Spielberg Qualification Cancelled

Posted on: 5th Sep 2015

Constant poor weather conditions, including heavy rain and low clouds have forced the Race Committee to cancel the Qualifying round of Red Bull Air Race in Spielberg, Austria. According to the official rules, the start list of the Round of 14 on Sunday will be based on the current World Championship rankings.


After consultation with our weather experts, we can see there is no possibility of holding a Qualifying round in Spielberg today. We have to balance many factors when deciding whether to run a race session in the prevailing weather conditions and this was just not possible today.“ says Race Director Steve Jones. 


The schedule for the race on Sunday will continue as planned.
