From the Lausitzring to Indianapolis Motor Speedway

The 2017 Red Bull Air Race season comes to an end in Indianapolis. As Official Logistics Partner, DHL has transported the equipment used in this breathtaking race series from continent to continent and from race venue to race venue, including Abu Dhabi, San Diego and Budapest.

The final leg of the itinerary takes the show from the Lausitzring to Indianapolis. First of all, DHL will transport the aircraft over a distance of 522 kilometers by truck to Frankfurt, from where they will continue by air over a distance of 7,037 kilometers to Indianapolis. From the airport, there is a short journey by road of 20 kilometers to the racetrack.

The DHL Fastest Lap Award was first presented in 2007  in Formula 1. Since 2016, the award has also been made in the Red Bull Air Race. The award is won by the pilot with the fastest time over one single lap on qualifying day. Our winner will present the trophy to the pilot with the most DHL fastest laps  after the last qualifying session of the season.
