RED BULL AIR RACE PORTO
Porto hosted the Red Bull Air Race from 2007 through to 2009. The race proved hugely popular with the fans who lined the Douro River to watch the competitors. The action returns to the banks of the Douro River on 2 and 3 September. The Porto Race is the sixth and third-last stage of the calendar this year.
The race has always held significance in the Red Bull Air Race World Championship. Current Race Director, Steve Jones won there in 2007 and when Hannes Arch won there in 2008 he went on to win the World Championship. In 2009 Paul Bonhomme won in Porto and took the title.
