Home to Europe's premier horseracing event, Ascot hosts the Red Bull Air Race for the third consecutive year in 2016. Situated in the beautiful wooded countryside of Berkshire, Ascot depicts an idyllic portrait of traditional British sporting heritage.

Each June, the small town welcomes thousands of spectators to Royal Ascot, the most famous event in the horseracing calendar. In 2016, as for the last two years, Ascot will witness a sport of a different pedigree and horsepower – the high speed, low altitude action of the Red Bull Air Race World Championship. The racing takes place between 13–14 August.

There are few sporting venues in the world that can match the history and lineage of Ascot Racecourse. For the third consecutive year, the Red Bull Air Race pilots will test their mettle where many a great jockey has gone before, as the race takes place over the Jumps track. The course measures at just over one mile (six furlongs) and is one of the few tracks to feature the pilots taking off right in front of the crowd. Ascot is famed for being a tough course with its triangular dimensions and large sweeping turns... always a challenging task for the pilots.
