The 80th Liman 24 Hours, sponsored by Rolex, was held in the south of Liman, 200 kilometers from Paris, France, and ended on June 17. This tournament continues to receive Rolex support as an official timing partner. After a long and hard battle, Audi finally overwhelmed the crowd and won the first and second prizes of the event. This is also the first time that a hybrid car has won, and it is also worth paying attention to. The most important thing in the endurance race is precision, teamwork and perseverance. This is also the concept that Rolex, the official timing partner of Lehman, has always advocated. Rolex has been a Lehman 24-hour endurance partner since 2001 and has been its official watch since the World Endurance Championship (WEC) was established.
The successful trio of gold champions Marcel Faessler (Switzerland), André Lotterer (Germany) and
Benoît Tréluyer (France) stands on the podium again. In this year’s 24-hour race, this championship team
378 laps were equivalent to 5,150 kilometers. Tréluyer said in an interview after the race that the team’s success was fully leveraged

two. As before, Kristensen and Rinaldo “Dindo” Capello (Italy) and Allan McNish (Su
Grand) continued to form the team as the runner-up, and the trio successfully returned to the top of the WEC driver list.
Compared with the LM P1 event, the score of the LM P2 class is closer, because the top three cars are within two laps. Starworks Motorsports Honda has won the team’s second WEC championship award this time. The LM P2 competition is fierce, with at least 20 powerful cars competing. Without perfect timing, Lehman’s 24-hour endurance race cannot show today’s edge. Since 2001, Rolex has been the timing partner of this event, providing perfect official timing support for the entire race. Every year, Rolex presents a special Spirit of Le Mans award in recognition of those who best interpret the spirit of Lehman’s 24-hour endurance race. In addition, the winner will also receive a Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona watch with an all-steel structure. The back of the watch is especially engraved with the words ‘2012 Liman 24 Hours Endurance Championship’, which is of great significance.
The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona watch is inextricably linked to motorsport. It is a must-have item for many drivers and enjoys a high status among motorsports lovers. For the driver who has been awarded the title with the championship engraved, this watch represents the highest honor.
