    Red Bull Air Race NY - June 19-20, Tickets On Sale Now

    Looks like ticketing is now available. Heats are on Sat and races are on Sunday.

    We're game for Sunday, just don't now what seats yet :)

    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    Just to clarify, Mario is talking about June 19th and 20th, not this coming weekend.

    For those who cannot make it, NYCA will have full media coverage!

    So I gather the seating is for Liberty State Park?
    Where would good non-ticket locations be to watch the aircraft? Battery Park City area?

    redbullairrace.com

    Tickets run the gamut, from $35 to over 1295 per person.

    Nice thing is though that kids under 6 are free :D

    I'll stick with the $30 tix :borat: Or I might just view from another area.

    I remember reading somewhere on the Red Bull site that there wouldn't be good views of the race from Manhattan (not without binoculars anyway). Judging from this map it looks like the best sightlines are on the Jersey side:

    FYI- I'm still hoping to hear some info soon on a possible spectator boat to view the race from also. :borat:
    When I hear any news I'll post the info here also !!

    Found some info on boat viewing:

    http://www.nywaterway.com/RedBullAirRace.aspx

    Judging from the map, I'm guessing the coast guard will be corralling boats just southeast of Ellis Island. Might get good shots of planes coming off the finish line, but maybe not great views of the race itself.

    Also, found on this "Harbor Events" page (http://www.iboatnyharbor.com/Harbor%20Events.htm):

    June 17: Red Bull Air Race - Training Day 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
    It seems as if training days are usually held the Thursday and Friday before the race, so it the park isn't closed up it might be a good opportunity for crowd-free viewing.
    Shoot first, ask questions later.

    I think FoxSports is broadcasting this live?

    I think I'm going to take the LIRR to Penn, jump on the PATH on 33rd & 6th & get off at Liberty State Park.

    If I go on Sat, I can get GA tickets for $30.

    Every other way either seems to require being set up by 8am, or spending a ton of money. Both are not an option for me, especially with Quonset coming up 2 weeks after.

    Dan,
    Thanks for the info, but unfortunately, I just called NY Waterways with more questions
    about their spectator boat for the Red Bull Air Race, and they said they've decided NOT
    to have the special boat for the race now. What a Bummer, because it sounded really GREAT !!! :(
