No Red Bull Air Race for Perth?

Red Bull Air Race - Perth - Western Australia
A Red Bull Air Race Place flys past the Duxton Hotel.

The West Australian – No Red Bull Air Race for Perth

I’ve had the opportunity to see the Air Race three times now, once in Abu Dhabi and twice in Perth, and every time it was a well attended and action packed day, and free too.  I guess that’s where the problem lies, free events cost someone somewhere some money and Tourism WA have decided it’s not worth the dollar in Perth.

Let’s hope they find something just as exciting to replace it…
