Land Speed Record successes in the 1930s, when he became the first driver to
break the 300 mph barrier at the wheel of Bluebird. Since then, Rolex’s presence
in motor racing has grown steadily, supporting iconic endurance races such as
the Rolex 24 at Daytona® and the 24 Hours of Le Mans; iconic classic car events
steeped in elegance, beauty and tradition, including the Pebble Beach Concours
d’Elegance®, the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion and Goodwood Revival; the
leading motor sport series, Formula 1®, and most recently, the FIA World Endurance
Championship.
