Bremont signs timekeeping deal with Donington Park


This two-and-a-half metre, double-sided clock signifies a new eight-year partnership between Bremont and Donington Park Racing.

The Henley watch brand will serve as official timing partner at the Midlands race track.

The pit lane clock was designed by Bremont to reflect its existing Solo range but manufactured by local clockmaker Smith of Derby.


Giles English, Bremont Co-Founder; “This is a very exciting, long term partnership for Bremont and one that further builds on our ties within the automotive world having collaborated with the likes of Jaguar and Norton. Donington Park is an iconic British venue with international acclaim which has a huge history. Bremont is now incredibly proud to be a part of this new chapter at Donington and delighted to be working with Smith of Derby on the project.”

Donington Park motor racing circuit was the first permanent park circuit in England. Its first motorcycle race took place in 1931 on the narrow lanes of the Donington Hall Estate. In 1933 the track was widened, made permanent and became a venue for Grand Prix car racing. The Second World War put an end to all racing at the circuit in 1939, after being requisitioned by the Ministry of Defence to be used as a military vehicle depot.

Christopher Tate, managing director of Donington Park Racing Limited, added: “The entire team at Donington Park is delighted to have Bremont as our new watch partner, and we thank them for their provision of this wonderful new pit lane clock. The design exactly matches Bremont’s fine range of watches, as well as matching the aspirations of the ‘new’ Donington Park, which combines its great history and traditions with also leading the way in new motorsport technology, as home to the FIA Formula E electric race car series, and as the 2015 home of the British Motorcycle Grand Prix, Moto GP.”
