It’s December and it’s time for the annual Palisades meet, which mostly consists of current and past Lexus owners. No one had an excuse this year to skip out because of weather, with a high of 58F and sunny, could of asked for a better day. It’s been a few years since i’ve attended this meet, but its always a good time to catch up with fellow friends, talk about cars, grab some food and watch some football.
This event worried me a bit, because it’s a rain or shine. Myself and everyone else wanting to see this charity event bring in big numbers for Diabetes Research Institute. At one point during the week, it was 70% rain, but as the week progressed, 70% changed to 30% …thankfully. Last year the event saw some rain, and it reduced the number of attendees, but this year the streets of Glen Cove were full of exotics from Ferarri’s, Lamborghini’s , Aston Martin;s, Maserati’s, to Porsche ( & BMW of course). There was no signs of rain from my long 100 mile drive there or back; 80f & and even a bit of sun during the day! I had a great time and look forward to being apart of this charity even next year. Props to Martino Auto Concepts, Glen Cove, sponsors, vendors & bands for all the work they put into making this a successful charity event!

NEW YORK – April 30, 2010 – The metro area better fasten their seat belts because tickets are now on sale for the 2010 Red Bull Air Race New York being held in Liberty State Park in Jersey City this summer. In partnership with NYC & Company, Jersey City, NJ and Liberty State Park, the race will take place over the Hudson River on June 19 and 20.
With some luck, the sun will be shining as thousands of spectators look just feet above the river to see something other than tall buildings. In the Red Bull Air Race, fifteen of the world’s best pilots race individually against the clock for the fastest time through an aerial race track made up of inflatable air gates. This year marks the sixth year of the Red Bull Air Race World Championship which will also land in countries including Canada, Germany, Hungary and Portugal.
Tickets are available in different levels on www.redbullairrace.com. For General Admission tickets, standing room tickets start at $30 and Grandstand Reserved Seating start at $50. The Race Club provides hospitality, premium viewing, jumbotron screens, selection of food and beverages in a buffet form and a “party” atmosphere. Price for a 2-day pass will be $540.
Corporate groups can book a private lounge within the Business Race Club: requests will personally be managed by the Red Bull Air Race Hospitality Team under email@example.com. The High Flyers Lounge is the most premium level of hospitality at the Red Bull Air Race and includes the best views of the track and gourmet food and beverage. A service fee and the Liberty State Park fee will be applied to each ticket level. Questions and requests can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
So gather the family and tell your friends about your plans to attend Red Bull Air Race New York at Liberty State Park in Jersey City this summer. Unfortunately, the race will not be viewable from lower Manhattan. The Red Bull Air Race encourages everyone to buy tickets and plan transportation via ferries from Battery Park or the Light Rail in New Jersey. There will not be general admission spectator parking in Liberty State Park.
“Staging a Red Bull Air Race in New York City and Jersey City marks an important milestone in the history of the global motorsport championship and we feel privileged to be given this opportunity,” said Bernd Loidl, CEO of the Red Bull Air Race. “We look forward to our partnership with both cities and Liberty State Park by providing spectators with an incredible experience as well as enabling millions of television viewers around the globe to watch the best race pilots compete against the spectacular skyline of some of the world’s great cities.”
Over the past five years, the Red Bull Air Race has held races in major metropolitans such as London, Rio de Janeiro, Barcelona, and in the U.S. in San Diego, Detroit, San Francisco, and Monument Valley, Utah. Of the fifteen race pilots from around the world, two are Americans, Kirby Chambliss from Arizona and Michael Goulian from Massachusetts. Each pilot operates a year-round race team including a technician and team coordinator. The end goal for each race team is to accumulate as many points throughout the season in a quest to achieve the prestigious honor of 2010 Red Bull Air Race World Champion.
