Aston Martin recently ran a competition in conjunction with their works racing team and main sponsor. The task was to design a special livery for their 5th entry in the GT class to wear in the 2013 24 Hours of Le Mans, and the prize is to travel to the race as a VIP and see the livery in action! Of course I entered, as I did with a similar competition for Dunlop last year, and my submission is below.

The brief said to try and include the Gulf Oil colours of blue and orange, but this was not essential. I decided to mix the classic Aston Martin colours of silver and their particular shade of British Racing Green on the sides of the car with the blue and orange running down the centre. The design on the side is the famous Aston Martin wings embossed with a ‘100 Years’ message in the Aston Martin typeface.

The winner is due to be announced in the coming days, so fingers crossed!
