Last summer we worked with four chaps from TOS on the Red Bull Air Races. We as TOS employees went along to London and to Porto.
From London, all the equipment was taken by lorry to Porto. As soon as we arrived in Porto we immediately started with preparations for the race. Aqua Events realises the activities on the water for Red Bull Air Races. The company has a large number of linkable pontoons from which large pontoons are made. On these large pontoons, the cones are placed between which the aircraft flies during the Air Race. After the pontoons had been completed, they were brought into position on the river.
