For the first time ever, the home of the Indianapolis 500—the world’s biggest single-day sporting event—hosted the Red Bull Air Race. This past weekend, more than 62,000 fans enjoyed the event at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where the famous track was transformed into an airfield, with planes taking off and navigating through a highly technical course at high speeds and low altitudes.
German pilot Matthias Dolderer won the inaugural Indy race, clinching his first World Championship. Englishman and 2014 World Champion Nigel Lamb finished second, while Canadian Pete McLeod earned third-place honors. U.S. pilots Michael Goulian and Kirby Chambliss finished 10th and 14th, respectively.
The season finale of the 2016 Red Bull Air Race World Championship will be held at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on October 15-16, 2016.
