The first race of the 2017 Red Bull Air Race calendar in February will be a celebration of milestones for the official World Championship: the tenth season of competition, the tenth consecutive opener in Abu Dhabi and the diamond 75th race for the coveted title.
As a first-time world champion from Germany begins the campaign to defend his crown title, the Red Bull Air Race World Championship will celebrate a trio of landmarks above the shimmering waters of the Arabian Gulf in Abu Dhabi, 10-11 February 2017. The full Red Bull Air Race calendar announcement will follow in January.
FAI and Red Bull Air Race World Championship signed an agreement including the provision of FAI medals especially designed for the Red Bull Air Race, the inclusion of all races in the FAI Events Calendar, and the official approval by the FAI of the race Rules & Regulations. Furthermore, the FAI provides a safety delegate who attends all events to supervise safety aspects.
