Leading watch maker chosen to provide precision race timing
Swiss watchmaker Edox has become the official timing partner for the P1 Super Stock Championship, mirroring the deal the brand has with the FIA World Rally Championship and UIM Class 1 Powerboat series.
In addition to its race timing and results service, Edox is generously donating two high-class watches, each worth £1,500, which will be awarded to the winning teams in both the P1 250 and P1 150 classes.
The company recently celebrated its 125th anniversary and is renowned in marine circles for producing the first water-resistant watch to 200 metres watch.
Commercial director James Durbin says: “We expect our 2011 partnership with Edox will be the first of many years collaborating with Powerboat P1.
“Our organising team wanted the best timing we could find to match the intricacies of match racing. The high profile and expertise in motorsport Edox deliver made it the perfect fit.”
The five-round championship reaches its climax in Liverpool’s Albert Dock on September 10.
