Bonhomme increases lead before final competition.
Challenging wind conditions and scorching temperatures faced the Red Bull Air Race competitors as they flew around the inflated pylon course at the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas. The winds made it difficult for the pilots to keep their airplanes within the tight confinements of the course and several pilots demolished the air gates as their wingtips sliced into the thinly covered pylons.
In the end, British pilot Paul Bonhomme flew a clean, fast race and won — his fourth win out of seven completed races this year.
