Some images from day 1 of round 2 of the Red Bull Air Race held in Perth, Western Australia.
After qualifying rounds 1 & 2, English pilot Paul Bonhomme qualified fastest. Surprisingly, Hungary’s Peter Besenyei failed to make the top 10 and is now in the Wildcard shootout on Sunday morning to try and grab a place in the top 12.
Perth put on a great show. The public transport was excellent with a free bus service (no. 747) from Perth Esplanade station on the North side of Swan River right to the heart of the action at Sir James Mitchell Park on the South.
