Description

The Danube is just a race track, the famous bridges of Budapest just mere obstacles and the stunning Hungarian Parliament a backdrop for the spectacular Hungarian leg of the Red Bull Air Race World Championship. The speediest and most agile planes fly through the skies of cities across the world as part of the Red Bull Air Race World Championship. These magical men in their flying machines wow crowds as they shoot through aerial tracks of air-filled pylons at speeds of up to 370 km/h (230 mph). It's not all about speed however, these daredevil pilots must pass these 'air gates' in the correct position (either knife or level flying) or they'll be penalised. It truly is one of the world's most spectator friendly events, as cities are transformed into giant play things for these high-flying maestros. Points are gathered during the races as the pilots compete to be crowned Red Bull Air Race World Champion come the season's end.
