The official part of the competition is scheduled for 12 and 13 April, and the training session will be held on 11 April 2014. For the first time in its history, the new European series brings this fastest aviation competition to Croatia, Rovinj.

The race track in Rovinj will extend along the northern coast of the town, in the immediate vicinity of the old town center, thus ensuring the race a spectacular background. Thousands of visitors will have a chance to experience yet unparalleled air spectacle in Croatia. The organizers are announcing that, along with Britain’s Paul Bonhomme who will be looking to win his third consecutive championship title this year, there will be 11 other world’s top pilots from nine other countries fighting for the title. The novelty introduced in the program by the organizers is the Challenger Cup Race. Pilots participating in this race aim to advance to a higher level and enter a list of Red Bull Air Race World Championship pilots.
