Leopard Racing's Joan Mir has won the 2017 Moto3™ World Championship after a spectacular ride at Phillip Island
Fourth in the standings that season as he competed with the Leopard Racing junior programme, Mir was on the podium in each of the races he finished with the exception of being crashed out in Valencia – ending the year only 36 points off Nicolo Bulega’s title-winning tally.
As an official sponsor of the Leopard Racing teams for the past two seasons, ANONIMO presented last spring a LEOPARD RACING limited edition showcased at the various circuits around the world. Now available on the market, this watch, supplied with a black rubber bracelet with grid patterns, ideally suit watch enthusiasts who appreciate the sports-chic look.
The same "Blue Leopard" color appears on the bezel, the NATO bracelet and even the counterweight of the second hand, while each watch is also individually numbered. On the screwed back, a special LEOPARD decoration is engraved and there is also the engraving of the limited series of 97 pieces in tribute, and a reference, to the creation of Anonimo in 1997. In a 44.4 mm case combining brushed and DLC steel, this sports watch is equipped with the robust Sellita SW200-1 automatic movement and has the date housed at 6 o’clock.
ANONIMO congratulates once again Mir and all the Leopard Racing Team and is proud to dedicate them a limited edition.
Victors were crowned on this final day of Marseille One Design, also the last day of competition on the 2017 GC32 Racing Tour.
