.... I've just booked my flights to the US in September and I'm going to the National Air Races at Reno. Anybody can feel free to call me a lucky barsteward at any time :-).

Nice one you lucky barstool. 
 
Nothing better than watching a bit of pylon racing and the like.
 
Incidentaly, didn't Tasmania flirt with the idea of this several years ago?
 
I remember that a few events were held here but not sure exactly.

Yup, Tasmania ran an event in the 90's but it folded. The closest thing we have to this in Oz now it the Red Bull race in Perth (I went in 2006). It doesn't look a patch on Reno with the souped up WW2 fighters in the open class and the L-39 only class. Way cool. I hope they have the Thunderbirds or the Blue Angels doing a show.
