Including Funny crashes

Pro BASE started to organize BASE jumping competitions in 2008 with the legendary Spain Base event at the Bali Hotel, competitors being scored on target landings. The huge success led to repeat it the following year and then expand to a tour of base jumping events: the ProBASE World Cup was born. The Pro BASE Wingsuit Race in Lauterbrunnen brought international attention as probably the most outrageous BASE jumping competition ever organized.
The tour ran from June to September and included meets at 4 venues; Kjerag, Norway; Innfjorden, Norway; Istanbul, Turkey; & Stechelberg, Switzerland.
Only professional flyers and proven competitors are invited, other pilots must fulfil a range of extremely tough prerequisites. The rules are extremely strict and safety is a top priority; only a large amount of experience, perfect control and precise handling skills will get pilots a slot. Safety rules mean a minimum canopy flight time of 20 seconds is required to avoid disqualification; also pilots must not invade the ‘lane’ of the other pilot.
