Abu Dhabi, UAE - Race Day: Feb 9, 2019 - The 14 Master Class pilots reunited over the Arabian Gulf for 2019’s opening race, bringing fierce competition to the track. The hope of it being an even more heart-pounding season than last has been actualized.

After delivering the best results of his Red Bull Air Race career in 2018, American pilot Michael Goulian will take off for his 11th World Championship season at the opener in Abu Dhabi this February 8-9. Alongside him will be the team who helped achieve milestone race wins and third place overall last year, as well as an outstanding collaboration of valued race partners and personal sponsors.

I couldn’t be more proud!” Team 99’s TC Emily Mankins comments with a grin after watching her race pilot walk across the podium stage for the fourth time this year.
