Formula One, along with the Sport and Jet Classes, saw big attendance this year, with more than 40 airplanes racing in the Sport Class alone. However, the Unlimited Class saw fewer than a dozen airplanes, bringing two sparse heats. The airplanes have simply become too expensive to operate and too valuable to risk the damage caused by the immense stress the races cause. With Strega as a no-show and Rare Bear and 232 parked on display outside the VIP chalets, Voodoo, flown by Steven "Stevo" Hinton, had little competition. But the airplanes, with their roaring engines, still made the spectators' hearts beat a little faster.
