Sponsorship in any motorsport becomes an essential component of team growth and development. This is no less true in the Red Bull Air Race and the latest partnership in the series sees Simply Cola join forces with Matt Hall for the 2016 season. 

Hall was a title contender last season, and with this new backing he could take that next step in his Red Bull Air Race career and become the 2016 World Champion. "We are really excited to start the 2016 Red Bull Air Race season with a new look and partnership with Simply Cola," said Hall at the recent unveiling in Australia.

Matt Hall is a fiercely patriotic Australian and didn't want to hide his heritage with the new style. "For my entire Red Bull Air Race career we have proudly carried the same yellow colours with the Australian flag and Southern Cross prominently as part of the design and this new look has allowed us to make a change but still maintain that patriotism," he added.

It's been a busy offseason for the Matt Hall Racing team, but they are now ready to start the season. "It's taken a lot of hard work behind the scenes from the team, particularly our technician Eric Cieslar, to get this raceplane repainted and looking so good, and now we are focussed on a good performance first up in Abu Dhabi," concluded Hall.
