BRE­ITLING Bre­itling’s New Rac­ing Ace

Revolution (Hong Kong) - - CONTENTS -

Bre­itling’s en­try in the adren­a­line-filled Red Bull Air Race Master Class in 2017 will be pi­loted by Mika Bra­geot. Hail­ing from Vil­leneuve sur Lot in France, Bra­geot was the youngest pilot to ever join the French na­tional aer­o­bat­ics team, at the time be­ing only 21 years old, but with 10 years of fly­ing ex­pe­ri­ence al­ready be­hind him. He has been on the fast track for the Master Class, hav­ing com­peted in the Chal­lenger Cup Cham­pi­onship and win­ning it in his sec­ond sea­son. That saw him en­ter a men­tor­ing pro­gram un­der the guid­ance of the leg­endary Nigel Lamb, a pilot who’s been as­so­ci­ated with Bre­itling since 1990 – Bra­geot was but three years old then! With Lamb re­tir­ing this year, Bra­geot is more than ready to take his place at the con­trols of the Bre­itling MXS-R plane, dubbed “Skyracer.” His first race this year in Abu Dhabi saw him elim­i­nated in the round of 14, but he will be more than ready for the next race in San Diego, on April 15th and 16th.
