Richard Mille and Le Mans Classic, a perfect match
Since almost the start of the brand 13 years ago, Richard Mille has become an important partner of Le Mans Classic, one the greatest race of legendary sport cars on the planet. Based on the original 24-hour race of Le Mans, this race weekend lets 450 cars and their crews live up to the magic of this extraordinary circuit but a on slightly easier program. Never the less this is still an endurance race and cars are divided into 6 grids depending on the age of the cars and each grid will participate at three 45-minute race sessions mixing day and night conditions.
Brand ambassadors Yohan Blake, the Jamaican sprinter, and Sébastien Loeb, the 9-time Rally world champion, were both present to wave the starting flag of some of the races.
The match between the brand and this event is just perfect considering the motor sports dimension that originally influenced Richard Mille's emblematic design and high technicality of his watches. But here on top of it, you have the smell of these revving engines, the tension in the pit lane, the rain falling, well a pure pleasure for the mechanical aficionado!
