Alejandro Maclean of Spain made a major leap forward in 2007, climbing to a highly competitive sixth place with 16 points in his third season in the Red Bull Air Race World Championship after finishing a disappointing ninth in 2006 and 2005. Maclean, who owes his name to a Scottish grandfather, lost a lot of weight last season, flew smart and was a constant threat to the race hierarchy, reaching the semi-finals four times. Ultimately it was only a lack of consistency that prevented the Spanish pilot with a highly competitive nature from finishing higher. That should change in 2008, according to the intense man from Madrid.
http://www.redbullairrace.com -- About: The Red Bull Air Race World Championship features the world's best pilots in a motorsports competition based on speed, precision and skill. Using the fastest, most agile and lightweight racing planes, Red Bull Air Race pilots navigate a low-level aerial race track made up of air filled pylons, flying at speeds reaching 230mph while withstanding forces of up to 10g. The objective is to complete the course, navigating the 65 feet high specially designed inflatable pylons known as Air Gates in the fastest possible time. Red Bull Air Race pilots must pass between the Air Gates in the correct position taking care not to touch them with their wings. The pilots compete for points at each Red Bull Air Race and the one who accumulates the most at the end of the season is crowned Red Bull Air Race World Champion.
