HYT: another step forward into motor sports with Panis-Barthez Competition

HYT is proud to announce its partnership with this brand new team – Panis-Barthez Compétition - created in January 2016 and currently competing in the European Le Mans Series. Through this new partnership, HYT reaffirms its quest for performance and endurance. Indeed, HYT’s commitment to manufacturing high technology fluidic watches exactly matches Panis-Barthez Competition’s own philosophy: performance driven by passion.

The name of the team comes from the association of the name of its founders, two emblematic figures of French elite sports. Oliver Panis is the last French who won the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix and Fabien Barthez the one and only goalkeeper who led the French football team to its World Champion Title in 1998 and UEFA European Champion Title in 2000.

The team is very ambitious for this season and is aiming to win in the ELMS category with two cars. HYT wishes the team the very best of luck for the next races of the season:

June 18-19 - 24 hours of Le Mans

July 17 - 4 hours of the Red Bull Ring

August 28 - 4 hours of Le Castellet

September 25 - 4 hours of Spa-Francorchamps

October 23 - 4 hours of Estoril
