Spielberg Qualifying Schedule Update

Gates open at 0830 on Saturday

Qualifying in Spielberg will start at 0930

Due to poor weather conditions forecast for the Styrian region of Austria on Saturday, the Race Committee has been forced to reschedule the Qualifying session, currently planned to start at 0930.

The gates will also open earlier to allow for the revised schedule, from 0830 on Saturday. This will provide spectators with the full Red Bull Air Race experience of an exciting Qualifying round.

"The forecast looks like there is a stronger possibility of rain and winds in the afternoon, giving us no choice but to fly earlier in the morning. This seems to be the only foreseeable window of flying. Qualifying is an essential part of the rules and regulations and plays a pivotal role within the competition format," said Race Director Steve Jones.
