Start you engines Skylanders Fans!
Skylanders SuperChargers will be lighting up the track this weekend with racing star Max Chilton! The race car driver has partnered with the #1 kids' console franchise for the season finale of Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires, part of the Mazda Road to Indy, happening on Saturday and Sunday in Monterey, California. Max's uniform and vehicle will feature Skylanders SuperChargers branding. Awesome!
The partnership takes Skylanders SuperChargers' latest innovation of vehicles to life ~ and revs up one of the games' newest features, racing. Chilton, a 24 year old former Formula 1 Driver and fan of the Skylanders franchise will blaze the tracks of Laguna Seca in a Skylander SuperCharged-themed race car on September 12 - 13, 2015.
"It's great to once again be working with the team from Skylanders to support the launch of their new Skylanders SuperChargers game. This follows an event we did together recently in Germany at the Gamescom Conference. I'm excited to have developed the relationship and bring it into my racing. At Laguna Seca this weekend, my Indy car will be branded with SuperChargers livery as part of a number of media and digital promotions," said Max Chilton. "The Skylanders SuperChargers game is all about speed, reactions and of course winning, so there are obvious parallels to real life racing, albeit I can't grab powerups or slow other drivers down with a laser cannon! I'm hoping for a strong finish to the season and targeting another podium or a win to round off the year with Carlin."
