Dunlop Launch Livery Competition For Le Mans

1 Mins read

Have you ever wanted to see your artwork screaming past at over 200 miles per hour?

Now is your chance.

Tyre manufacturer Dunlop have launched its European Livery Competition – a chance to design the livery that will adorn the factory-supported JMW Motorsports Aston Martin Vantage GT2 at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in June.

The competition is open to both amateur and professional artists from twelve European countries, including the UK and Ireland with four entries from each nation being put through a semi-final when an online vote will whittle the field down to five finalists. The winning design will be unveiled on media day ahead of the 24 Hours of Le Mans in front of the world’s press before taking to the track for a week of action driven by Rob Bell and Tim Sugden (pictured left to right) with Richard Westbrook culminating in the legendary endurance race on June 12/13.

The winning designer will also receive a “substantial” cash prize and a trip to the Centro Stile of Pininfarina – perhaps the greatest car designers in the world.

“Ultimately, we’re looking for a creative design that catches the eye and stands out for the crowds and also reflects Dunlop’s winning pedigree at such an iconic event as the Le Mans 24 Hours,” said James Bailey of Dunlop UK. “We know there are some fantastic artists in the UK and Ireland – whether already established or coming through the ranks at various schools and colleges.

To enter the competition visit http://livery-competition.dunlop.eu/ and download the templates, logos and the full brief. Anyone can design a livery, but can only enter the competition if resident in the participating countries.

“It’s the chance of a lifetime for one artist to really show their creative flair in front of a global audience and we very mush hope the 2010 winner will come from the UK,” adds Bailey.
