Crónica Cuatro: Interview and reportage
You could almost always find Juan Velarde in the air. When he takes off his Iberia-pilot suit, he jumps in the flight suit to do impossible turns at 400 km/h. He’s the only spaniard in the Red Bull Air Race, the fastest motorsport in the planet. In this race, each thousandth of a second counts, that’s why, behind each one of Juan’s maneouvres there’s a team of proffessionals that work constantly to reduce the track times. They study every single detail and each parameter of the plane, as well as the G-forces that their pilot will withstand during the races. Team Velarde is a perfect mechanism of preparation, technique, precission and power.
