Red Bull air race. Free tickets for local residents

I Applied for these tickets last year and received 4 great seats in the grandstand. You need to live in the London boroughs of Greenwich, Newham or Tower Hamlets. You can request up to 6 tickets. It was an excellent day out last year.

If you are a resident of one of the local affected boroughs (Greenwich, Newham or Tower Hamlets) Just fill in the necessary information and click to submit your entry and that?it! You will get a confirmation screen as soon as you click send we will email you shortly after the ballot closes on Sunday 20th July to let you know if you have been drawn from the ballot.

Q: How many tickets can I request and how many will I receive if my entry is drawn?
A: You can request up to six tickets for this event and whatever number you request, you will receive if you are drawn from the ballot. So if you request four tickets and you are drawn, you will receive four tickets.

Q: What tickets will I receive?
A: All tickets for local residents are located in standing area one (in front of The O2.) The ballot is random and entrants will receive ticket for either the Qualifying Day (Saturday 2nd August 2008) or Race Day (Sunday 3rd August 2008.) Tickets are not interchangeable; whichever ticket you are drawn to receive cannot be swapped over to the other day.

Q: What happens when the ballot closes?
A: As soon as the ballot closes, we will scrutinise the database to ensure that only local resident addresses are included (we will automatically remove any addresses that do not fall within one of the three affected boroughs.) We will then draw ticket holders and notify them by email. We will also notify any ballot entrants who were not drawn. Ticket holders will then have their tickets posted out to them at the address they submitted when entering the ballot. It will not be possible to send tickets to alternative addresses as this may result in people who are not genuinely local residents of Greenwich, Newham or Tower Hamlets receiving these free tickets.


voted hot as gr8 if u can get em


if you dont live in one of the areas - click the link below to buy them instead!


Thanks - will apply, it was a great day out last year

Slight hump, they have changed the location to the 02 this year for these tickets! Was at Silvertown last year
3 Kids + = DLR okay(ish)
3 Kids + Jubilee Line = not so great, and none of the lifts ever work :x

Thanks to the OP though

Anyone kind enough who lives there, can you please get me 2 tickets please.

I REALLY REALLY want to go, but cant even dare to afford their prices.. :oops:

Yikes, £25 to stand in front of the dome to watch it? Think I'll pass...

If you live in the local area, surely you could just stick your head out the window and watch it anyway?


Not a deal as this is the usual inflated price. This is an offer that provides "free" tickets to selected people and so belongs in the freebies section. Mod to move to Freebies section.

Applied...voted hot

If anyone in the area can apply & doesnt want to go, I would be very happy if I can get them please!! :thumbsup:

Live in Newham, applied for 6 lets see what happens

im just going to go to the office (citigroup building) and see it from there .... for free !!

Dear Local Resident,

Demand for Red Bull Air Race London Local Resident free tickets has been unprecedented and as a result it hasn’t been possible to give them to every person who entered the ballot. Sadly, your application was not drawn and therefore it won’t be possible to send you any free tickets.

However, a few tickets for the London race are still available to purchase at [url]www.redbullairrace.com[/url] and the price of children’s grandstand tickets on Qualifying Day are lower this year to encourage families to bring their children to experience the Red Bull Air Race in the flesh. These tickets are available for 6-15 year olds so why not make a family day out of it?

Ticket prices start from:

* £15 on Qualifying Day (£10 for children’s standing tickets)
* £25 on Race Day (£20 for children’s standing tickets)

We are sorry that you were not lucky enough to be drawn from the ballot but still hope to see you at the Red Bull Air Race in London over the weekend of 2nd/3rd August!

Best wishes
Nichola Spencer
Red Bull Air Race UK Team
