Jumeirah Group Welcomes Aston Martin to London for Centenary Celebrations
Dubai, July 15 2013: Jumeirah Group, the global luxury hotel company and a member of Dubai Holding, is proud to announce a partnership with celebrated luxury sports car manufacturer Aston Martin, during Aston Martin’s Centenary Week.
Jumeirah sponsored the coveted sports car manufacturer at the 41st Nürburgring 24-hour race in May and will once again partner with Aston Martin for the centenary celebrations, between the 15th and 21st July. Throughout the week at Jumeirah Carlton Tower, a choice of Aston Martin cocktails will be available at The Rib Room Bar & Restaurant, including the Aston Martini and DB9, providing the perfect way to reflect on a day’s car-spotting.
On the afternoon of Friday 19th July, Aston Martin Racing’s stunning Bilstein-liveried V12 Vantage GT3 car will arrive at Jumeirah Carlton Tower. The Jumeirah branded track car will be displayed outside the hotel until Monday morning. Fresh from racing in May at one of the most challenging and demanding endurance races in the world, the ADAC Zurich Nürburgring 24 Hours, the V12 Vantage GT3 represents the pinnacle of GT racing.
During the week, 100 Aston Martins are set to drive in convoy for a Centenary Drive that will see participants make five stops throughout Europe. The drive will conclude in London where drivers and passengers will enjoy hospitality from Jumeirah’s quintessentially British hotels; the Jumeirah Carlton Tower, Jumeirah Lowndes Hotel and Grosvenor House Apartments by Jumeirah Living.
Jumeirah Group’s Vice President for Europe, Derek Picot, said: “We are extremely proud to announce Jumeirah’s Centenary partnership with Aston Martin and our hosting of such an iconic car at Jumeirah Carlton Tower to celebrate this landmark occasion. It’s wonderful to bring a super-car to London that guests and residents can really enjoy”.
