Welcome to Blue Thunder Air Racing!
Why do we do what we do?The hair on your neck is standing straight up. Your eyes strain as you stare, closely observing shimmering objects in the distance. You feel your muscles tighten; you feel the electricity in the air. Amongst the wind, your ears begin to detect the faint sound of shear, raw, unimaginable horsepower, echoing off the distant mountains. The faint sound turns into symphonic vibrations of harmony, ever increasing in intensity.
Your eyes now have a lock on multiple, sharply angled aircraft. The mechanical music still grows, your muscles tighten, your eyes widen. The rush of power blasts by in a shattering roar as the thunder travels through your ears and down to your feet, then another, and another and still more. As the sound fades, the machines grow small, but the intensity remains. Your heart pounding, your adrenaline flowing, your body shaking, you have just witnessed the first lap, of an air race.
We get the same feeling!
