Red Bull Air Race 2010: Kindlemann Unable To Compete In Brazil Due to Crash
Adilson Kindlemann must unfortunately remain on the ground as the 2010 Red Bull Air Race heads to his home country. After crashing into the water in Perth, the Brazilian has no chances of getting back in the air in time for the race in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Adilson Kindlemann, from Curibita, Brazil, is the first South American pilot to be selected to compete in the championship. However, due to his crash at the last race in Perth, he will not be able to fly in the race in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Following an assessment by the Sporting Medical Director of the Red Bull Air Race Dr. Helmut Haunstein, the Red Bull Air Race Committee has decided to reinstate Team Kindlemann for the European races.
After a plane crash, getting back in the air is no easy process. It will be almost three months before Adilson Kindlemann will be able to return to competition.
Several prerequisites will hinder his return, including training in a new race plane as well as additional requirements from the medical director.
The native Brazilian commented on the Red Bull Air Race's visit to Rio de Janeiro in 2007.
“The first time I saw the Red Bull Air Race in Rio I thought ‘this is fantastic’,” said Kindlemann. “I’d never seen anything like it and it was just amazing, a million people watching such great flying."
Adilson Kindlemann is justifiably disappointed that he will not be able to participate in the exciting race in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
"Brazilians love speed," said Kindlemann. "They love airplanes and they love Formula One. The whole country is excited about the race. I’m sure this year’s crowd will be even larger than the last time around.”
It is clear that his crash in Perth has not affected Kindlemann's spirit. While he won't be making a reappearance at the 2010 Red Bull Air Race, this is surely not the last we will see of Brazilian Adilson Kindlemann.
