The FIA World Rallycross Championship has confirmed today a multi-year deal with Rebellion Timepieces to become the series official timekeepers and also an official partner to WorldRX.
The deal with WorldRX means that Rebellion will provide official Timekeeping for the 2015 FIA World Rallycross Championship and will be seen in the Paddock at all 13 World Championship Events. They will also gain exposure in the Official TV Show which is seen in over 150 countries as well as being seen online by viewers and fans all around the world.
At each WorldRX event, there will be an Official Rebellion Countdown Clock in operation in the Paddock, whilst the winner of each World RX race will be awarded an X1 Rebellion watch. A limited-edition official World RX watch range will be launched later on this year.
Calim Bouhadra, Senior Vice President for Rebellion Timepieces, is overjoyed at the deal.
“We are thrilled to join World RX on this exciting new venture and look forward to working with a Championship that shares the same outlook and ambitions as we do. World RX is young, spectacular and ambitious and shares our spirit and passion for motorsport. Rebellion Timepieces stands for innovation, high technology, design – all values we share.”
World RX Managing Director for IMG, Martin Anayi, added,“We are delighted to welcome Rebellion Timepieces on board as the Championship’s official timing partner and look forward to working with Rebellion on a new chapter of rallycross history. Both Rebellion Timepieces and World RX have shown rapid growth over the last few years and there is a great deal of synergy – there is both technical innovation and maximum performance in the products of both companies.
“The new partnership also opens up opportunities for joint collaborations with Rebellion Racing’s hugely successful Le Mans/LMP1 project which we will look to develop the upcoming seasons.”
The deal between WorldRX and Rebellion Timepieces will also see WorldRX logos on the Rebellion Racing LMP1 Prototypes when they compete in the 2015 edition of the Le Mans 24 Hours endurance classic.
This agreement means that WorldRX will now see further exposure in 2015, both at Le Mans in June as well as in the DTM in May.
