The ORECA-Matmut team has officially unveiled their Peugeot 908 car to be raced in the Le Mans Series this season and for the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
It was unveiled one day before its first public test at the Paul Ricard Circuit in La Castellet, France. The inspiration for the livery was taken from the works of Dutch abstract artist, Piet Mondrian. “The team has retained its own visual identity in the spirit of the Dutch painter, Piet Mondrian, a pioneer in the field of abstract art,” said an ORECA statement.
“While the overall concept is in keeping with the visual identity, Hugues de Chaunac’s men wanted to innovate by modernising [sic] it, and came up with a graphic evolution based around the chrome roof for this livery, which provides an interpretation of Mondrian’s work worthy of the 21st century.”
Olivier Panis and Nicolas Lapierre will drive the car during the Le Mans Series season in the LMP1 class and will be joined by Loic Duval during the Paul Ricard test and at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
