During the launch event of Champion’s Collection of Raymond, we candidly asked few questions
TVC: What’s Vision & Purpose behind the new champions collection launch ?
RB: The sole reason to launch Champions collection is our Chairman & Managing Director – Gautam Hari Singhania who is a true champion. The entire collection showcased at the launch is inspired by him. The collection is dynamic with a versatile product mix that showcases the expertise Raymond has in product development and innovation. Mr. Singhania secured a total of 10 podiums in the entire season of Ferrari Challenge Series Europe Championship 2015 and stood 2nd in overall standings in the entire season which is the first ever person to achieve this feat ever in the debut season.
