Time is ticking away to the start of the 2019 FIA World Rallycross Championship, presented by Monster Energy but, will have a whole new level of Swiss precision with watch brand, Edox, on board as the new official timing partner.
The partnership with the FIA World Rallycross Championship extends Edox’s long history of involvement with motor sport.
As Official Timing Partner, Edox will have significant trackside branding and put its name to the fastest lap at each round of the championship. Additionally there are plans for a FIA World Rallycross-themed timepiece collection.
In welcoming Edox to the fold, Paul Bellamy, Senior Vice President of IMG Motorsports, the series promoter, said: “We are delighted Edox is joining our stable of commercial partners as Official Timing Partner.
“Edox has a rich heritage in motor sport and we are privileged it has chosen the FIA World Rallycross Championship as the ideal environment for continuing that association.”
The 135-year old family-owned company combines traditional hand-assembly with innovative materials and functionality at the company headquarters in Les Genevez.
The Chronorally collection has been developed to withstand the most extreme racing conditions and will be the assigned watch for World RX.
Alexandre Strambini, CEO says: “At Edox, we attach great importance to the world of motor sports and to the values it represents. We have been repeatedly the Official Timing Partner for some of FIA’s prestigious competitions in the past years and we are now very proud to start this new partnership with the FIA World Rallycross Championship.”
