For this month’s adrenaline-fueled event, I follow the Red Bull Air Race as it brings me back for the second time in this beautiful city. Beautiful city backdrops, river Kazanka, coupled with the magnificent Kazan Kremlin yet again provide me with excellent opportunities for rich panoramic photography. The pilots touch down in Kazan on 25-26 August 2018. Kazan is the capital of the Republic of Tatarstan in Russia and home to more than a million people.
The city lies at the meeting point of the River Volga and Kazanka River, which is overlooked by the Kazan Kremlin – a World Heritage Site. Kazan is known as the “Sports Capital of Russia” and has hosted such iconic events as the World Fencing Championship, the World Aquatics Championship and is a host city for 2018’s FIFA World Cup. The pilots will get their second taste of racing in Russia on the 25-26 August.
Kevin Coleman saved his best for Race Day in Russia as he won the Challenger Cup race in spectacular fashion. The American pilot, who hasn’t raced since Abu Dhabi back in February, was second into the track and set an unbeatable time of 58.316s.
