About the Red Bull Air Race

The Red Bull Air Race World Championship is an official World Championship, accredited by the FAI – The World Air Sports Federation.

Since it was officially launched, the Red Bull Air Race World Championship has become globally renowned as the fastest and most exhilarating motorsport on the planet.

Devised by the Red Bull sports think-tank, the initial goal was to create the most advanced aerial challenge the world had ever seen; what has evolved into the Red Bull Air Race we know today has far exceeded any original expectations.

It is a visual spectacle unlike any other. A combination of high speed, low altitude and extreme manoeuvrability make it only accessible to the world's most exceptional pilots.

Twelve pilots are competing in the Master Class category in eight races across the globe for the title of 2014 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.

And in a change from previous seasons, during 2014 all 12 pilots are racing with a standardised propulsion package – a high-performance, race-tuned standardised engine and standardised propellers.

An exciting new feature of the 2014 Red Bull Air Race World Championship is the debut of the new Challenger Cup, giving a new generation of talented pilots from around the world a chance to experience the thrills of the sport.

The 11 outstanding new pilots from 10 different nations will be racing for Challenger Cup points, and the even more valuable Red Bull Air Race track experience on Qualifying Days of the World Championship. The twin aims of the Challenger Cup are to give new pilots the chance to develop their low-altitude flying skills under racing conditions and thus further enhance the overall safety of the world's fastest motorsport series.
