Italian watchmaker Anonimo has underlined its commitment to racing by expanding its partnership with Audi Sport Leopard Lukoil Team and taking part in the 2018 FIA-WTCR World Championship.
The partnership between the watch brand and Leopard Racing WRT has been renewed to further embrace car racing.
Anonimo will be Leopard Racing’s Official Timekeeper in the 2018 FIA-WTCR World Championship, the brand new series for touring cars, which will officially begin this week at the Moulay El Hassan Circuit, Morocco. The 2018 calendar includes 10 rounds with three races for each event and final showdown scheduled on November 10 in Macao.
The change also concerns the racing structure as Leopard Racing and WRT will now be supported by Audi Sport and Lukoil. The involvement of these two industry titans will guarantee drivers Jean-Karl Vernay, reigning TCR champion, and Gordon Shedden, former BTCC champion, the opportunity to express their full potential at the wheel of the Audi RS3 LMS.
The official timekeeper, Anonimo will be on the wrists of both drivers and on the fairings of both cars.
Last month it was announced that Anonimo Watches had extended its partnership with leading MotoGP World Championship team Leopard Racing for a fourth consecutive year.
As part of the framework, the watchmaker created its first limited edition collection as part of this year’s deal that is styled in the same blue color as Leopard Racing’s bikes and leathers.
