Budapest ist die spirituelle Heimat des Red Bull Air Race und 2018 erneut Saisonmittelpunkt im WM-Kalender. Als eine der beliebtesten Locations lockt die ungarische Hauptstadt zum wiederholten Male unzählige Fans an die Donau. 2009 tummelten sich 650.000 Zuschauer am Ufer der Donau. In dieser Saison werden die Piloten am 23./24. Juni in Budapest um WM-Punkte fliegen.

Budapest ist aufgrund des einzigartigen Starts der Master Class Piloten ein wahres Spektakel im Rennkalender. Sie starten in den Track, indem sie unter der berühmten Kettenbrücke hindurch fliegen – ein Spektakel, das man mit den eigenen Augen gesehen haben muss.

Die Donau trennt die Stadt in zwei Teile – Buda und Pest. Die ikonische Kulisse mit dem neogotischen Parlamentsgebäude auf der Seite von Pest bietet den Fans einen wundersvollen Panoramablick auf die Action. Auf der Seite von Buda findet man neben der Zitadelle die Freiheitsstatue auf der Spitze des Gellért Hills. Das ist der Grund, warum Budapest regelmäßig in der Liste der weltweit beliebtesten Städte zu finden ist.
