About Red Bull Air Race

Created in 2003, the Red Bull Air Race World Championship has held more than 90 races around the globe. The Red Bull Air Race is renowned as the fastest and most exhilarating motorsport on the planet. Using the most agile, lightweight racing planes, pilots hit speeds of 370 kmh while enduring forces of up to 10G as they navigate a slalom track marked by 25-metre-high, air-filled pylons, known as ‘air gates’. Points are awarded at the end of the race to the pilot finishing in the fastest possible time with the fewest penalty seconds. The pilot with the most points after the last race of the season becomes the Red Bull Air Race world champion. In 2014, the Challenger Cup was added to the competition programme. Challenger Cup creates conditions for the preparation of the younger generation for the Master Class race.
