The international acrobatic race Adria Air Race 2012 will take place on the 9th June at Jarun Lake. After a last year’s event which was held in Zadar and was very successful, this year the acrobatic flights will be shown at Jarun. This is the information we got from the manager of this event, Marko Emer.
-The city of Zagreb recognized the importance of this event not only as a sport event, but as the happening which is important for the tourist offer of the city. The race is international and last year it was broadcast by Eurosport and showed later on several times. So we believe that it will mean a lot for the promotion of Zagreb and that many visitors from abroad will come to see it – Emer pointed out.
He added that the competitors are the best acrobatic pilots. There are not many of them who are permitted to do such acrobatics.
-One of the competitors who will try to get a medal is Branimir Ambrekovic. He missed the chance to get a medal last year. There will also be Martin Vecko who doesn’t need any further announcement because even those who are not interested in acrobatic flights have heard about him. There will also be TomoPoljanec, the winner of last year’s AA-Race event, Jago Stemberger and Andrew Bick more- said Emer.
He added that the program will be a bit different from last year’s but this will make the race even more interesting and difficult for the competitors.
-One of the main features of this sport is its appeal for the spectators. This time it will be flown above the lake, very near to the audience and it is certain that no one will be disappointed with it – the manager of the event asserts.
Together with the spectacular event in the sky, the visitors will be able to enjoy themselves in a very interesting program on the ground. The whole thing starts at 10 am. The program is meant for all, so after watching sky diving performances, helicopter flights and war planes and passenger planes over-flights, the youngest visitors will have a chance to have a seat in the planes on the ground.
-The entertaining program will start at 10 am. After the competition and acrobatic part there will be one more surprise for all visitors. I can only say that visitors will be able to listen to great music – Emer pointed out.
