Era Motorsport to Run Special Livery Designed by Six-Year-Old Fan at Rolex 24
- 18 January 2021
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., – The 2021 Rolex 24 at Daytona will see the return of Era Motorsport to the IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship, which the team will celebrate by sporting a livery inspired by a design from a young fan from Ottawa, Canada. Six-year-old Owen, who is a third-generation race fan, beat out submissions from all over the world to have his drawing grace the No. 18 Oreca LMP2 car for the season opening event.
The livery contest began in early 2020, when fans were originally invited to submit livery designs for the Petit Le Mans season finale in October. Plans and race schedules changed as COVID spread, and word of the contest grew as countries all over the world shut down, resulting in fans spending more time at home and online.
