When the Red Bull Air Race began in 2003 nobody envisaged that it would become one of the world's most thrilling motorsports.

The Red Bull Air Race features the world's best racing pilots in a pure motorsport competition that combines speed, precision and skill. Using the fastest, most agile, lightweight raceplanes, pilots hit speeds of 370kph while enduring forces of up to 10G as they navigate a low level slalom track marked by 25-metre-high, air-filled pylons.

Pilots competing in the Master Class category in races across the globe for the title of 2019 Red Bull Air Race World Champion.

The objective is to navigate an aerial racetrack featuring air-filled pylons in the fastest possible time, incurring as few penalties as possible. Pilots can win World Championship points at each race and the pilot with the most points after the last race of the season becomes the Red Bull Air Race World Champion.
