We are flattered to be sharing the podium with contemporaries and true icons of the global luxury sector such as Hermès, Maserati, Mont Blanc, Moët et Chandon and others, and delighted that our partnership with CNN International has been recognised for its coverage and creative treatment of our inaugural heritage racing season.”
