Privileged Priaulx explains WTCR number design
Andy Priaulx’s racing number design for the 2019 WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup presented by OSCARO has left the Lynk & Co-powered racer feeling “very privileged”.
Priaulx, the winner of the FIA World Touring Car Championship on three occasions, will carry number 111 on his Cyan Racing-prepared Lynk & Co 03 TCR, while his number design features a colour of great significance.
“The colour green signifies my homeland, Guernsey, in the Channel Islands,” said Priaulx. “The drivers at Cyan Racing have chosen a joint design for the team and I’m very proud to have number 111, three ‘1s’ for my three world championships.”
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.
