Matthias Dolderer – 2016 Red Bull Air Race World Champion

“It’s amazing. We worked really hard for it and the dream came true. There are so many emotions it’s hard to keep them under control. Thanks to my family, the fans, everyone here in Indianapolis, and my team – I have the best team in the world.”

Jim DiMatteo – Race Director, Red Bull Air Race

“From my perspective, the Indianapolis Red Bull Air Race was a huge success from all sides.  We had a safe and competitive race at one of the most historic #racing venues in the world.  Over 62,000 fans saw, for the first time in history, the Brickyard hosting an Air Race within the confines of the track.  I heard from many spectators that they truly were amazed at the high speed dynamic air race and the competitive nature of the #event.  IMS has such a wonderful history of #racing, for Red Bull Air Race, it was truly an honor to be part of this iconic venue.  Smoke On!!”  

Doug Boles – President, Indianapolis Motor Speedway

“The #redbullairraceworldchampionship brought a full weekend of exciting motorsports #competition to the #indianapolismotorspeedway. Our fans who packed our grandstands were impressed by the by the skill, speed and technical precision of the pilots and planes! IMS could not be happier to be home to the Red Bull Air Race and we’re excited to see a new generation of pilots making even more history at the very same facility where the Wright Brothers once flew and one of the first altitude records was broken.”

Alexander Rossi – 2016 Indianapolis 500 winner

 “I’m new to the Red Bull Air Race, but it has already blown my mind. The aspects that strike me as similar to auto #racing are the precision and competitiveness,” Rossi comments. “I’ve gotten to know Kirby and his team a bit, and he’s taken me up in his two-seater, so I’ll be crossing my fingers for him. But the #indianapolismotorspeedway is very special and it’s an honor to race at a track with so much history and heritage – I hope all the pilots enjoy it.”

Nick Price - Three-time golf Major champion

“I’ve always loved flying, and when I heard Nige (Nigel Lamb) say he was going to retire soon, I said, ‘I’m definitely coming!’ I watch the Red Bull Air Races on TV, but this whole experience to be here is great fun, and I hope Nigel wins it!”

David Boudia - Four-time Olympic medalist

 “I think what's cool about Indianapolis is we try to pride ourselves on being the sports capital of the world, and so whether it’s hosting Olympic Trials for diving, or the Indianapolis 500 or now the Red Bull Air Race, it’s cool to be able to have the city come together around so many different types of sporting events. That’s what makes Indy so special – we love our sports.”

Matt Brabham – IndyCar driver

“The #indianapolismotorspeedway means everything to me, and the Indianapolis 500 – with all the giants who have competed in it – it’s one of the coolest races in the world. To have the Red Bull Air Race here and the pilots flying around the speedway may be a little bit different than the race cars, but it’s pretty special.”
