The Graf von Faber-Castell brand supports the legendary racing event “Spa Six Hours” in Belgium as its main sponsor. The approximately 120 cars, which will be doing their laps as part of the famous “Spa Six Hours Endurance“, are all vintage cars – collector’s items partly from the pre-war period. Historic racing cars will also be starting in many of the other races (www.spasixhours.com).
Count Charles von Faber-Castell, himself a passionate automotive enthusiast, will be on site for the event. As soon as the preparations are done he will be on route to Spa-Francorchamps.
As a tribute to perfect technology, ingenious design and timeless aesthetics this world-class event is completely in line with the spirit of the Graf von Faber-Castell brand: when producing masterful writing instruments, tradition and precise craftsmanship, authenticity and a love for the product are as crucial as in the world of luxury cars. In a completely digitised world, the return to old techniques, values and highest quality is experiencing a veritable renaissance. The longing for deceleration, for the unique increases – as well as for analogue activities to strike a balance.
More and more people rediscover the appeal of handwriting and express their particular appreciation for something or someone with a handwritten thank you or greeting card because interpersonal relationships need special gestures of appreciation and commitment.
The Graf von Faber-Castell for Bentley Collection shows how well the shared values harmonise with each other: it comprises luxury pens and accessories that combine the legendary aura of Bentley with the timeless elegance of Graf von Faber-Castell. The results of the cooperation can be admired in Spa, where the racy writing instruments will be presented in the Graf von Faber-Castell lounge.
