Wingsuit Racers Take on the World’s Highest Race

It’s a race 8,000 feet straight down.

Wingsuits basically transform the body into a glider. So when competitors from the Red Bull Aces leap from the helicopter, they use their bodies to slalom through four race gates suspended mid-air as they attempt to beat their opponents while still, oh yes, surviving a fall well over a mile from the ground.

Watch the video of wingsuit racing below.
