Announcing Bigatmo as Official Eyewear Partner of Air Race 1
We are absolutely delighted to announce that Bigatmo is the Official Eyewear Partner of the new and exciting Air Race 1 world series of 2015.
Air Race 1 is pure motorsport at its fastest. It is a thrilling test of pilot skill in a class known as formula one air racing.
8 airplanes race directly against each other at speeds of 450kph, together on a race circuit just 2km end to end. Top pilots from around the world compete on the tight circuit just 10 meters above the ground, all easily visible to thousands of live spectators and broadcast on global media. The first aircraft to cross the finish line after eight laps wins!
Bigatmo sunglasses have been designed with the most challenging cockpit environments in mind, and we are very much looking forward to providing Air Race 1 pilots with our sunglasses and helping them gain the competitive edge in a sport where precision and focus is everything.
The race planes, referred to in the sport as formula one airplanes, are the only class of airplane built specifically for racing – and for racing fast! This highly competitive sport is rapidly growing into a mainstream popular series that is the ultimate test of both human and machine.
Jeff Zaltman, CEO of Air Race 1 comments on the new partnership with Bigatmo “We are grateful to the team at Bigatmo for supporting the Air Race 1 World Cup and the sport of formula one air racing. The race pilots will benefit greatly from the best eyewear a pilot can have in his flight bag. The
technology behind Bigatmo sunglasses will help ensure the pilots can hold the best race line and accurately spot the race pylons without hesitation while maneuvering at over 400kph just metres above the ground. Bigatmo is a valued partner and a valued tool for pilots everywhere.”
