Ticketholders will have the chance to see the best pilots utilise their skills to manoeuvre their aircrafts through a low-aerial track comprising 25-metre high air-filled pylons, and they can also expect entertainment across the weekend.

The 2016 series will span seven countries and eight races. It will kick off on 11-12 March in Abu Dhabi, followed by Spielberg, Austria from 23-24 April.

Other locations the race is set to visit include Japan, Hungary and Germany, and finally America, where the event will culminate in Las Vegas on the 15-16 October.

Red Bull Racing has teamed up with Puma to create the Puma x Red Bull Racing Lifestyle collection, which was recently unveiled during a special event at the Old Truman Brewery in London.
