Lucky Edox VIP guests got the ride of their life on August 7 when world champion Miss Geico driver Marc Granet took them on an exciting full throttle ride in the Miss Geico Cigarette Boat during the third annual Michigan City Grand Prix.
As the driver of 210 mph Miss Geico Mystic, one of the most successful boats in offshore powerboat racing history, Marc definitely knew how to give his guests the ride of their life. Serendipitously, the Miss Geico Mystic was actually out on the water during the cigarette boat ride, so the guests had a unique opportunity to view and photograph the powerful turbine-powered craft up close.

Edox Miss Geico Fantasy Adventure
The cigarette boat ride was all part of an exclusive Edox Miss Geico Fantasy Adventure package for select Edox dealers that included two VIP event passes to the Michigan City Grand Prix, a Lamborghini roadster driving experience and exclusive race souvenirs.
An Unfortunate Occurrence
Sadly, the Mystic hit a wave the wrong way during the Michigan City event and had to withdraw from the race due to hull damage. The Geico team expects to have Miss Geico Mystic repaired and back in full racing form before the Edox-Miss Geico Long Island race event, August 26-28.
Edox Miss Geico Sponsorship
Edox is also producing an exclusive yellow and black Miss Geico World Champion Celebration Chronograph in a very limited edition of only 113 pieces, celebrating the famous number on the famous Mystic boat.
Wherever the Miss Geico team goes, Edox will be there as well. Edox was the first to develop a special race timing system that utilizes both satellite and GPS technology to provide a level of accuracy that was previously unheard of in powerboat racing. The famous watchmaker is now the official timekeeper for the Class-1 World Powerboat Championships as well as the official timekeeper of the FIA World Rally Championship.
