HYT Peter Hackett, new “friend of the brand”
— The Australian motorsports racer Peter Hackett joins the HYT family.
A year ago, HYT introduced its first ambassador, Jean-Eric Vergne from the motorsports industry and competing as a racing driver at the FIA Formula E. At the beginning of the year, HYT reinforced its position in the racing industry by launching its partnership with Peter Li Zhi Cong, the young FIA F3 racer from China. Today, the brand announces its latest addition to its racing family, Australian Friend of the Brand Chief Driving Instructor of Mercedes-Benz and race driver of the AMG GT3, Peter Hackett.
Vincent Perriard explained that Peter is a huge fan of the brand and, more importantly, he is a proud owner of an HYT watch, the H1 Titanium Black DLC that he bought long time before discussing about this partnership. Peter perfectly knows the brand as a final customer and he completely falls for the complexity of our products. « This kind of association is just unique for a brand. « Indeed, to have your final client as your ambassador is the best thing a brand can imagine to have » Perriard said.
Hackett loves innovation, science, passion and technology, it’s why he chose the HYT’s Skull Green Eye for testing it during its daily life and during a year fully planned of races.
The two-time Australian GT runner-up is among the first to import Mercedes-Benz’ new GT3 challenger to form a new team to contest the 2016 Australian GT Championship. HYT will be supporting Peter Hackett and his team Eggleston Motorsport in the AMG GT3 for the 2016 season.
