The Red Bull Air Race World Championship is an official world championship accredited by the World Air Sports Federation (FAI). Texas Motor Speedway welcomes back the Red Bull Air Race for the third time, hosting the final season showdown. Watch pilots battle for the World Championship podium as they fly above the 1.59-mile track.

The Red Bull Air Race features the world's best racing pilots in a pure motorsport competition that combines speed, precision and skill. Using the fastest, most agile, lightweight raceplanes, pilots hit speeds of 370kph while enduring forces of up to 12G as they navigate a low level slalom track marked by 25-metre-high, air-filled pylons.

Devised by the Red Bull sports think-tank, the initial goal was to create the most advanced aerial challenge the world had ever seen; what has evolved into the Red Bull Air Race we know today has far exceeded any original expectations. It is a visual spectacle unlike any other. A combination of high speed, low altitude and extreme maneuvering make it only accessible to the world's most exceptional pilots.

Fourteen pilots are competing in the Master Class category in eight races across the globe for the title of 2018 Red Bull Air Race World Champion. The objective is to navigate an aerial racetrack featuring air-filled pylons in the fastest possible time, incurring as few penalties as possible. Pilots can win World Championship points at each race and the pilot with the most points after the last race of the season becomes the Red Bull Air Race World Champion.

Watch the action from the grandstands or the special hangar viewing area. Tickets from $29 for adults and $10 for kids age 12 and younger.
