Corum has signed American racer Hanna Zellers as an official Friend of the Brand.
Having started racing as a six-year-old go karter under the tutelage of her racing-obsessed father, Ms Zellers has driven in the Formula Enterprise US Majors Tour in 2015.
The following year she earned two top five finishes in the EXR Championship and placed third in the SCCA US Majors Northern Conference Championship. At the end of the year, she was named SBR SCCA Driver of the Year for the second year in a row.
In 2017, she raced in the SCCA Hoosier Super Tour Formula Atlantic placing 3rd in the open-wheeled race car. This year she also ventured into NASCAR placing 12th in her first stock car race at NJMP.
2018 was a breakthrough year, with Ms Zellers making the jump to race IMSA in LMP3 after being evaluated in testing. She also had the opportunity to race in the F4 US Championship in order to broaden her racing prowess. In both races, she competed against many experienced and competitive drivers.
“We are delighted to support Hanna and her passion for racing. Since 1955, Corum has adopted creativity and boldness as its guiding principles, both in watchmaking and design, as well as in our partnerships. Hanna’s bold pursuit to join an elite team of female drivers aligns with our philosophy and our Admiral collection of watches designed for extreme sports enthusiasts” said Rich Louis, Corum’s North American Vice President of Sales and Operations.
As a Friend of the Brand, Ms Zellers will wear a Corum Admiral 38 on and off the racetrack as well as sporting Corum logos on her race car and jumpsuit.
