Engines roar and roads blur beneath. Jaws tighten. Then relax. Concentration remains in overdrive. Strapped in by a seat belt, 
but there by courage. Daylight fades and night shocks the senses.
All the while, the heart is resolute. Endure.

The 24 Hours of Le Mans
Tom Kristensen


Rolex and motor sports

2013 winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. For a record 9th time. 2012 winner of the 12 Hours of Sebring. For a record 6th time. The dominant force in endurance racing. The harder the track, the greater his will to conquer it.


Rolex and motor sports

With a simple drop of the green flag, anticipation gives way to intense action. For a demanding 24 straight hours, drivers must endure competition from all walks of racing, unforgiving curves and a track only 20% illuminated at night. If for any second, endurance gives way to mental and physical exhaustion, the chance to triumph slips away as fast as a speeding opponent. Drivers who remain resolute and confident in the face of danger, however, will go further than they ever have before.
