Ascot is situated in beautiful wooded countryside, not far from London, and depicts an idyllic portrait of traditional British sporting heritage. Without doubt the centrepiece of the village is its famous racecourse, which has put Ascot on the global map and dates to the 1700s.

Each June, the village welcomes thousands of spectators to Royal Ascot, the most famous event in the horseracing calendar. Royal Ascot is Europe's premier flat race meeting and the social highlight of the British summer.

There are few sporting venues in the world that can match the history of Ascot Racecourse. This year the Red Bull Air Race pilots will test their mettle where many a great jockey has gone before, as the race takes place over the Jumps track. This course is a right-handed course and slightly in excess of one mile six furlongs. Ascot is famed for being a tough course with its triangular nature and large sweeping turns; a challenging task ahead for the competitors.
