> Commemorative wristwatches for GT3 and GT4 champions
This year’s Intelligent Money British GT3 and GT4 champions will each receive a special commemorative wristwatch designed by the series’ new Official Timing Partner, REBELLION Timepieces.
Based in Lonay on the banks of Lake Geneva, the luxury Swiss manufacturer is a true horological pioneer and world renowned for its mix of bold design, limited-series productions and no-compromise attitude.
Motor sport’s all-consuming pursuit of perfection is also at the heart of every REBELLION Timepieces design. Indeed, the independent spirit and excellence so evident in its watchmaking was initially forged in the cauldron of competition by REBELLION Racing – perhaps the most successful privateer team in recent endurance racing history.
REBELLION Timepieces’ top-level involvement with the sport continues to this day through its Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN and Dakar Rally partnerships.
The brand’s British GT association also further extends its existing official timekeeping agreement with SRO Motorsports Group’s global GT3 series, Fanatec GT World Challenge Powered by AWS, which stages championships on four different continents.
British GT’s overall GT3 and GT4 champions will each receive one of four engraved Twenty-One GMT automatic watches, the design of which was inspired by a classic car steering wheel.
REBELLION Timepieces logos will also feature prominently on each British GT entry’s three number panels.
Calim Bouhadra, REBELLION Corporation CEO: “Official timekeeper of the Fanatec GT World Challenge Powered by AWS for the past two years, REBELLION Timepieces is very pleased to become an Intelligent Money British GT Championship partner and to accompany the competitors on the legendary circuits of Great Britain during this exciting 2022 season.”
Lauren Granville, Championship Manager: “REBELLION Timepieces has become an iconic name within modern motor sport thanks to its distinctive designs that mix cutting edge horological know-how with eye-catching aesthetics. The brand’s passion for, contribution to and heritage within motor racing cannot be questioned either, so it’s a real privilege for us to welcome them as an official partner this year.”
Season 30 of the Intelligent Money British GT Championship begins at Oulton Park on April 16 & 18.
