Steve Jones had a roller-coaster ride in 2007, winning in spectacular fashion in Porto but finishing 12th in Istanbul and crashing so heavily into a pylon in Monument Valley that he was forced to retire from that race. He hit the pylon just a few meters above the ground.

The British Boeing 747 captain nevertheless made a move up from the middle of the pack last season, finishing fifth overall in the most competitive field in the Red Bull Air Race's history after taking sixth place in both 2005 and 2006.

About: The Red Bull Air Race World Championship features the world's best pilots in a motorsports competition based on speed, precision and skill. Using the fastest, most agile and lightweight racing planes, Red Bull Air Race pilots navigate a low-level aerial race track made up of air filled pylons, flying at speeds reaching 230mph while withstanding forces of up to 10g. The objective is to complete the course, navigating the 65 feet high specially designed inflatable pylons known as Air Gates in the fastest possible time. Red Bull Air Race pilots must pass between the Air Gates in the correct position taking care not to touch them with their wings. The pilots compete for points at each Red Bull Air Race and the one who accumulates the most at the end of the season is crowned Red Bull Air Race World Champion.
