Red Bull Pull Funding From Air Race World Championships

With three races remaining in 2019, Red Bull has decided not to continue the Red Bull Air Race World Championship beyond the 2019 season.

There have been more than 90 races since Red Bull Air Race began in 2003, giving the world’s most exceptional pilots the opportunity to compete in high speed flying at low altitude with extreme maneuvers.

However, despite seeking to provide sports entertainment of the highest quality, the series did not attract the level of outside interest that other global Red Bull events have.

The remaining races this year are Kazan, Russia, 15-16 June; Lake Balaton, Hungary, 13-14 July and Chiba, Japan, 7-8 September.
