Red Bull Air Race to be held in Zamárdi this July

The Red Bull Air Race will be held over Lake Balaton in Zamárdi this July

The Red Bull Air Race will be held over Lake Balaton in Zamárdi this July, organizers have confirmed.

Mayor István Tarlós recently said Budapest would not issue a permit for the race, planned for July 12-14th of this year, because of “inadequate conditions” following complaints by locals and safety fears.

According to reports, local organizer Hungaroring Sport quickly searched for an alternative venue and secured a part of Lake Balaton in Zamárdi.

Zamárdi mayor Gyula Csakovics said visitors could watch the race from Zamárdi’s 3km-long beach, while pilots could use nearby airports in Sármellék, Siófok or Szentkirályszabadja.
