Red Bull Air Race In Budapest, 1 - 2 July
Budapest is the spiritual home of the Red Bull Air Race, and will once again be part of the 2017 World Championship calendar. As one of the most popular stops, the Hungarian capital always pulls in a monumental crowd to witness the action. 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.

In 2009, 650,000 spectators lined the banks of the Danube, and when the city earned a spot in the 2015 race season, fans returned in their thousands once again. For this season, it'll be a summertime spectacle as the pilots head to Hungary on 1-2 July.

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.

Date and tme: 1 July at 10:00 to 2 July at 18:00
