Aston Martin allows fans to pick livery on GT3Tue, 19 Feb 2013 00:00:00 -0800
Aston Martin announced a contest for North American fans last week that would have the winner design the racing livery for the Aston Martin Vantage GT3 that will compete in the Rolex Grand-Am series. TRG-AMR has two concepts approved already; fans will design the third.
Contestants can log on to TRG's Facebook page page and submit a design. TRG-AMR will select three finalists from those submitted, to be voted on by a panel of judges including Kevin Buckler, CEO of TRG-AMR of North America, John Gaw, managing director of Aston Martin Racing and factory driver Darren Turner. The winner's design will be used and raced in a 2013 Grand-Am event.
This is the first time TRG has invited fans to participate in the design.
“This contest is going to be a once-in-a-lifetime chance for fans, artists, and car lovers,” said Buckler. “We look forward to seeing the creative side of our fans and really kicking this TRG-AMR North America partnership off in a big way. People have been designing and customizing their own cars for years, and we want to give them a chance to take one of the most iconic brands, with one of the most successful sports car race teams, and give it a personalized touch.”
Our design study: The graphic should add at least 50 hp from the ghost of Pontiac.
