The 13th annual AirVenture Cup Race will be held on Sunday July 24.
The racecourse will begin in Mitchell South Dakota and run 500 miles
back to the finish line at Montecello WI.
A full weekend of fun and excitement is scheduled beginning on Friday
with a media event and a pre-race party. On Saturday, the pit area is
open to the public. It’s a great opportunity to share the love of
aviation and inspire new pilots. Two years ago at Mitchell (we rotate
between there and Dayton every other year) there were over 1500 people
in attendance to look at the planes and see use fly. It has become a
mini airshow in itself.
Classes range from Unlimited racers that top 350+mph on the racecourse
down to a new Sportsman Light class. The three classes that most of
our airplanes will fit into are as follows:
Any Experimental Category aircraft with an engine displacement of 240
cubic inches or less.
Any Experimental Category aircraft powered by a VW or Corvair engine
converted for aircraft use.
Sportsman Light Class
Any Experimental Category aircraft meeting the rules of the Light
