It's a first outing for the Red Bull Air Race in Indiana, USA, with the state capital Indianapolis set to experience the high-speed, low-altitude racing at the heart of the World Championship. Home to the world's biggest single-day sporting event – the historic Indianapolis 500 – and host to the likes of Formula One and NASCAR, the city is primed and more than ready for even more full-throttle, no-holds-barred racing.

The pilots will battle for World Championship points in the racetrack above the world's first purpose-built motor speedway, in an aerial racetrack designed to push them to their limits. In the first of two US-based stops in 2016, fans can see the adrenaline-packed action unfold above the Indianapolis Motor Speedway when the Red Bull Air Race touches down in Indianapolis on 1-2 October.

Perhaps one of the world's most famous motorsports venues, since 1909 the Indianapolis Motor Speedway has hosted breathtaking racing action, and to this day is considered a premier motorsports racing venue.

Since before the first IndyCars raced in the iconic Indianapolis 500 in 1911, fans have flocked to the oval speedway. The four-corner speedway's layout remains largely unchanged since the early 20th century and is now a National Historic Landmark.

Relatively flat by US standards, the speedway features four quarter-mile (400m) turns, and two straightaways at 5⁄8 mile each (1,000 m), and two 1⁄8-mile (200 m) short chutes.
