In this exhilarating sport, a blend of ability, experience and courage, overlaid with a good deal of consistency will determine the 2017 Red Bull Air Race World Championship. Fourteen of the world's top pilots will negotiate the three-dimensional race tracks in ultra high-performance aircraft at some spectacular locations around the globe. Flying at extreme low-level, pulling up to 10G's and at speeds up to 370km/h, they give their all on a track made up of knife-edge and wings-level air-gates and chicanes, pulling high G turning manoeuvres. Shaving a fraction of a second wherever possible to accumulate points and take the individual race trophies.

”The Red Bull Air Race World Championship is recognised as the ultimate low level challenge in a high performance flying machine says Nigel Lamb. ”Aircraft technology is always improving and the pilots have all developed better techniques for racing faster. So we need to cultivate a restless determination to progress, and keep on progressing on all fronts - flying aircraft, development, analysis and fitness - and continually trim those precious fractions of a second in the race for the trophy. There can be no let up.
