Former Red Bull Air Race World Championship star Matt Hall will take to a track of a different kind this week when he flies over the famous Bathurst circuit for this week’s V8 Supercars round.
Hall, who after the year long sabbatical was called by Air Race organisers, has spent 2011 exciting crowds around Australia with his thrilling aerobatic demonstrations, will fly overhead the Bathurst track on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
The 40-year-old former RAAF Wing Commander said he was looking forward to the opportunity to again perform for a V8 Supercars crowd following his debut for the series at Sandown in 2010.
“Any fan of sport or motor racing in Australia knows about Bathurst and the history of the track and the race weekend here,” Hall said.
“I am no different in that regard and I have spent many an October long weekend watching these amazing drivers test themselves, their cars and their crews in this race.
“V8’s have given me the opportunity to showcase what I can do in my MXS-R race plane and I can’t wait.”
On Thursday Hall will give Channel 7 personality Tom Williams the ride of a lifetime in his two-seat Extra 300L – all of which can be seen on Channel 7’s live coverage of Sunday’s race.
Hall will then be offering a limited number of joyflights in the Extra 300L throughout the weekend. To register interest email: email@example.com.
Hall will also perform his aerobatic routine at the Symmons Plains and Sandown V8 Supercars events this year.
