The iON Camera crew worked extensively with owner/pilot, Pete “Zack” Zaccagnino, of the High Performance Aircraft Racing Team (HPAR) at the Reno Air Races in Nevada to bring you insight into the world’s fastest motor-sports race. Imagine flying 520 miles per hour, 50 feet above the desert, a few feet away from your competition with no room for error. iON is proud to announce that Pete with the HPAR Team, won the title of the world’s fastest pilot by winning the Gold Jet Class division at the 50th Anniversary of the Reno Air Races.

All aerial footage shot on iON Cameras.
