Breitling Watch Celebrates Reno Air Races with Racing Game App

Breitling is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Reno Air Races with a fast-paced air racing game for iOS and Android.

The luxury watch brand is the main sponsor of the Reno Air Races, one of the world's biggest aeronautical events. The 50th edition is taking place from September 11th - 15th 2013, with hundreds of thousands of spectators visiting the Nevada desert to enjoy the "pylon" races, where planes are flown just a few feet off the ground at speeds of over 500 mph.

In tribute to "half a century of performance, excitement and breathtaking sights" and its ongoing partnership, Breitling is encouraging fans to experience the Reno Air Races through its 3D racing game, available for free download on iOS and Android.

Game players can customise a plane of their choice before piloting it at Reno, either in a multiplayer race or a solo challenge.

"Featuring stunning full 3D graphics, the Breitling Air Races game provides a lifelike reconstitution of the formidable pylon races and an authentic immersion into this extreme world with its vivid colours, roaring engines, fierce competition and pulsating performances," the brand says.
