Nico Rosberg is equal to the Oris challenge in Singapore

01.10.2008 - Nico Rosberg is equal to the Oris challenge in Singapore

Ahead of the first Formula One night race in Singapore Oris, the Official Watch Partner of the AT&T Williams Formula One team organised a very special event with Williams’ driver Nico Rosberg.

In the modern and elaborate surroundings of the Millennia Walk shopping centre in Singapore Oris organised an exhibition of the latest watches from the new Williams F1 Team collection and the TT3 collection.

On September 23rd Nico Rosberg visited the exhibition to meet and greet Oris guests, give interviews to waiting journalists and – most importantly - to take part in the great Oris GP Challenge! As part of the exhibition a life size Williams F1 car simulator was installed in the shopping centre.

Nico took to the simulator first, driving two laps and setting a fastest lap time of 1 min 12 seconds. After such a fine display of driving, Oris guests were invited to try to beat Nico’s fastest lap time with top prizes up for grabs.

The delighted winner received an Oris TT3 Day Date and a pair of return air tickets to Bangkok! After the challenge Nico was presented with the Oris TT3 Chronograph Black as a reminder of his visit to Singapore.

Paul Phua of Oris Singapore said: “Today has been fantastic and it’s great that Nico was able to join us and take part in the GP challenge. Our guests were very impressed to have met such a big motor sports star. The night race is a really exciting event for us here in Singapore and having Nico here as a preview has been the perfect preparation.”
