Skydive Atlanta competed Saturday, June 9, 2012, at Piedmont Park in the Red Bull Soapbox Atlanta race. Being in the business of high adrenaline, this speed loving business saw a perfect fit to show off their fearless love of fun.
Modeled after the Super King Air, the airplane used to take anxious skydivers to 14,000 feet altitude, the racer was built by Ride on Bikes, a business in Columbus, Georgia.
The racing team was made up of pilots and skydivers. None of them was afraid of speed and speed was what the team got when they went downhill on 10th Street. They promised and delivered an entertaining show.
“It was just a great opportunity to have some good old fashion fun,” says owner Trey Holladay.
Chosen out of thousands of entries, this was the first time they participated in a soapbox derby. Skydive Atlanta was one of 40 teams from Georgia, Alabama, California, Florida, Missouri, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
