Red Bull Air Race World Championship Brings High-Speed, Low-Altitude Thrills Back To San Diego Bay April 15 And 16
The series returns for its tenth season with the first race in Abu Dhabi in February, and will conclude at the motorsport mecca of Indianapolis Motor Speedway in October. Along the way, the eight-stop World Championship will celebrate a decade of the most exciting motorsports series in the sky with a return to America’s Finest City, a favorite stop from 2007, 2008 and 2009, and a premiere stop in Kazan, Russia.
The Red Bull Air Race World Championship features 14 of the world’s best race pilots in a motorsport competition that combines speed, precision and skill as pilots navigate a low-level aerial track made up of air-filled pylons 80 feet high at speeds of up to 230 mph. During tight turns through air gates that are only 32 to 45 feet apart, the daredevils are subjected to G-force that makes them 10 times their normal weight.
