Richard Mille brought more than a new watch to Le Mans this year

The 2018 edition of Le Mans Classic shattered previous records in terms of participation and attendance and Swiss-based watchmaker, Richard Mille, once again played its part.

As the main partner for the famous race, Richard Mille brought along a new watch for the occasion, the RM 11-03 Le Mans Classic.

This limited edition of 150 pieces in white ceramic is equipped with the RMAC3 automatic calibre that has a fly back chronograph that can flatten the on-track lap timers.

At the Circuit de la Sarthe, the organisers of the event, Peter Auto and the Automobile Club de l’Ouest, as well as Richard Mille, its main partner, welcomed 135,000 spectators over the course of three days with over 700 classic cars in competition, 200 automobile clubs and 1,000 drivers which includes 10 winners of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, representing 30 different nations.

Richard Mille took this opportunity to invite a number of friends and partners, such as Mike Flewitt, CEO of McLaren Automotive, the future Formula E driver, Felipe Massa, WRX driver Sébastien Loeb and football player Didier Drogba, who gave the start for Little Big Mans, the race for drivers in short pants, on Saturday.

Richard Mille welcomed ‘one and all to rediscover the spirit of Le Mans’ in two years for the 2020 edition, which will be the 10th for one of the world’s largest historic automobile events.
