BUDAPEST

Budapest 2017

Budapest is the spiritual home of the Red Bull Air Race and will once again be the mid-season stop on the 2018 World Championship calendar. As one of the most popular locations, the Hungarian capital always pulls in a monumental crowd to witness the racing action. In 2009, 650,000 spectators lined the banks of the Danube For this season, the pilots head to Hungary on 23-24 June.

Budapest is a true spectacle on the race calendar due to the unique start for the Master Class pilots. They begin their run into the track by flying under the iconic Chain Bridge – something that must be seen with your own eyes.

Split across the Danube, it's a city of two halves – Buda and Pest. The iconic backdrop of the neogothic Parliament building on the Pest side of the river offers fans a stunning panoramic view of the action. On the Buda side of the city, you'll find the Statue of Liberty, on top of Gellért Hill, along with the Citadel. This is why Budapest is regularly featured in the Top 10 list of World's Best Cities.
