Spin Master Ltd. is proud to announce that Air Hogs, the world's leading R/C brand, is sponsoring the first ever Red Bull Air Race in New York City, taking place Saturday, June 19 and Sunday, June 20. For the occasion, Air Hogs has signed on to sponsor 26 year old Canadian flying sensation Pete McLeod, the youngest pilot to compete in the weekend's races.

This fifth leg of the 2010 World Championship tour will take place for the first time in New York over the Hudson River at Liberty State Park in Jersey City. In close cooperation with host city partners NYC & Company, Jersey City, NJ and Liberty State Park, the Manhattan skyline and brilliant Liberty State Park landmarks will serve as remarkable backdrops for 300 million TV viewers in 87 countries worldwide.

"Bringing the world's fastest growing motorsport into the heart of New York City has been on our minds for the last six years and now, after three years of intense preparations, the goal of racing on one of the planet's biggest stages has been achieved," says Bernd Loidl, CEO of the Red Bull Air Race. "Partnering with Air Hogs represents an exciting opportunity for us as an organization and helps us connect with our fans who enjoy the fun of R/C flying."

"We couldn't be more excited for Air Hogs to be a part of this event with Red Bull, and to team up with a talent like Pete," says Grant Chapman, Director of Air Hogs Marketing. "We wish him and all of the racers good luck for this unprecedented event."

"I'm thrilled to have Air Hogs sponsor the team for the New York race," says Pete McLeod. "The Air Hogs brand really embodies innovation and the fun of flight, there are great synergies between the Air Hogs and PMR brands. The Air Hogs decals on the plane look great, I hope to provide tremendous exposure for Air Hogs over the weekend."
