On 20 August there will be a race in the centre of Budapest - above
the Danube, right in front of the parliament building and in front of
hundreds of thousands of fans.

The site features also a webbased flight simulator game providing an
authentic impression visualizing air racing pilots cockpit views. Done
with virtools (only PC) - based on real topographic 3D data it allows
you to fly maps of Kemble (UK), Budapest City and Reno (US)

By taking part at the competition and a superfinal for overall victory
and the title of the Red Bull Air Race Online Champ, the prize for the
