Red Bull Air Race World Championship
Following last year’s tremendous success, Ascot will once again be hosting the fastest motor-sport series in the world, the Red Bull Air Race World Championship. Featuring the world’s best pilots, this sport harnesses speed, precision and skill as agile planes are manoeuvred down a low-aerial track made up of 25 metre high air-filled pylons.
Saturday 15th August is the opening and qualifying day of the Red Bull Air Race weekend. There will be a range of entertainment to enjoy, with an array of elite pilots looking to secure the Challenger’s Cup and qualify for a starting position at Sunday’s Finale.
