The 2010 Red Bull Air Race World Championship lands in Windsor, Ontario for an aerial display of speed, precision and skill. Windsor, also known as The City of Roses is the southernmost city in Canada and has hosted the Air Race since it became the first Canadian city to do so in 2009, stealing it from their American counterparts in Detroit Michigan, where it had been held a year earlier. it
Red Bull touted the 2009 race in Windsor as one of the most exciting in the seven-year history of the Air Race World Championship, and on January 22, 2010, it was announced that Windsor will be a host city for the 2010 and 2011 circuits. The event attracted 200,000 fans to the Detroit River waterfront in 2009.
The Red Bull Air Race was established in 2003, as an international series of air races in which competitors have to navigate a challenging obstacle course in the fastest time. Pilots fly individually against the clock and have to complete tight turns through a slalom course consisting of pylons, known as "Air Gates". The races are held mainly over water near cities, but are also held at airfields or natural wonders. They are accompanied by a supporting program of show flights. Races are usually flown on weekends with the first day for qualification then knockout finals the day after. The events attract large crowds and are broadcast live in many nations. At each venue, the top nine places earn World Championship points. The air racer with the most points at the end of the Championship becomes Red Bull Air Race World Champion. The 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 series were won respectively by the pilots Mike Mangold, Kirby Chambliss, Mangold, Hannes Arch and Paul Bonhomme.
Canadian pilot Pete McLeod, who only joined the Championship in 2009 will be hoping he can impress in his home country.
