TAG Heuer - Geneva International Motorshow 2016

TAG Heuer Geneva International Motorshow 2016

This year at the Geneva International Motorshow 2016, TAG Heuer celebrates over a 100 years of history in the world of motoring.

To celebrate its close links with the world of motor racing and its new F1 partnership with the team now known as the "F1 RED BULL RACING Tag Heuer Team", TAG Heuer presents an exhibition at the Geneva International MotorShow on a unique 1000 m2 stand with five magnificent vehicles on display and a variety of events to cater for the public, visitors and enthusiasts alike:

The new F1 "Red Bull Racing - TAG Heuer RB12" 2016
Red Bull Racing has amassed 4 Double World Champion titles (FIA Constructors and Drivers) in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. However, it was Red Bull Racing's unorthodox approach to the sport which appealed to TAG Heuer, one which is perfectly in line with the Swiss watch brand's new marketing strategy.
