There is some footage of both events on youtube.
Yeah the Red Bull races look cool with everyone flying inbetween the gates, but the Oval type races are definitely the more dangerous with all those planes flying in close proximity at top speed. Too bad about the 3 pilots who didn't make it.

OT- I'm looking forward to flying the Hornet and doing some carrier traps, otherwise I still consider LOMAC to be the superior sim for aerobatics.
