Known as one of the 12 major cities in Japan, Chiba City has a population of approximately 1 million people, making up a fifth of Chiba Prefecture's population.

Originally renowned for its steel industry, this bustling city is now home to the growing field of international information services, biotechnology and medical science. But it's far from a concrete jungle... Known as the 'City of Flowers', Chiba City is blessed with an abundance of nature, with traditional Japanese gardens and parks peppering the landscape and creating a wonderful contrast between old and new.

It is here that Chiba City and the Red Bull Air Race strike a chord. The Red Bull Air Race's use of traditional aviation design combined with intuitive, state-of-the-art technology makes for a beautiful synergy of modern day advancements and golden age finesse.
