned Red Bull Air Race World Champion.
