2012 World BASE Race Event
A race to determine the World’s Fastest Flying Human Being in the sport of BASE jumping
Romsdalen, Norway, April 7, 2012/Friluftslek/- Envision two athletes standing on wooden platforms at the edge of a mountain cliff. Each dressed in state-of-the-art wingsuits. At the signal, they jump and race head-on towards the finish line, deploying their parachutes and gliding to a safe landing.
The World BASE Race is a racing sprint event in which the winners of each heat progress through the tournament. The race is designed with an easy to understand concept, that has proven to be spectator friendly. The number of heats is determined by the number of participants, eliminating pilots until the world’s fastest flyer is crowned the winner. The athletes must possess the physical capabilities enabling them to hike the mountain during each round, along with the mental toughness and self-awareness to know their limits.
The World BASE Race celebrates its 5th year of competition in July of 2012. The sport has evolved in both equipment and pilot skill since first appearing on the cliffs of Norway in 1980. Only the best of the best pilots are invited to participate in an event that allows spectators and journalists access too many of the sport’s top athletes.
