The Red Bull Air Race World Championship features the world’s best race pilots in a motor sports competition that combines speed, precision and skill.
Using the fastest, most agile and lightweight racing plane, pilots navigate a low-level aerial track made up of air-filled pylons, flying at speeds reaching 370 km/h (230 mph) while withstanding forces of up to 12G.
From the heart of the city to the open countryside, over land or water, a Red Bull Air Race can take place almost anywhere. Spectacular backdrops and jaw-dropping action guarantee that spectators experience one of the most innovative and exciting sports around today.
Founded in 2003, the Red Bull Air Race World Championship has staged 50 races around the globe including races in New York City, Budapest, Abu Dhabi, London (UK), Istanbul, Perth, Rio de Janeiro, San Diego, Barcelona and Windsor, Ontario, Canada among many other major cities.
Organizers announced a restructuring of the world championship after the 2010 season to address the business model and rapid grow the series had experienced. Racing has been halted for 2011 and 2012 while a management team is currently working to re-launch the championship.
