He paraglides, paramotors, kite-surfs, BASE jumps, climbs and skis his way around the globe. And now Pal Takats brings his aerobatic stunts to Ascot, for a dramatic first-hand demonstration. Bringing even more adrenalin fuelled action are the Breitling Wingwalkers, the world’s only aerobatic formation group.
As far as aerial displays go, The Flying Bull’s Bell Cobra is the richest in history: first used during the Vietnam War this combat helicopter has undergone a laborious restoration and is a spectacle to behold.
Watching the wide range of extreme sports and high-octane racing on show this year is one thing. Experiencing real adrenalin at the same time is another, therefore several interactive experiences will be open for attendee use. High Wire Rope Challenges and Climbing Walls will test your nerve as you reach new heights above the lawns of Ascot.
For something a bit closer to the ground why not try out the Bungee Trampoline, or even take a lesson in BMX, Scooter and Skateboarding with the Team Extreme coaches.
There’s no shortage of fun things to do at the Red Bull Air Race this year, and for all ages. The fun fair ride Extreme Orbiter delivers fast-paced action perfect for any young adrenalin-seeker, whilst the tamer Mini Jets offer a fun fair ride suitable for kids of all ages.

Standing at 25 metres tall, the pylons created specifically for the Red Bull Air Race have become widely recognised icons of this global motorsport series.
This year we are offering attendees the opportunity to step inside the pylons to learn about how they are constructed before a race, as well as what happens when a pylon is cut by a plane wing – a sight not uncommon at Red Bull’s famous Air Race.
