Red Bull Air Race 2015: Red Bull Air Race announces 2015 dates

After a very successful 2014 season which saw the victory of British pilot Nigel Lamb, the Red Bull Air Race Championship is coming back in 2015 for eight races.

The FAI is excited with the news, all the more so since the Federation is very much involved in the Red Bull Air Race World Championship.

Indeed, the FAI signed an agreement with Red Bull Air Race World Championship last year 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 delegate who attends all events to supervise safety aspects.

The 2015 Red Bull Air Race World Championship will feature two new stops in Japan and Russia along with a return to Budapest, Hungary. The world's fastest motorsport series will also be back at five popular locations in 2015 with stops in Abu Dhabi (UAE), Ascot (GBR), Spielberg (AUT), Fort Worth and Las Vegas (USA).

“We’re always making efforts to bring the sport to our fans and we’re delighted that we can now officially announce that Red Bull Air Race will visit 2015 two new countries. We will race in Japan and Russia, countries full of enthusiastic motorsport and aviation fans and once again Hungary, where the Red Bull Air Race has a great fanbase,” said Erich Wolf, General Manager of the Red Bull Air Race.

The Red Bull Air Race World Championship

Created in 2003, but officially a World Championship since 2005, the Red Bull Air Race is followed by millions of fans across over 50 races held worldwide. The Red Bull Air Race World Championship features the world’s best race pilots in a pure motor-sport competition that combines speed, precision and skill. The pilots use the fastest, most agile and lightweight racing planes to navigate a predefined, low-level aerial racetrack of air-filled pylons (Air Gates) with the aim of finishing in the fastest time possible, incurring as few penalties as possible.
