Mika Brageot is taking the controls of Nigel Lamb's high-performance airplane that he already had opportunities to fly throughout 2016. But to mark this new start, the MXS-R re-named "Skyracer" has been completely repainted with an original, daring, military-inspired design that creates as much of a surprise in the air as on the ground. It flaunts a style that is a blend of "vintage" and "hard-worn" aspects, with the fuselage and wings in rust color as if the plane - albeit in the vanguard of technology - required some serious restoration. An offbeat tip of the hat that is perfectly in sync with the Breitling spirit. The presence of a large brand signature running across the plane from one wing to the other, together with an XXL winged logo under the wings, also ensures optimum visibility - in every position - during these competitions that are amongst the most spectacular in the world.
The Red Bull Air Race World Championship is the fastest motorsport series in the world. It features 14 of the worlds most experienced and talented pilots in a competition that combines speed, precision and skill.
Using the fastest, most agile and lightweight racing planes, pilots navigate a low-level aerial track made up of air-filled pylons 25m high.
The world championship is staged over eight races, in seven Countries on three Continents with the challenging tracks inflated over both water and land.
At each venue, the top nine places earn World Championship points. The pilot with the most points at the end of the Championship becomes Red Bull Air Race World Champion.
