The last times the skies of the Lausitzring in Germany saw Red Bull Air Race planes soaring overhead, it was in 2010. But to the delight of thousands of motorsports fans, Air Race returns to the Lausitzring this weekend, September 3–4.

The event itself is exciting enough, but the fact that the current Air race World Championship leader is German pilot Matthias Dolderer only makes things more exhilarating. The form pilot of 2016 returns to his home skies with a substantial 18 point lead in the series standings and is hungry to win on home soil.

Despite his advantage, Dolderer can't let his guard down however as his main closest title rival, Hannes Arch, is incredibly motivated to defend his previous German win from 2010, and a host of rival pilots also have a realisitic chance of flying to victory. Whoever stands on top of the podiumin Germany on Sunday evening will deserve it, that's guaranteed.

Want to be part of this exhilarating action? Tune in to watch Red Bull Air Race live this weekend, September 3–4 on the Red Bull Air Race website and Red Bull TV.
