Budapest is the spiritual home of the Red Bull Air Race and will once again be the fourth stop on the 2017 World Championship calendar. As one of the most popular stops, the Hungarian capital always pulls in a monumental crowd to witness the racing action. 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 01-02 July.

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.

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.

How can I buy a ticket for the Red Bull Air Race?

In general, tickets can always be bought online at www.redbullairrace.com. Please choose the stop you are interested in and click on the "buy tickets" button. You will be connected directly to the corresponding web shop where you can purchase your tickets as well as find information regarding the various ticket options.

At some stops it is also possible to purchase tickets through a retail outlet and usually on-site from one of the box offices which are operational shortly before the venue opens until the end of the scheduled event. For more information regarding the latter please also check the event specific FAQ section in the event tab.

How much is a ticket for the Red Bull Air Race?

Ticket prices and ticket categories vary slightly at each event. The venues and local conditions are different for each race which causes the ticket categories and services included to differ across the season. We recommend you check the event(s) you are interested in by following the "buy tickets" button into the corresponding web shop(s).

Are children discounts available?

Discounted rates for children up to certain ages are available for each stop but under slightly varying conditions for each ticket category. This is why we would like to ask you to check the special event FAQs for further information.

How do I get my tickets?

How you receive your tickets depends on the delivery method selected during the booking process. Most of the tickets are bought online and therefore mainly distributed per email as Print@Home ticket. We do however also offer the opportunity to book hard copy tickets with some our ticket partners. Please check directly with the respective ticket partner.

Bookings made close to the event that do not allow delivery due to time limitations will be available for collection at a will call desk on-site.

Do I have to print my Print@Home tickets?

Please print a copy of your Print@Home ticket and bring it to the event. The printed field containing the barcode on the ticket must be well printed since there will be electronic admission control on-site. That way we can guarantee that the scanner will be able to read the barcode on the ticket which will grant entry to the event premise.

Can I return the tickets?

Unfortunately, the ticket holder acknowledges within the Terms and Conditions that there is no right of cancellation or refund once the ticket has been purchased. Tickets received for the event can therefore be neither ex-changed nor returned. The same applies if the date or location of the event has to be changed for any reason. In this case the ticket entitles the event attendee to also attend the event at an alternative date or at the alternative location.

What happens if the event is cancelled?

In the unlikely event of a cancellation or abandonment full details of procedures will be posted on the websites and communicated to fans on the big screens and via the sound system on location. If in doubt, please visit redbullairrace.com. Bad weather such as rain does not automatically mean that the race will be cancelled. Race planes can fly in the rain therefore please bring appropriate clothing.

What can I bring to the event?

The following items are allowed:
Baby food
Personal medicine
Small umbrellas
Picnic blankets and seat pads

The following items may not be brought inside the venue during any Red Bull Air Race event:
Food, Beverages & Drugs

Are cameras allowed into the venue?

Cameras are allowed on – site but only for personal use. Professional or media photography must be registered with our communications department: media@redbullairace.com

Is parking available at the venue/included in the ticket?

Unfortunately, we are not able to confirm that parking will be available at each venue due to space limitations at some of the races on the calendar. We therefore kindly ask you to visit the event page where the corresponding FAQs are shown.

Is there a special dress code to follow for hospitality guests?

Whilst we encourage hospitality guests to wear smart-casual clothing and kindly ask not to wear sports and beach attire, no formal dress codes apply for the general admission areas.

When does the event start?

The opening hours vary slightly from race to race so we kindly ask each visitor to check the corresponding event page for the schedule and opening hours.
