250+ MPH Racing Action!!!

The Unlimited Scale Racing Association (USRA) 2018 Race of Champions will prove once again how exciting giant-scale pylon racing can be, with fast action racing and speeds that routinely exceed that of NASCAR and Formula One motor sports. Insanely fast planes (in Unlimited, running on alcohol-fueled 150cc-200cc engines) with straight pipe exhausts. Five of those planes competing in a heat or trophy race is not too far off from the roar of an F/A 18 taking off with an afterburner. Fast planes, great camaraderie and cutting edge innovation.

Once again held this year at California City Airport on October 11-14, the Race of Champions is a test of skills and endurance as pilots keep their airplanes in the running over three days, building to the winner take all championship trophy races held on the final day.

With over $8,000 in prizes and cash purses at stake, pilots and crew compete fiercely, but do whatever it takes to help each other out in the pits to keep all the planes up and running. The heat races leading up to each class’ trophy race are great to watch as each pilot is seeking points to qualify for the trophy races.

Sponsors include APC Propellers, Desert Aircraft, Futaba, Horizon Hobby, Team Extra Air Racing and Tru-Turn.

USRA giant scale air racing is patterned after the Reno National Championship Air Races as a way to bring the excitement, sound, color and history of air racing up close to the public and the world of radio control enthusiasts. Since its inception, giant scale air racing has evolved steadily into a sport where speed and technology advancements know no bounds. Speeds reaching well in excess of 250 miles per hour make giant scale air racing one of the fastest motor sports in the world!
