Yoshihide Muroya wrote a new page in Japan’s sporting history on Sunday with his first race win – and the first-ever for Asia – at the Red Bull Air Race World Championship stop in Chiba, Japan. The home hero needed luck as well as supreme skill in a breathtakingly close battle, where Martin Šonka of the Czech Republic claimed second, while the USA’s Kirby Chambliss took third.
