Alexander Rossi and Kirby Chambliss Go Head to Head

alexander-rossi-and-kirby-chambliss

In advance of the inaugural Red Bull Air Race, coming Oct. 1-2 to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, 2016 Indianapolis 500 champion Alexander Rossi joined Master Class pilot and two-time world champion Kirby Chambliss for a first-of-its-kind video shoot at IMS.

Chambliss and Rossi piloted their respective racecrafts in unison around the world’s most famous racetrack, creating a must-see video for airplane and racecar fans alike, as well as adrenaline junkies.

“I didn’t think anything of it until I was on track and there was a plane next to me,” said Rossi, driver of the No. 98 Honda for Andretti Herta Autosport with Curb-Agajanian. “It was a little bit trippy – when else are you going to be able to be driving an Indy car around the Speedway with a plane upside down next to you?”

The two motorsport athletes also switched roles, with Chambliss riding shotgun to Rossi in a two-seat Indy car and Rossi taking to the skies as Chambliss’ guest in a two-seat plane. Rossi experienced a strong dose of the nearly 10 Gs that Air Race pilots regularly confront during competitions. Chambliss also executed several dynamic aerial stunts with Rossi in the plane.

“The fact that I got in the plane makes me question my own sanity,” Rossi said.

The Red Bull Air Race will feature the world’s best pilots negotiating a course over the IMS infield and Brickyard Crossing Golf Course at speeds exceeding 230 mph.

“People always say ‘you’re crazy,’” Chambliss said. “I take it as a compliment.”

“You don’t see a plane and an Indy car racing down the backstretch every day,” said IMS President Doug Boles. “These guys are real pros there’s no doubt about that. I think our fans are going to be even more excited for the Air Race after watching this.”
