The Red Bull Air Race World Championship will be back in the skies with an exhilarating seven city, seven-race series in 2014. The world’s best pilots will battle in the air using the fastest, most agile and lightweight racing planes navigating 82-feet high pylons at breakneck speeds of up to 230 mph (370 km/h) while withstanding forces of up to 10G. The pilots compete for points at each Red Bull Air Race and the one who accumulates the most at the end of the season is crowned Red Bull Air Race World Champion.
This coming Red Bull Air Race is slated to be one of the most anticipated in recent times, after a three-year hiatus that will witness skilled veterans and young upstarts going head-to-head for the coveted world championship.
