Here at Finding Performance Statistics we usually focus on tech, or more specifically, computer related statistics. It’s Friday and I’d thought we could look at a particularly unusual, impressive statistic. How fast can you do a pit stop in zero gravity?

For many of us, the love of fast things, doesn’t stop with a box in our homes. This one has it all. State of the art car, plane, and a fast crew to boot. Aston Martin teamed with Red Bull for an unusual challenge. Red bull is a well known for their sponsorship of Xtreme sports and hosting a number of Xtreme challenges. This time they’re taking it to an all new high. A twenty second zero gravity pit stop for an F1. The team went to Russia to get a ride up to 33,000 feet in a Ilyushin il-76 MDK training plane used for cosmonauts.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
