Get ready for the return of Red Bull Air Race World Championship! For the fourth consecutive year, Hartzell will be the 2017 propeller technical partner of the Red Bull Air Race. We’ll be providing our three-blade structural composite propeller known as “The Claw,” carbon fiber composite spinners, and lightweight governors to every Red Bull Air Race team.
This year you can catch all of the action for the first race of the season live on NBC sports. Both the Qualifying Day on Friday, February 10th and Race Day on February 11th will be broadcast. The Qualifying round starts streaming on the 10th at 7am EST, and you can watch the race itself on the 11th at 9:30pm EST.
We’ll also have personnel in place at the event to provide complete propeller technical support and maintenance services for all of the racing teams. Once again, we’re proud to co-sponsor ace pilot Michael Goulian’s entry into the Championship. Goulian is one of only a handful of active Red Bull Air Race pilots to have won a race. He took home the championship title in Budapest in 2009.
