In 2017 Hamilton becomes Official Timekeeper of the Red Bull Air Race World Championship.
Featuring 14 of the best race pilots, among which Nicolas Ivanoff, the brand ambassador since 2005, this pure motorsport competition is a visual spectacle unlike any other, combining speed, precision and skill. Using the fastest, most agile and lightweight racing planes, pilots navigate a low-level aerial track made of 25 meters-high air-filled pylons.
14 pilots are competing in the Master Class category in eight races across the globe for the title of Red Bull Air Race World Champion. The Challenger Cup, with 9 pilots, offers young talents the chance to develop their low-altitude flying skills and to experience the thrills of the sport.
The 2017 race calendar will take place in eight cities around the world starting with its first stop in Abu Dhabi on February 10-11, a celebratory event marking the diamond 75th Red Bull Air Race.
Aviation, skill and precision are also part of the Hamilton brand. This partnership will strengthen Hamilton’s presence in the aerobatics world, in addition to its rich aviation heritage and collaborations with international airshows and squadrons.
A special edition watch will be released for the occasion, the Khaki Air Race, available in two versions: a Team Hamilton model with orange and black dial and special case back printing to enhance Hamilton and Nicolas Ivanoff strong relationship.
The brand will also launch an official timekeeper model with blue and grey dial with a red second hand honoring Red Bull Air Race colors and different case back printing.
Both versions have a stainless steel case in either 38 or 42mm size, with a choice of black leather strap or stainless steel bracelet.
