The name says it all: air racing is a motorsport than involves racing aeroplanes over pre-determined courses. The races can be purely speed-based _ where getting to the finish line in the fastest time is all that matters. Alternatively, there are sometimes challenges that need to be completed, or a previously estimated time that the pilot has to try and match. Air racing is becoming increasingly popular as a spectator sport which is encouraging more people to get involved in flying to try it out for themselves. .
