KnightHawk reveal stunning graphics for Le Mans - 23rd April

KnightHawk Racing has commissioned an all-new graphic design for it's MG Lola 675 LMP, and this new design will début on the team's prototype at the Le Mans Practice Session.

The MG Lola was delivered to the team in mid-February painted high gloss black - one of KnightHawk's traditional three colors. As the Sebring event was rapidly approaching, the team applied graphics to the car adding the team's two other colors - orange and silver. Working within a narrow window, the team did it's best to have the graphics depict the team's theme - a soaring nighthawk.

After the Sebring event, and with more design time available, the team enlisted the design services of Dean Thompson at Fineline Signs and Graphics in Colorado. What you see here is the stunning result of Thompson's creative concept.

"There is nothing "cookie cutter" about what we do at Fineline - every single job has its own characteristics which makes each job completely custom," says Thompson. "In working with KnightHawk, we developed a concept that fulfilled their vision - while staying within the requirements of a vinyl application. This is never an easy thing to do, so the relationship we build with the client is vital to the success of each project."

"We wanted to convey a unique design - one that might make the fans say ' Wow - did you see that!' adds team co-owner Steve Knight. The design that Dean has created beautifully depicts the teams "nighthawk" motif, and with the use of reflective orange and silver vinyl - the car should really stand out in the dark, especially at Le Mans. It's going to be a lot of fun to "wing" this car around the track!"

"We certainly hoped for a very eye-catching design scheme - and Dean Thompson and Fineline have certainly delivered," remarks co-owner Mel Hawkins. "It symbolizes the theme of KnightHawk Racing very well. I hope the fans like it, and to be honest with you - I can't wait to see it reflect at night!"

That logo and art work does look the biz. One reallywon't miss the car steaming around the circuit. Can't wait to see it in the dark.

I agree - looks F.A.B. Have you mailed the team? Thought I would today and ask them to post their thoughts on Le Mans. :D

In actual fact why don't those that have interest in Knighthawk ask Steve & Mel for their comments?

if the car at Sebring is anything to go by, there aren't too many sponsored Logos to go on anyway.

On the Snetterton test, do we know when they are actually there? :D

S & R: OK, I'll try again. When and where are the MG "Sport & Racing" cars testing? :D Answers such as "No Comment or can't tell will not be tollerated" :D

Not searched for it, as I wouldn't travel to Snetterton. But I know the information could be found if desired on the "Sportscar" sites.

Anyway they are off to Le Mans for pre qualifying for the 5th May.
