The new season of the Sport Air Racing League — billed as “racing for the rest of us” — will take off April 2, 2022, with four races planned for the year.
Races are open to all pilots flying propeller driven factory and experimental aircraft. There is a class for all types of aircraft, according to organizers.
All flying is normal VFR cross country in strict adherence to all FARs, organizers add.
The first race of the season is the 2022 Sunrise Cross Country Challenge at Kaolin Field (KOKZ) in Georgia. This race has been the first event of the season for several years. Proceeds go to the local charity FIRST LOVE KIDS. Entries are open and the race course set.
The last race of the season is the Sport Air Racing League Summit II and Ozark Classic Air Race, slated for Aug. 26-29 at M. Graham Clark Downtown Airport (KPLK) in Branson, Missouri.
The 2022 AirVenture Cup Race is also a go this year, slated for July 24. You can learn more about this race at AirVentureCupRace.com.
