Kirby Claims Detroit
The Red Bull Air Race World Series completed its swing through the United States, with American Kirby Chambliss winning Sunday’s race above the Detroit River in front of 750,000 fans watching from both sides of the U.S.-Canada border.
Chambliss defeated Britain’s Paul Bonhomme in the final, but Bonhomme collected eight points for second to climb further ahead in the championship standings. His 26 points lead Chambliss, Hannes Arch of Austria and American Mike Mangold, who are in a three-way tie for second with 21.
The six-race European leg begins July 5-6 in Stockholm.
“They’re all my rivals now,” said Bonhomme, who dominated the first two events in Abu Dhabi and San Diego.
