Greetings Race Nuts!
Welcome to The Indy Air Race 2012! Special thanks to our sponsors, Aerodine Composites, Montgomery Aviation, Extend-a-Suites, and the Hendricks County Aviation Association.
It’s been said that “It’s a big country – you need a fast airplane,” and we agree!
The Sport Air Racing League exists to promote open course air racing for experimental and production aircraft. If we happen to be 500 feet off the deck with everything forward and racing against the clock, all the better!
With the increasing proliferation of high performance experimental aircraft comes a need for a racing league for experimental pilot/owners who do not have the deep pockets necessary to race at Reno, even in the Sport Class. And we're not leaving out the production classes. Every race nut is welcome.
A safe racing environment is made accessible to people without specific racing experience or training by starting the racers at timed intervals, in a fastest-first starting order.
Races in this league are 100 to 400 miles in length and are primarily a proving ground for aircraft performance enhancements in power plant and aerodynamic/configuration.
Safety is stressed and participation by anyone with a valid pilot’s license and an airworthy aircraft is encouraged.
For the second consecutive year, the Sport Air Racing League is proud to announce
The Indy Air Race
