Jaeger-LeCoultre official Watch Partner of Aston Martin Racing
Bound together for several years in a similar spirit of innovation and an ongoing quest for perfection, Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin recently extended their relationship, Jaeger-LeCoultre becoming the official Watch Partner of Aston Martin Racing within a three year technical partnership. This association between two worlds with shared values reinforced the strong ties between fine watchmaking and fine mechanical engineering. Jaeger-LeCoultre is proud to announce that Aston Martin Racing has won the Catalunya 1000 kilometres race, held on April 5th, in Barcelona (Spain). The 007 car, driven by Jan Charouz (CZ), Tomas Enge (CZ) and Stefan Mücke (DE) finished first after a flawless debut run. Car 009, crewed by Harold Primat (CH), Miguel Ramos (PT) and Darren Turner (GB), ran in the top three until the final 40 minutes of the race, when a spin put the crew out of contention.
In June 2009, Aston Martin will once again be taking part in the most legendary of all endurance races at the Le Mans 24 Hours with the firm intention of winning the legendary blue and orange Gulf trophy in this 50th anniversary year of the previous historical exploit. Jaeger-LeCoultre, which has been partnering the prestigious British automobile manufacturer since 2004, will present a new AMVOX Racing model to mark this auspicious occasion.
