Chopard supported Porsche Motorsport at the Austin FIA World Endurance Championship as the “official timing partner”. As the Official Timing Partner of Porsche Motorsport since the beginning of the season, Chopard was proud to support the Porsche teams in the Austin, TX FIA WEC as the Porsche 911 RSR teams came in second and fourth position and the Porsche 919 Hybrid cars ended at the fourth and fifth place. Perfectly in line with the spirit of the Superfast watch collection, this prestigious partnership is an extension of Chopard’s longstanding commitment to automotive sports.
Porsche Motorsport and Chopard naturally gravitated towards each other around their passion for racing united by shared values such as the constant quest for performance and excellence. The exceptional mechanics emerging from the Porsche Motorsport or Chopard workshops have significantly influenced their respective fields and remain benchmarks for aficionados of motorsports and watchmaking born of a joint desire to pursue reliability and innovation.
Chopard’s Co-President, Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, an avid motorsport enthusiast and vintage racing car collector says “Porsche stands for passion and performance – values we can fully identify with. We are proud to be part of their return to the FIA World Endurance series this season.”
The FIA World Endurance Championship will continue through October and November with races in Fuji/Japan, Shanghai/China, Sakhir/Bahrain and Sao Paulo/Brazil.
