The Red Bull Air Race World Championship touches down once again in Japan, in the sprawling metropolis of Chiba City. Chiba is renowned as the birthplace of civil aviation in Japan and is famed for its samurai and warrior heritage.

Known as the City of Flowers, Chiba is blessed with an abundance of nature, with traditional Japanese gardens and parks peppering the landscape and creating wonderful contrast between old and new.

Fans witnessed home favourite Yoshihide Muroya fight for an amazing win in 2016 and the local hero will be hoping to repeat that achievement in 2017. The race takes place at Makuhari, Japan's longest artificial beach, between 03-04 June.
