Aston Martin Racing (AMR) and Gulf have announced a livery design competition, for one winner to see their design on a pair of the team’s LMGTE Pro class Aston Martin Vantages at the 24 Hours of Le Mans (June 22-23).

Launching the competition as part of the London preview event for next month’s FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) opener at Silverstone the team and their long-term sponsored revealed the chance for winners to add their own design to the list of iconic Gulf branded liveries that have raced at the Circuit de la Sarthe.

“The Gulf branding is so iconic and is strongly associated with Aston Martin Racing,” said AMR’s Jeremy Scoones. “Having the opportunity to be part of not only Gulf and Aston Martin Racing’s motorsport history but also to be part of the world’s most famous race, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, is very exciting and something we are proud to be involved with. It really is a once in a lifetime opportunity.”

“How many of us, over the years, have doodled race car designs on scraps of paper dreaming of them being used?” asked Sam Cork of Gulf. “We are delighted that fans of Gulf and Aston Martin will now have the chance not only to fulfil 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’.”

The overall winner will receive a pair of VIP tickets to attend the 24 Hours of Le Mans to watch their design racing on both the #97 of Darren Turner, Stefan Mucke and Peter Dumbreck and the #99 of Rob Bell, Fred Makowiecki and Bruno Senna.
