As I write this update, Kirby is on his way back to Arizona. Thirty hours and three flights later, he’ll be home. Team Chambliss is still in Croatia beginning to disassemble the airplane for the trip to Malaysia. Kirby and the rest of the Team have worked very hard, incredibly long hours to make this week happen.
Here is what Kirby had to say about today’s pylon hit on the number five gate…”It’s going to be catch up, but I don’t have any excuses. It’s little bit windy out there. I was trying to run fast… I’m really disappointed, my team worked really hard to get the plane ready but it’s all on me out there on the track.”
Signing off from the Red Bull Air Race in Croatia 2014!
