The Red Bull Air Race World Championship makes a welcome return to San Diego on the 15-16 April 2017. Set on the Pacific coast of California the location provides the perfect backdrop for a race.

San Diego last hosted a Red Bull Air Race back in 2009 and proved extremely popular with the fans that have often asked when the Air Race would return, well 2017 is the answer.

Nicolas Ivanoff won in the skies above the Pacific coast back in 2009 and he’ll be looking to do it again in 2017 when the Red Bull Air Race returns.
