, the official watch and timing partner’ of A1GP World Cup of Motorsport, has welcomed the news that the racing event will be held at Surfers Paradise for the next five years – starting this October.
TW Steel managing director Jordy Cobelens said the Surfers Paradise event will provide “an exceptional promotional platform” for the company’s oversized watches, particularly its newly launched A1GP model.
Based on the company’s successful TECH collection introduced last year, the A1GP features a chronograph movement that can measure time accurately to 1/20th of a second as well as a rubber strap in white or black with racing tread. Waterproof to 100 metres, the watch comes in three designs (two steel and one iAA grade rose gold plating).
The A1GP series was launched in 2005 and currently includes teams from 23 countries. This year’s event in Surfers Paradise will be held on October 24-25.
In addition to the A1GP partnership, TW Steel is also hosting a global search to find Miss TW Steel 2008-09, with each country on the 2008-09 A1GP schedule hosting a round of ‘Miss TW Steel’ before the grand finale at Brands Hatch in England in May.
