Tumi, the lifestyle and travel brand, will become the official luggage partner of world-famous race team McLaren Racing and luxury high-performance supercar company, McLaren Automotive.
Tumi and McLaren plan to release a luggage collection in late 2020 that brings together the shared values of both brands.
Starting with the 2020 season, the McLaren FI team will be equipped with Tumi’s travel essentials to accompany and assist the team in their travel around the globe.
McLaren Racing competes in the FIA Formula 1 World Championship with Carlos Sainz and Lando Norris, and the NTT IndyCar Series with Patricio O’Ward and Oliver Askew. Since entering its first Formula 1 race in 1966, McLaren has won 20 Formula 1 world championships and more than 180 grand prix. It has also won the Le Mans 24 Hours and the Indy 500 three times.
“It’s an exciting step for Tumi to venture into this collaboration with McLaren. At Tumi, we pride ourselves on truly understanding our customers, as well as having the foresight to develop products that meet their evolving travel needs,” said Rob Cooper, president of Tumi. “We believe that partnering with McLaren to bring their cutting edge, lightweight technologies to a collaborative collection will support Tumi’s mission of providing high-performance solutions and innovative products that optimize the journey,” he said.
More details about the collaboration will be revealed next year.
