Red Bull Air Race Sat 17 & Sun 18 April, 2010.

Post by Matt. »

Its about to be that time again , flights and accommodation is booked and just got a 100-400 lens.

Who else is going this year?

I heard rumours that you will need tickets just to go to normal areas this year ??

Anyone have any inside info on tickets requirements and costs??

COOL! I expect that your chances are slim on inside information when the webpage doesn't have anything, but you never know. It'll be a shame if everything has a cost.

You mean next year ;) :P

I'm definatley going - either on duty with St.John or may accept a special invite to participate in a flyover or two or three ;) of the city on the two days :wink:

Either way, next year's Red Bull Air Race will be the best yet.

I've moved this post into the Special Events section - I thought it would be more appropriate :P

What areas will be partitioned off for fee-paying spectators?
Finalised this week, there are two ticketed areas that will be fenced off along the City of South Perth foreshore in Sir James Mitchell Park.

Ticketed Area #1 will be between Coode St and the Esplanade car park, Ticketed Area #2 will be between Hurlingham Rd and Douglas Ave.

What will the costs be?
The City is not directly involved in the process of deciding admission prices for the ticketed areas, and Red Bull Air Race organizers have not yet finalised prices.

Thanks Nachoman... There's some additional information about free viewing also on that linked page:
Will there be any space dedicated for "free viewing"?

There will be two substantial free viewing areas between Narrows Bridge and the Esplanade car park, and between Hurlingham Rd and Ellam St.

Free spectator areas will have toilet facilities, first aid stations, an area for lost children, free drinking water and rubbish bins.

The City required significant areas of the park to be unfenced to enable the public to enjoy the event free of charge.

What is the Council's position on charging spectators? Is it in favour of the move and does it see the move as justified?

This event is not organised by the City of South Perth. Charging spectators for events is a knock on effect of the global trend towards ticketed events.

http://www.redbullairrace.com is the Race Official Site - they usually put up more information on the Race a few months before hand :)

I will be there... and making people buy tickets to sit in the normal areas is beyond stupid - people can watch it from literally anywhere!

I will be there as long as i'm still in perth

Nah it's all quiet for the moment. Going on previous years I suspect that there won't be too much more said until fairly close to the date - but there's plenty of space for free access I think...

In a news update a few weeks ago - the Red Bull Air Race organisers have backed down to charge people to see the event.

So all areas will be free once again - but they will have the usual "member" stands on Sir James Mitchell Park in South Perth.
