Got The Racing Bug??? EAA AirVenture Cup Race Applications Now Available

This Year Is The 26th Race! More Than 70 Aircraft Are Expected.

Fire 'em up, boys and girls... Applications to enter the 2024 EAA AirVenture Cup race are now available online. 

This year is the 26th race! The annual AirVenture Cup race begins at 9 a.m. CDT on July 21, when more than 70 aircraft are expected to travel the course of more than 400 nautical miles. The round-robin course starts and ends in Wausau, Wisconsin.

The race concludes a weekend of aviation activities at Wausau Downtown Airport, the starting point of the air race. Many participants travel on to EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh at the conclusion of the race.

The EAA AirVenture Cup race provides pilots and aircraft builders an opportunity to race their aircraft in a safe and fun environment, all while promoting aviation in and over the communities where the races are held. The first race in 1998 started in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, with 10 aircraft, and has grown to the major aviation event it is today, drawing thousands of spectators. The AirVenture Cup race is a timed race, with participants competing against the clock.

Aircraft and pilots are divided into categories based on their certification, landing gear configuration, and engine size. Each class has first, second and third place awards. All event activities are weather dependent.

Interested participants are encouraged to submit their application as soon as possible. On our part, we're looking for something 'unique' to race (as is my habit... having brought both a Sukhoi SU26 and a ginormous DC-3 to the truly enjoyable Sun 60/100 races a few decades back). We won NOTHING, but we sure had fun!
