Flying Lizard Motorsports Reveal Special Le Mans Liveries

1 Mins read

For the team's first ever two car entry for the Le Mans 24 Hours the Flying Lizard Motorsports Porsches will run a special Troy Lee Designs livery celebrating the marque's history at Le Mans.

The No.80 Porsche 911 GT3 RSR, the team's GTE Pro class entry to be driven by Joerg Bergmeister, Patrick Long and Lucas Luhr will run in a predominantly metallic orange livery with the no.81 GTE Am car running in metallic blue. Both liveries are anchored with a deeper shade of blue.

The colours form the backdrop for a design featuring all the names and national flags of all 28 drivers who have won the 24 hours at the wheel of a Porsche starting with 1970 winners Hans Hermann and Richard Attwood.

“I started with the vibrant colours of the drivers’ country flags,” said California based Lee. “Imagining how they could be put to life on a racecar, as if they were blowing by on the front straight. Once we had the theme, we focused on making it come to life in 3D. The challenge was to really show off the depth and movement of these amazing cars, while maintaining the integrity of the Porsche design.”

Flying Lizard VP of Marketing, Jennifer Hart added; “we worked with Troy’s team for several months to finalize the concept and design. The livery is a combination of candy paint overlaid with vinyl. The vinyl was custom-tailored to each Porsche and applied at our shop in Sonoma by Iconography Studios. Each car has a clear coat to protect the graphics. We are thrilled with the end result; the Porsches are uniquely beautiful and seem to be almost humming with energy.”

“We are proud that Flying Lizard chose to honor the 28 drivers who have stood on the top step of the podium for Porsche at Le Mans,” said Porsche Motorsport North America President Jens Walther. “This design exemplifies the effort that Flying Lizard puts into every aspect of their race preparation, and shows why Lizard drivers have won the American Le Mans Series GT championship for the last three years.”

The liveries will be officially unveiled at scrutineering in the week before the Le Mans 24 Hours on June 11-12.
