Motul, Witham Motorsport and Great British Sportscars are keeping open the entry deadline for the livery design competition of the Motul-Edition GBS Zero throughout half term week, in order to give families the chance to submit designs for the exciting hand-built sportscar.

“We been impressed by the standard of entries that we have received, so far, for the livery competition, with some good creative thinking evident,” explained Motul UK Country Manager, Callum Goodland.

“However, we really want to encourage families with kids still at school, to enter the competition, so we hope that, by keeping the competition open during half term week, it will give people the chance to spend a few hours having a crack at putting a design together.”

The competition is simple and is split into two age categories – over and under 16 years old. The overall winner will see their design used on the prototype Motul-Edition GBS Zero, but each category winner will receive a host of Motul goodies and together with their families, will get to go behind-the-scenes with Motul as the company’s guests at the reveal of the car during The Classic at Silverstone on July 30-August 1.

Anyone in the UK can download the car’s blueprint drawings as part of an official entry form on the dedicated competition webpage, which they can then design up and submit (as illustrated by some examples above), for their chance to submit a winning design.

The Motul-Edition GBS Zero, which features a host of Motul-inspired design features unique to this partnership is now making good progress. The chassis is now built and is set up in the special Motul Build Bay in the GBS factory, in Nottinghamshire.

Meanwhile, work has also commenced on the car’s 2.5-litre Ford Duratec engine, which is being built, by renowned motorsport engine builders – Neil Brown Engineering.

From its machining of metal billets, through all of the necessary turning, drilling and assembly processes to the first fill of all lubricants, as the final part of the car’s journey to finished automobile, Motul products are being used throughout. There will be regular updates on the build, and a short film on the car coming together, illustrating Motul’s “Cast, Drilled, Filled” concept, will air in August.
