At just over 40 years old, Harold Primat has become one of the most versatile drivers of his generation. This nephew of the famous motorcyclist Claude Vigreux, the Franco-Swiss driver – who’s been coming to Crans-Montana since the age of ten – started his career karting, before joining several driving schools in France and Great Britain. He was pleased to move into endurance in 2003, and take part in the most prestigious races such as Le Mans 24 Hours and Daytona 24 Hours. His results match his talent. His steady steering and tactical intelligence give him credibility which is unanimously recognised in the world of racing.
After more than twenty years in motor sport, both Formula and in particular endurance racing, Harold retired from the sport in 2015 to dedicate himself to family life and other activities. Between travels, Harold Primat comes to recharge his batteries in Crans-Montana and to enjoy the numerous activities which the region offers. Taking part in numerous sports, he’s particularly keen on golf, which he is also keen to play on Crans-Montana’s courses.
