Wannabe air races around the world can now get their Red Bull Air Race fix usingtheir smartphones and tablets with the launch of the official mobile game. This is available for free download through Apple’s App Store and Google Play.

If you’ve always wanted to fly the gravity-defying racetracks that the world’s best pilots are faced with, now is the time to test your skills. You can race against 23 exceptional pilots from the Master Class and Challenger Cup in this fast and furious arcade-style game, pulling up to 10G and at speeds of up to 370kph… all from the comfort of your armchair.

As you fly through the 25 metre high pylons, you can get a taste of the tight turns to see how you rate against your online rivals.

For an even greater challenge, you can take part in the global Tournament mode, where you’ll can compete against players from all over the world.
