It was indeed on the legendary Höckenheim circuit that Marc A. Hayek was crowned the 2011 amateur champion at the final of the ADAC GT Masters.

Blancpain was the first watch manufacturer to commit to supporting the Monaco Association Against Muscular Dystrophy. Over the past decade, the Manufacture in Le Brassus has aided AMM's endeavours through participation in various activities including the first 'Monthematic' projects in the early 2000s through to the latest Only Watch auction held in September 2011. Blancpain is now pleased to extend its support for AMM through the auction of this highly desirable Lamborghini Gallardo LP600 GT3 racing car.

Blancpain has been making mechanical watches that set standards of excellence since 1735. A custodian of watchmaking tradition, Blancpain nevertheless seeks to surprise with its spirit of innovation and taste for the provocative. At Blancpain, respect for our own watchmaking tradition is not felt as a barrier to innovation. On the contrary, the past history of the Manufacture of Le Brassus is an inexhaustible source of ideas. This taste for boldness and provocation finds expression in the latest creations of the brand. With a high proportion of its components and tools designed and made in-house, training of specialists and craftsmen, manual assembly of each movement by a single watchmaker, the strength of the Manufacture lies in its capacity to create timepieces that are at once innovative and loyal to the grand Swiss watchmaking tradition.
