Omologato Set to Race the ADAC Total 24 Hour Race with Pippa Mann, WS Racing Girls Only Team
This June, at the 49th running of the ADAC Total 24 Hour race at the Nurburgring Norschleife, five LM Black Edition Omologato watches will also be competing in the race alongside Mann, and her co-drivers in the WS Racing Girl’s Only Giti Tire Audi GT4 entry.
The watches will travel to Germany with Mann, be bubble wrapped, and carefully placed in her racing gloves bag, which will then be taped to the inside of the Audi GT4. The process of wrapping, and placing the watches in the car will be documented on social media, and five race fans will have the opportunity to own one of these unique pieces that will compete with Mann, and the rest of the team, in the 24 hour race.
The LM Black Edition watches will become available from 1pm UK time/8am Eastern on Tuesday May 25th, and will be sold on a first come, first serve basis via the omologatwowatches.com website. Each watch listing will also include the unique edition number specific to that watch, and all watches will be sent out post-race with a certificate of authenticity.
“We’re not just about a logo on a car,” said Shami Kalra, founder of Omologato, “we believe in authenticity and having partnered with Pippa last fall, we felt it was time we went racing with her. The idea of having our watches literally compete with her, and her team-mates in the event, and of creating five unique pieces of racing memorabilia that fans can own after the event was something we felt really connected to the spirit of what we call #TeamOmologato.”
“I’m thrilled to have this opportunity to activate with Omologato at such a famous event, and to have the opportunity to create these five collectible items for race fans to own,” said Mann. “Having these watches race with us inside the WS Racing Girls Only Giti Tire Audi GT4 is going to be very cool, and I hope race fans are as excited by this idea as we are.”
The 2021 ADAC Total 24 Hour Race takes place on June 5th/6th, on the 170 corner, 13 mile Nurburgring Nordschleife in the Eifel Mountains of Germany. Nicknamed “The Green Hell”, the race track is as famous as it is infamous, and is notorious for difficult driving conditions, making the ADAC 24 Hour Race one of the toughest circuit races in the world for racers to conquer.
Omologato also have a range of their time pieces available from Master Jewelers in Indianapolis, Indiana.
