The league encourages all to send her words of encouragement to her current address -

The Sport Air Racing League exists to promote open course air racing for experimental, production and vintage military aircraft.

This site is dedicated to pilots who just want to fly fast.
If we happen to be 500 feet off the deck with everything forward and racing against the clock, all the better!
It's been said that "It's a big country - you need a fast airplane", and we agree!
We are folks who will spend enormous amounts of time and outrageous amounts of money to make our aircraft move along at a quicker pace... and how better to flight-test those go-fast mods than to RACE!

Sport Air Racing League News: Mike Thompson Announces His Retirement From Chairman Position


Mike Thomspon, founder and Chairman of the league has announced his retirement. Mike will not be leaving us altogether, as he will remain as advisor to the league and continue to join us at the races as an avid racer.

SARL owes a lot to Mike for founding the league, setting up the details of the classes and rules, keeping us safe at the races, building the trophies, and all the time and effort he, Kit and his family and friends have put into making it work. The league will forever be in your gratitude Mike! See you at the races!

Patricia Purcell is taking over as the SARL Chairman. The league would like to thank Pat for stepping up and keeping cross country racing, SARL style, moving forward!
