The Arrow McLaren SP NTT IndyCar Series team revealed the winning fan Vuse paint schemes that both Pato O’Ward in the No.5 Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet and Felix Rosenqvist in the No.7 Vuse Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet will use for next weekend’s inaugural Music City Grand Prix on the streets of Nashville.
Speaking about winning the competition, Jack LaPilusa commented saying:
Winning the Vuse Design Challenge has me feeling on top of the world. Knowing my design will be racing around Nashville, representing such a prestigious racing team, is a special and surreal feeling. “I studied dozens of different prototype car camouflages, which manufacturers use to hide their upcoming models, and created patterns inspired by some of the more iconic designs. Then I gave it a color combination that McLaren fans – and New Yorkers such as myself – will know and love. The car might be ‘camouflaged,’ but I’m certain you’ll see it coming.
Louise McEwen, Director of Brand & Creative, McLaren Racing commented saying:
“Jack’s design is brilliant and really speaks to what we try to achieve as a design team for our race cars at McLaren Racing. “A design has to be disruptive and stand out, and this does exactly that across the No.5 and No.7 car. It’s been a pleasure to be part of the Vuse Design Challenge alongside the other judges, and be witness to this great opportunity for a fan to bring their talent and creativity to the Arrow McLaren SP team.
Arrow McLaren SP President Taylor Kiel commented saying:
“I speak for the entire team when I say we are pumped to get to Nashville. You can see that excitement is shared by our key partners, as the Vuse Design Challenge is going to create two new liveries for both Arrow and Vuse on the No. 5 and No. 7 cars respectively. “I know Jack is a big fan of Arrow McLaren SP and he has represented his passion with great creativity. It will be as special moment for him to see the design in person in Nashville.”
Jorge Araya, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer for Reynolds commented saying:
“It has been amazing to see the Vuse Design Challenge come to life and inspire our consumers to show off their creativity. “The brand’s passion for art and innovation drove this unique opportunity. We are excited to see Jack’s design hit the track in Nashville.”
