Hartzell is a proud partner of the Red Bull Air Races, and that means a few lucky members of the Hartzell Team have gotten to witness the world’s fastest motorsport first hand. Over the weekend, Hartzell’s own Sam Gascho gave our Facebook fans a behind the scenes look at the second Air Race in Rovinj, Croatia along with up to the minute coverage of each round of the competition. In case you missed it, Hannes Arch took home the win, while Paul Bonhomme and Yoshida Muroya came in second and third, respectively. Bonhomme, having won the season’s first race, continues to lead the season’s point standings.
Hartzell provides the Red Bull Air Racers with our cutting edge aerobatic propeller, known as “The Claw.” Our technical expertise gives us the incredible opportunity to meet these world-class aviators and see the powerful machines they control up-close. Below are some of the incredible images Sam was able to capture from this weekend’s race. The next Red Bull Air Race will take place May 17-18 in Putrajaya, Malaysia. Follow Hartzell Propeller on Twitter and Facebook to get an inside look at the race and the racers.
