arc A. Hayek and Stephan Winkelmann, the respective
Presidents and CEOs of Blancpain and Lamborghini, set
the seal on the exhilarating union of two legendary names.
For the 2012 season, Marc A. Hayek and Peter Kox have been driving
the new Lamborghini Gallardo LP 600 GT3 made by Reiter
Engineering. It is with this high-powered car that the two drivers are
competing in the Blancpain Endurance Series and the ADAC GT
Masters.
The alliance between Blancpain and the iconic luxury sports car maker
Lamborghini celebrates the technical performances and exclusive
aesthetics of two manufacturers at the peak of their art combining
tradition and innovation.
The Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo is a dream come true for
motorsports enthusiasts.
Since 2007, the ADAC GT Masters has won the hearts of automobile
fans around the world. Blancpain proudly announced its partnership
with this thrilling championship based in Germany with select events
run elsewhere in Europe. With Alpina-BMW, Ascari, Aston Martin,
Audi, Corvette, Ferrari, Ford GT, Lamborghini and Porsche: the most
prestigious brands are taking part.
The ADAC GT Masters is a “PRO-AM” Championship with each car
shared by a professional and an amateur driver. Each event consists of
two 60-minute races.
The two drivers share the work in both the qualifying sessions and the
two one-hour races on a weekend.
As a result, the starting grid is a varied mix of personalities: ambitious
amateurs meet former Formula 1 drivers, experienced DTMplayers and
also celebrities.
Through this partnership, Blancpain is further reinforcing its presence
in the world of motorsport around Europe and consolidating the natural
link between fine mechanical watchmaking and the automobile world.
Marc A. Hayek, Blancpain CEO, won the 2011 Amateur Championship
title and is competing again this year to defend it.
Simply Abu Dhabi wishes both Lamboughini and Blancpain the best of
luck.
