Home to Europe's premier horseracing event, Ascot hosts the Red Bull Air Race for the third consecutive year in 2016. Situated in the beautiful wooded countryside of Berkshire, Ascot depicts an idyllic portrait of traditional British sporting heritage.
Each June, the small town welcomes thousands of spectators to Royal Ascot, the most famous event in the horseracing calendar. In 2016, as for the last two years, Ascot will witness a sport of a different pedigree and horsepower – the high speed, low altitude action of the Red Bull Air Race World Championship. The racing takes place between 13–14 August.
