Felix Baumgartner’s Latest Drift / Helicopter Project
via Redbull.com: When you’ve jumped from the edge of the space, as Felix Baumgartner did during the Red Bull Stratos mission, then the bar is set pretty high for future thrill seeking projects. Since leaping from 24 miles above earth and hitting speeds in excess of 800mph during his freefall descent, the Austrian has kicked-off a successful career as an endurance racing driver. Another passion he has been working on is flying helicopters, and it was these skills he showcased in Poland during the recent Red Bull Heli Drifting performance.
With Felix at the controls of a Bolkov BO105 aerobatic helicopter, he teamed up with Polish drifting ace Jakub Przygoński and his Toyota GT 86 1000HP. The name of game was seeing how closely the chopper could track the movements of the race car.
