As the 2016 racing season gears up, ready to roar into action, Roger Dubuis lines up on the starting grid of GT championship racing in the world‑class company of the FFF Racing Team.
In it to win it!
Multiple parallels can be drawn between the world of motorsports and that of Roger Dubuis, including dedication to performance and precision, along with a determination to stay ahead of the pack.
First and foremost, their natural affinities are based on a shared and relentless obsession with incredible mechanics, expressed through finely tuned engines and equally state-of-the-art, meticulously honed movements. Moreover, this compelling enthusiasm for technical complexity is backed by an equally powerful penchant for sophisticated design conveyed through streamlined bodywork as well as in the sleek exteriors of Roger Dubuis timepieces.
Much like the high-calibre Hong Kong-based FFF Racing Team that is dedicated to providing a “professional platform for the discerning driver to race alongside the elite in the most prestigious GT racing arenas in Europe and Asia”, the Geneva-based Maison shows an undeniable ability to compete with the best and attract connoisseurs of discerning taste.
Staging mechanical experiences
Given its whole-hearted nature manifested in all its endeavors, Manufacture Roger Dubuis has opted to sign a partnership as primary sponsor of the FFF Racing Team. Composed of both professional and amateur drivers. This cooperation will encompass 15 races across Europe and Asia, notably as part of the Le Mans Cup raced on such legendary tracks as Imola and Le Mans, as well as the GT Asia championship with events held in Korea, Japan and China.
Within the framework of this prestigious partnership, five GT supercars, driven by five professional drivers, will be proudly competing in the colours of the Manufacture.
“Roger Dubuis and the FFF Racing Team share a fascination for – and indepth knowledge of – what we like to call haute mécanique, the high-octane mechanical equivalent of haute couture. This partnership embodies our intrinsic values and priorities as a specialist of architectural and technical mechanics.” Jean-Marc Pontroué, CEO Roger Dubuis.
To mark this auspicious cooperation, Roger Dubuis is issuing an eight-piece limited edition of its already iconic Excalibur Quatuor, featuring pink gold accents creating a warm and striking contrast with the charcoal rhodium-plated finishing as well as with the black DLC titanium case. This timepiece sporting the FFF logo at 12 o’clock clearly displays its revolutionary means of compensating for the earth’s gravity by means of four sprung balances together with five differentials
