This spectacular acrobatic flying competition attracts fans from all over the world. The race takes place above the Danube, in the heart of the city, between Elizabeth and Margaret Bridges.
Now retired, but among the competing pilots used to be Hungary’s very own Peter Besenyei, an expert aviator, widely admired for his smooth yet aggressive style of flying and often referred to as the 'Godfather of the air race'. In 2009 he was the only pilot without a single pylon hit.
In 2016, the Red Bull Air Race will be held on July 16th & 17th.
