Citizen and Erebus Motorsports Partner for 2013 V8 Supercars

Wednesday, December 4th, 2013


It goes without saying that in motorsports time is the Holy Grail. From one hundredths of a second on a lap time, to measuring fuel efficiency and performance, time underpins all aspects of car racing.

CITIZEN, known for its patented precise timekeeping technology, and innovative super light titanium advances, have partnered with the Erebus Motorsports V8 Supercar Team as they race to the leader board of the 2013 V8 Supercars Championship.

Coming to Sydney from December 6th – 8th, the Sydney 500 will roar around the streets of Homebush, a race that tests not only engines and driver skills, but also the time the course takes to complete.

The drivers, Lee Holdsworth, Maro Engel and Tim Slade, of cars #4, #9 and #47 will be wearing the CITIZEN Super Titanium Watch, which is the official watch of the Erebus Motorsport V8 Supercar Team.

For over four decades, CITIZEN have pioneered research into Titanium; breakthroughs in surface hardening technology have allowed CITIZEN to develop Super Titanium which is 5 times harder than stainless steel, yet 40% lighter.
