The Red Bull Air Races came to San Diego not long ago after an 8 year hiatus. For those not familiar with this kind of motorsports event, here is the press release info from Red Bull.

“The Red Bull Air Race features the world's best racing pilots in a pure motorsport competition that combines speed, precision and skill. Using the fastest, most agile, lightweight raceplanes, pilots hit speeds of 370kph while enduring forces of up to 10G as they navigate a low level slalom track marked by 25-metre-high, air-filled pylons.”

The race took place in the middle of San Diego Bay and shut down all water traffic during the races. While interesting, the pace is kind of slow as only one plane is allowed in the area at a time. But it can be a bit of a challenge to capture these really quick planes.

Very cool, thanks for sharing these! Just curious - did the planes take off and land out of San Diego International, or ?

No, I believe that they were staged at Brown Field in the south bay.

That makes sense - knowing how busy that area is, I was trying to figure out how they could make it work, in such proximity to San Diego, and NAS North Island.
