Baku, June 13, AZERTAC
Red Bull skydiving team performed astonishing feats of daring and skill from great heights.
With only 8 days to go until the 2016 FORMULA ONE GRAND PRIX OF EUROPE in Baku, Azerbaijan, Baku City Circuit (BCC) has today released a new video featuring the incredible Red Bull skydivers, Marco Waltenspiel and George Lettner, performing astonishing feats of daring and skill from great heights.
The video sees both men execute a breath-taking wing-suit jump from a helicopter high above Baku, before swooping at high-speed over the city, taking in every corner of the impressive Baku City Circuit, and finishing with a perfect landing in the pit lane.
After his wing-suit jump, Marco Waltenspiel said: "Baku bay from the sky looks amazing, especially now, when the spirit of Formula 1 can be felt everywhere! Flying over it and following the route of the track, I could feel how exciting it will be. I feel honored and happy to be able to participate in such an inspirational moment in front of – or above - the people of Baku! It is my first time here but the great hospitality of the Azerbaijani people together with the beautiful city landscape has inspired me to return very soon".
Arif Rahimov, Executive Director of Baku City Circuit said: "We were excited to host the brave Red Bull skydivers who challenged themselves to conquer our city of winds. I believe the video will be truly inspiring for every Azerbaijani to see the amazing scenes of these athletes flying over the iconic Baku landmarks and the track itself. With only 8 days left until the inaugural F1 race in Baku, we urge all fans not to miss the opportunity to be part of sporting history. Get your ticket now and join us for a weekend of Formula 1 excitement".
