At the opening round of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) this weekend, the Six Hours of Silverstone, Aston Martin Racing and long-time team partner Gulf are launching a competition to design the livery for the team’s #97 Vantage GTE as it competes at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in June.
As well as seeing their design brought to life, the winner and a friend will also attend Le Mans as VIP guests of Aston Martin Racing and Gulf to watch the #97 car – driven by Darren Turner (GB), Stefan Mücke (D) and Peter Dumbreck (GB) – race around the famous La Sarthe circuit.
The competition invites anyone of any age and artistic ability to go towww.mygulfastonmartinracingcar.com and download the image of the blank Vantage GTE. Regardless of whether entrants choose to use colouring pencils or a professional graphic design programme, the judges will be looking for originality and creativity.
The entries will be judged by works team drivers Darren Turner, Stefan Mücke, Frédéric Makowiecki and Bruno Senna and, as well as the main prize for the winner, runners up will win a host of Gulf and Aston Martin Racing goodies.
Sam Cork, Global Brand Manager at Gulf comments: “How many of us, over the years, have doodled race car designs on scraps of paper dreaming of them being used? We are very happy that fans of Gulf and Aston Martin will now have the chance not only to fulfill this ambition, but also to actually come with us to Le Mans in June to see their dream become reality.
“I’m sure that it will really capture people’s imagination and I can’t wait to see the designs. We’re also going out to schools to see what the younger generation has to offer and we’ll be offering some special prizes for the best entries from ‘Junior Designers’.”
Jeremy Scoones, Head of Partnerships at Aston Martin Racing adds: “Since 2008, Gulf-liveried Aston Martins have become an iconic feature of the Le Mans 24hrs. The opportunity for one of our fans to write a chapter in this special history by designing the livery of our car is very exciting and we can’t wait to see the results.”
Gulf has been a partner of Aston Martin Racing for the past five years and, during this time, Gulf-liveried Aston Martins have enjoyed victory at Le Mans in the GT1 Category; GT and Outright Le Mans Series and WEC race wins, as well as Driver and Team Le Mans Series championship titles.
This year, the team will contest the FIA World Endurance Championship with four Aston Martin Vantage GTEs. The 24 Hours of Le Mans is the third round of the highly competitive championship and will see the team running five cars.
