CHALLENGE CHRONO II Leon
Trendsetting Men’s Lifestyle Magazine “LEON” and Leading Swiss Luxury Watchmaker “CVSTOS”
Team up, Aiming to Take the Top Spot in SUPER GT.
LEON RACING sponsored by the men’s lifestyle magazine “LEON” once again announces its participation in SUPER GT SERIES for the 2015 season with Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3. This will be the third season for LEON RACING since it announced to enter the SUPER GT SERIES in 2013. It took 2nd place on the podium at the Round 4 SUGO Race last year, falling just short of a first win. This season, it is looking to claim a long-awaited first victory as well as the series champion. Led by team owner and supervisor Daisuke Endo, the matte black colored machines will run with the same car number 65. Haruki Kurosawa will continue to be the first driver as in the previous season, and Naoya Gamou will join as the second driver, young but bringing his racing experience at 24 Hours Nürburgring and F3 to the team. With this solid structure in place, the team aims to capture its first victory and series champion. Since its foundation, LEON magazine has focused on the field of the automobile with more pages featuring automobile-related articles compared to other general men’s magazines. Because entering a supercar race is like a dream or admiration for LEON readers, LEON has been participating in the SUPER GT from 2012 to realize their dream. LEON RACING was organized in the 2013 season and has entered the GT300 class races. In this 2015 season, LEON will work in partnership with the Swiss luxury watchmaker CVSTOS to launch “LEON×CVSTOS.” CVSTOS logos will be designed on the hood, rear wing, sides and other locations, with an illustration of the tourbillon movement on the roof to create an overall style with speed. As competition in the GT300 class gets tougher, LEON RACING will usher in a new phase of luxury sports.
