The Red Bull Air Races take place all around the world, from London, to Budapest, to Abu Dhabi, and yes, to America’s finest city, San Diego! The races will take place on May 3rd and 4th, 2008, over the San Diego Bay, between Embarcadero Park and Coronado Island. You do not want to miss this!!
The idea of the Red Bull Air Race came in 2001. The idea was a race that would focus not just on speed, but also on precision and skill, giving the world’s best pilots an opportunity to challenge each other. The first race took place in 2003, in Austria, and next was Budapest. It was not until 2005 when the first official ‘Red Bull Air Race World Series’ was launched. There were a total of ten pilots competing in seven races around the globe. This year, twelve pilots will compete in ten different cities.
The races feature the world’s best pilots in a motor sports competition based on speed, precision and skill. You are guaranteed to be stunned and amazed at the jaw-dropping action and stunts. The race sort of moves along in a bracket format, with qualifying rounds to begin with, all the way to finals and a winner.
Box office ticket prices range from $20-$35 (the 2-day ticket is the best deal). For ticketing information, click here.
