Crans Montana renew partnership with Harold Primat

The Crans Montana in Switzerland will continue its partnership with Aston Martin works driver Harold Primat in 2009.

The Swiss-based racing driver, who won the petrol-class of the Le Mans 24 Hours last year, has been an ambassador of the resort for the past two seasons and will continue that role during a 2009 campaign which promises to be his most exciting yet.

Primat will race an LMP1 prototype for Aston Martin Racing in the five-round Le Mans Series and at the world's most famous motor race, the Le Mans 24 Hours, as the prestigious British marque look for their first outright victory at La Sarthe since their maiden triumph 50 years ago.

Crans Montana, which is situated on a plateau in the heart of the Swiss Alps, boasts top-of-the-range golf courses and ski slopes as well as first class accommodation and facilities. It has hosted the Omega European Masters, the Tour de Suisse as well as the Ski World Cup and Caprices Festival.

The resort has a fresh corporate image for 2009, with a new look company logo and website and will celebrate its renewed partnership with Primat by hosting an Aston Martin training camp in May where Harold will be joined by his fellow works drivers as they prepare physically for Le Mans.

"I'm very happy that this mutually beneficial relationship will continue this year," said Harold. "Each year I spend a lot of time at Crans Montana as a key part of my physical preparation for the new season. It's a beautiful location and has massive potential to host training camps for all kinds of sporting disciplines due to the resort's fantastic outdoor activities."
