Nigel Lamb wins the 2014 Red Bull Air Race Championship Title
Nigel Lamb the British Pilot who flies for the Breitling Team just won his first ever Championship title for the Red Bull Air Race 2014 Season. With an incredibly consistent performance throughout the year and multiple appearances on the podium Nigel managed to overcome the challenges on every obstacle course in the 8 different cities around the world.
In an interview published on www.redbullairrace.com: “It’s just amazing,” said Lamb, who came from far behind in the World Championship with a victory in the third race of the season in Malaysia and then got five straight second place finishes to overtake Arch and Bonhomme in the standings. In Austria, Lamb had watched nervously as Arch dominated all three training sessions before the weekend’s racing and crushed everyone else with blazing speed in Saturday’s Qualifying at the picturesque Red Bull Ring track, which was surrounded by snow-capped mountains. “I feel very lucky because I didn’t think that my time was even good enough to get on the podium. It’s an amazing feeling. It’s a great day. It’s an indescribable feeling.”

What did the Crystalusion – Liquid Glass Protection and Nigel Lamb collaboration consist of?
The Crystalusion Team worked with Nigel Lamb and to coat his MXS single seater aircraft which he races in the Red Bull Air Race competition across the globe. This aircraft which is flown in all weather conditions has to deal with the effects of the elements in every race and for this reason the goal of coating the entire aircraft with Liquid Glass is to reduce drag. The superphobic coating repels all dirt, grease and grime including bugs and other creatures. Nigel Lamb said,“Aerodynamic drag reduction is paramount in this competitive air sport where we are endlessly striving for those elusive small fractions of seconds. I’ll be delighted with any competitive advantage Breitling Racing Team can gain with Crystalusion™.”
