Peter Auto, a reputed specialist organiser of international events, has decided to offer owners of the most exteptional cars a new opportunity to give them a run in the Rallye des Légendes Richard Mille. Participation in this unique event of its type will be limited to 50 cars produced between 1925 and 1975 selected depending on their exceptional and historic character.
Richard Mille enjoys a close association with lots of the world’s leading athletes. With this 2017 World Championships in Athletics due to occur in early August at London, Richard Mille has declared a set of special watches for just two of its latest ambassadors, Olympic medallists Mutaz Essa Barshim and Wayde van Niekerk. These brand new watches are known as the Richard Mille RM 67-02 High Jump and RM 67-02 Sprint, for its athletes’ respective events.Before we discuss the watches, it is necessary to talk first about Richard Mille’s latest ambassadors. Mutaz Essa Barshim is a Qatari high jump pro and currently holds the national album and Asian record in high jump with a best mark of 2.43 meters. He won a silver medal at the 2016 Olympics. In addition, he holds the world’s best time at the 300-meter. And that is not all, since he is also the only sprinter in history to have run the 100 meters in under 10 minutes, the 200 meters in less than 20 seconds, the 300 meters in less than 31 seconds, along with the 400 meters in below 44 seconds.Impressive athletes for sure, but surely also striking would be the brand new Richard Mille RM 67-02 Sprint and High Jump watches. The RM 67-02 relies on the sooner Richard Mille RM 67-01 (hands-on here) and may be said to be the sport version. Both RM 67-02 watches have exactly the identical movement as the RM 67-01, but possess different cases which have been designed particularly for the 2 athletes.
The idea of competition will be totally absent from the Rallye des Légendes Richard Mille Watches Indian Price Replica that will be held over a three-day period on a star-shaped route which, every evening, will bring the participants back to the hub town. On the programme is the celebration of the ‘art de vivre à la Française’ through the discovery of a different French region every year whose diversity and hidden treasures will be highlighted; a daily leg of 250 kilometres maximum on the traces of famous special stages as well as runs on a circuit, visits to the hotspots of local patrimony, gastronomic lunches and dinners created by the greatest chefs as well as a night time break in top-class hotels.
Richard Mille, Peter Auto’s long-time partner in its events, is its first team-mate in this rally, which is the perfect embodiment of the values of exclusivity, know-how, elegance and perfection of the eponymous watch maker. This event in September 2018 is already eagerly awaited by its future participants and by connoisseurs everywhere.
CAERM moves to the summer
While the 4th Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille again met with unanimous success among the participants and the public (the spectator attendance registered a 20% increase compared to 2016, reaching a total of 16 300 visitors), Peter Auto and Richard Mille have decided to change its date. Faced with the complexity of organising an event of this scale at the beginning of September (start of school, other major rendezvous, etc.), Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille will now take place in July in odd-numbered years alternately with Le Mans Classic. Thus, the event’s organisation and development will enjoy optimal conditions to achieve an even more successful concours, which will be all the more eagerly awaited by collectors and visitors alike.
So the next staging will take place in Chantilly in 2019. In the meantime the classes in the Concours d’Etat will be revealed at the Peter Auto Press Conference at the next Rétromobile Exhibition.
