Key 2017 WEC Liveries Revealed

AF Corse, TDS, DC Racing all show their colours

The week of the WEC Prologue at Monza has arrived, and the teams and drivers are putting together their final preparations before the official running starts.

In light of that, three teams have shown off their paint schemes for the season in the run up to the trip to Italy.

DC Racing opts for a Chinese theme

Jackie Chan DC Racing’s Oreca 07s will feature liveries reflecting the team’s national culture.

The new scheme was created by students attending the University of Wuhan Institute of Design and Sciences as part of a competition.

The car features clouds, which in China are considered lucky and represent the heavens. The colours themselves are also symbolic of Chinese culture, with the colours red, gold and yellow.

AF Corse creates a throwback

AF Corse meanwhile is going to party like it’s 1947 this year, with its 488 GTEs done up like the marque’s first sportscar – the Ferrari 125S – as part of the celebrations for its 70th anniversary year.

Modern solution for TDS Racing

And finally, TDS Racing’s Oreca for Matthieu Vaxivière, François Perrodo and Manu Collard is set to sport a livery designed by Racing and Emotion, which created Fred Sausset’s SRT41 livery for Le Mans last year.

You can see the resemblance to the adapted Morgan LMP2’s livery clearly.
