In September come to Oporto to watch the Red Bull Air Race – the world's most exciting air race!
If you like competitions that test pilots' aeronautics skills don't miss the Red Bull Air Race world circuit over the River Douro, on 2-3 September, that returns to Portugal for the first time since 2009.
This competition consists of a slalom race - where the world's most skilful pilots manoeuvre around obstacles in flights that almost touch the ground and trace tight circles. In addition to great speed, this competition also requires minute precision and dexterity, since the smallest error can jeopardize the performance.
In addition to the city of Oporto (whose historic center is a World Heritage site), the air race world circuit will be held in other parts of the globe, including Abu Dhabi, San Diego, Chiba, Budapest, Kazan, Lausitz and Indianapolis.
