Motorsports enthusiasts had a chance to meet Chopard ambassador Jackie, one of the greatest drivers in the history of motorsports, who, during his busy career, participated in more than 100 Grand Prix races and won his first victory at the French Grand Prix in 1968, when he was 23 years old. .
Jackie is famous for his prowess in endurance races, especially the “24 Hours of Le Mans” race, which he won 6 times, a record that no one has achieved so far. In addition to his numerous race track victories, Jackie took first place in the Paris-Dakar Rallye in 1983. In 2022, he returned to Saudi Arabia for the third consecutive edition of the Dakar Rally which was held across the desert of Saudi Arabia from January 1 to 14.
Jackie’s passion for motoring led to an interest in the 1000 Milla, in which he participated frequently in the company of his friend Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, Co-President of Chopard. Jackie X is one of the most loyal competitors to the 1000 Milla, in which Chopard has been the world’s sponsor and official time recorder since 1988.
