Among classic car and motor racing enthusiasts, there is nothing bigger in the British summer than the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
The four day extravaganza, the largest event of its kind in the world, brings together an intoxicating mix of cars, stars and motorsport royalty.
This year, from June 29th to July 2nd 2017, Richemont watch brand Montblanc will be the official timing partner for the event.
The partnership, which runs for five years through to 2021, will see Montblanc associated with holy trinity of classic cars, precision engineering and pinpoint accurate timekeeping for adrenaline-fueled motor racing.
The Festival of Speed 2017 coincides with the launch of the Montblanc TimeWalker collection first seen by UK retailers at SIHH.
The collection aims to capture the spirit and adventure of the early racing drivers and their cars, and makes the link to the archive of Minerva’s precision instruments that is now owned by Montblanc.
“Goodwood is the ultimate celebration of the traditions and achievements of automotive racing over the past century, while Montblanc’s watchmaking heritage is closely tied to the chronographs used during the glory days of motor racing”, says Nicolas Baretzki, Montblanc CEO.
“The Goodwood Festival of Speed is the perfect platform to present our new TimeWalker collection as this partnership brings together the ambition of pushing boundaries in the field of automotive performance and racing on one side, and on innovating in the field of timekeeping performance on the other.”
