ASTON MARTIN RACING UNVEILS WINNING LE MANS GULF LIVERY

Le Mans, 18 June 2013 – Aston Martin Racing and Gulf have unveiled the winner of their livery design competition. 031_AMR_WEC2013_Rnd3_Le_Mans_24Hour_100233

The design, inspired by the change in atmosphere as day gives way to night during the 24 Hours of Le Mans, was created by Jonathan Wesley from Kettering in the UK and will adorn the #97 Vantage GTE throughout race week.

Darren Turner (GB), Stefan Mücke (D) and Peter Dumbreck (GB), drivers of the #97 Vantage GTE, selected Jonathan’s design from the hundreds of entries received. He will now attend the race weekend as a VIP guest of Gulf to see his winning design compete in the 90th 24 Hours of Le Mans.

“I have been excited ever since I got the news that my design had been chosen,” comments Jonathan. “I loved the chance of being able to design a Gulf Aston Martin, but it’s already such a classic livery that I was wondering what I could do.

“I was just sketching a few thoughts out and I liked the idea of the car being a different colour on both sides. I thought about the Gulf corporate colours – dark blue, light blue, orange and white – and I came up with the idea of ‘daylight to dusk’, which to me is the most exciting part of the race.

“So it moves from the white with the broad orange stripe dividing things to the dark blue of the night. The orange and blue lines represent the streaks that you often see in photos of the cars at night and the whole design sort of summed up the essence of Le Mans to me.”

Gulf, which has partnered Aston Martin Racing for five years and has signed a further three-year deal, ran the livery competition to allow fans to participate in the team’s most ambitious Le Mans campaign, marking the centenary year of Aston Martin.

Sam Cork, Global Brand Manager at Gulf explained: “Gulf has been responsible for some extremely iconic motorsport liveries and we wanted to give fans the opportunity to play their part. To design the livery for a Gulf Aston Martin, racing at Le Mans in the brand’s centenary year, is really something quite special.

“This livery will enter Gulf and Aston Martin Racing’s history books and Jonathan should be extremely proud to be the winner, as we had hundreds of entries from all over the world. The design is excellent. It is everything we hoped for. We can’t wait to see it take to the track for the most exciting endurance race of the year.”

The #97 car is one of five Aston Martin Racing Vantage GTEs competing in the 24-hour race, but the only one to carry the competition-winning design. The car will first be seen on the Circuit de la Sarthe at the first free practice session on Wednesday 19 June at 16:00 hrs.

Race Season is Back

131247_543453585676544_1472513243_oTeam Cadillac hit the Streets of St Petersburg this weekend for rounds 1 and 2 of the Pirelli World Challenge race season on a quest to defend our 2012 Championship. We faced some stiff competition from new entries from Porsche and Audi and the always fast team from Volvo.

The first race saw Team Cadillac start in the 5th and 6th spots and when the checkered flag waived Johnny O’Connell (#3) moved up to 4th and Andy Pilgrim (#8) moved to the 5th spot. After the race it was determined that the Porsche failed the tech inspection with a front splitter that didn’t conform to series rules and it was disqualified moving Team Cadillac Driver’s to 3rd and 4th positions and our first podium of the year.

Race 2 began with Johnny O’Connell starting in the 5th spot and teammate Andy Pilgrim in the 7th spot. The Volvos jumped out to an early lead closely followed by Audi (Sofronas) and Porsche (Dalziel). As the race progressed the Porsche of Dalziel sat in 3rd spot when he had an on track incident causing a flat tire and he dropped from contention. Then pole sitter and race leader Alex figge (Volvo) had brake and tire problems and dropped out of the running. The race finished with Audi in 1st followed by Volvo and Cadillac (O’Connell) providing Cadillac it’s second podium of the 2013 season. Overall a solid start to the season against a very competitive field.

Team Cadillac takes to the track next April 19-22 on the Streets of Long Beach. The race will be streamed live @ world-challengetv.com.
