According to the tour's Web site, Detroit’s rich knowledge in the automotive and aviation industries as well as its abundance of sports fans make it an ideal stop for the Red Bull Air Race World Series.
The city also shares an international border with Canada along the Detroit River. The Detroit race May 31-June 1, 2008 was the first time the Red Bull Air Race took place between two countries at the same time, making world history for the Series and for the cities of Detroit and Windsor, Ontario.
