Schneider Trophy Races

1913-1931

Floatplanes Faster Than Landplanes
80 years ago the British won the Schneider Trophy for the third time in 1931. The result of this, under the rules, is that they got to keep it's Art Nouveau Trophy.

Following just 12 races over a span of 18 years, since 1913, the average speed rose by a factor of 7!

To put this into context, had the rate of development have continued, as witnessed during these races, then the Red Bull Racers would be today flying at speeds of 2432mph. As things stand they operate a top speed of around 260 mph.
