I was recently comissioned by the Panoz organisation to create a classic style livery for their new Panoz Avezzano race car which will race in the Pirelli World Challenge in 2017.
We explored a number of avenues including recreating the original Panoz livery, which I designed way back in 1995, but in the end we went for a design which referenced the Red and White of later cars including the LMP1.
More recently, I had designed the 2014 DeltaWing livery for Panoz.
24-hour sports car endurance races are as much a matter of survival as competition – an adage even more accurate this week, as DeltaWing Racing Cars prepares to battle more than 60 fellow competitors in the inaugural event of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, the Rolex 24 at Daytona.
A host of new elements have made the virtually nonexistent off season an interesting one for the DeltaWing team: a new livery, designed by Andy Blackmore Design, a new tire (the Prototype class runs exclusively on Continental tires), a new television network (all TUDOR Championship races will be on the FOX network) and of course, the new series itself. With the former American Le Mans Series and Grand-Am series now united, the Prototype class has grown to a whopping 18 cars.
