Björk’s WTCR number design? It’s home Swede home of course!
Swede Thed Björk has gone all patriotic with his number design for the 2019 WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup presented by OSCARO.
Keeping the number ‘11’ he used in 2018, the 2017 FIA World Touring Car champion’s creation is based on the blue and yellow of his country’s flag.
The Lynk & Co-powered driver explained: “We made the design together with the team because we decided to have everybody [in the team] a little bit similar. Of course I get the blue and yellow Swedish colours so I feel great.”
WTCR / OSCARO promoter Eurosport Events is inviting drivers to submit their own race number designs for 2019. While they won’t feature on the sides or windscreens of the competing cars in accordance with the WTCR / OSCARO sporting regulations from the FIA, they will have several uses to appeal to fans, including television graphics and autograph session display material.
The new season begins at WTCR Race of Morocco from 5-7 April.
