Tissot gets new MotoGP deal
The FIM may have recently announced “a historic agreement” with TAG Heuer “making the internationally renowned Swiss company the FIM Official Chronograph and Timing Partner” - but the FIM's flagship championship, MotoGP, has announced it will continue with rival Swiss brand Tissot as its Official Timekeeper.

Carmelo Ezpeleta, CEO of Dorna Sports commented: “At Dorna Sports, we are extremely proud of MotoGP's long and productive relationship with Tissot.

"Their long-standing involvement with the world's premier motorcycling championship showcases their dedication to precision and innovation, whilst also allowing the sport, the athletes and the fans to benefit from their years of top level sports timekeeping expertise.”

The MotoGP/Tissot partnership began over 10 years ago.

Omminous photo on the left.Does racing have something to do with a well calibrated stop watch ? Posted by Southerner It has (almost) everything to do with a stop watch. From pole to lap times. From split times to sector times. Distance from rider to rider is judged by time, not a pysical distance. All the feel in the world on a motorcycle is useless if you cannot put up the times. If timing was not important they wouldn't use it :D

Omminous photo on the left.Does racing have something to do with a well calibrated stop watch ? I guess it does. Urban myth:The Swiss sent a spindle to a Japanese outfit and asked them to try and replicate it.A week later the piece was returned. After much microscopic scrutiny,the Swiss discovered the Japs had 'linebored' the spindle. Nice one Casey !!! Switch from the Dolomites to Mt.Fujiyama. I guess the timing devices do rule. Maybe Yamaha should engage Seiko for some sponsorship.
