Aston Martin and Gulf are launching a competition at the Six Hours of Silverstone, which opens the FIA World Endurance Championship season. Partners for the past five years, four Aston Martin Vantage GTE's will race the FIA World Endurance Championship, but one special car will be part of the competition.
The #97 car will compete at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in June and will be the subject of a competition where contestants of all ages are encouraged to send in submissions whether done by hand or on a computer by downloading the image of the blank Vantage GTE. Each submission will be based on creativity and originality.
Not only will the winners design be featured on the #97 car, but they and a friend will also be able to attend Le Mans as a VIP of Aston Martin Racing and Gulf to watch the car (driven by Darren Turner, Stephan Mucke and Peter Dumbreck) race the La Sarthe circuit.
The judges of the submissions will be none other than Darren Turner, Stephan Mucke, Frederic Makowiecki and Bruno Senna. While not everyone can will the main prize, runners up will be able to win Gulf and Aston Martin Racing goodies.
