Redbull Air Race 2017

Enter to win tickets to the Redbull Air Race!

WHEN: Sunday, Oct. 15, 2017

WHERE: Indianapolis Motor Speedway

Overview- The best pilots on Earth will compete for 2017 titles in the second annual Red Bull Air Race World Championship event at IMS. The Speedway is hosting the season finale for the world’s most prestigious air race series for the first time after a successful inaugural event in 2016. Pilots from many nations will race in two classes—the Master Class and the Challenger Class—at low altitude in small, nimble, single-engine planes that reach speeds of230 mph on a course over the infield of the world-famous IMS oval. Pilots practice, qualify and race solo, against the clock, through a course marked by a series of inflatable Air Gates, each 82 feet tall. Various time penalties are levied for infractions, which include hitting an Air Gate. Single-elimination rounds of three laps each reduce the field to four competitors, who then take on the course again for three laps solo to determine the winner. The quickest pilot from the “Final Four” is the winner. IMS becomes a functioning airport during this event, as competitors take off and land on the backstraight of the road course in the infield.

Tickets- Reserved seats for Sunday range from $45-75, depending on location and date purchased. General admission is $20 on Saturday and $35-40 on Sunday, depending on date purchased. Kids 15 and under are free in General Admission areas when accompanied by a General Admission ticketed adult. Two-day event passes and Hangar Viewing Area passes also are available. Tickets are available now at and at the IMS Ticket Office.

Pilots of Interest- There are two American pilots in the elite Master Class, two-time series champion

• Kirby Chambliss of Arizona and Michael Goulian of Massachusetts. Chambliss leads the Master Class standings by one point with three races remaining this season. You may remember him from last year’s epic stunt video with Indy 500 100th Running champion Alexander Rossi!

• Louisiana native Kevin Coleman is the sole American pilot in the Challenger Class. He is fourth in the Challenger Class standings with three races remaining.• Melanie Astles of France is the only female competitor in the series, racing in the Challenger Class. She finished second in 2016 at IMS in the Challenger Class.
