Amanat and Mehreen to attend Air Race World Championship
Newest pop sensation Amanat Ali will join model turned actress Mehreen Raheal on an exclusive flight, in the much-hyped Red Bull Air Race World Championship that begins in Abu Dhabi, Friday (today). Both Pakistani stars have been specially invited to be a part of the two-day "high-speed, low-altitude" championship that enters its sixth straight year in 2010.
This is the first time that Pakistani showbiz stars are attending the Race where they will get to interact with the world's top pilots, besides rubbing shoulders with celebrities and media personalities from all over the world that have already descended on the picturesque UAE capital.
Last year saw an estimated 3.5 million spectators attending the races and 270 million followers of television broadcasts around the globe. The championship has the world's 15 best race pilots fly close to the ground at speeds reaching 370 km/hr (230 mph), while enduring forces of up to 12 Gs as they navigate unique and demanding race tracks made up of 20 metre high inflatable air gates. Ending March 27, Saturday (tomorrow), the championship is set to repeat its glorious history amid a cluster of international and our very own artists.
