Wales Rally GB has once again joined forces with Toyota GB to reignite its exciting car livery design competition for young students, with the winning entry being applied to a real-life GT86 rally car.
The highly successful initiative launched in 2017 and now enters its third year.
When liveried, the GT86 will be displayed within the Big Bang showcase located right at the heart of the event’s buzzing Service Park Headquarters in Llandudno where all the teams competing in the UK’s round of the FIA World Rally Championship (3-6 October) are based.
Jointly coordinated by the rally organisers and the Engineering Education Scheme Wales (EESW) on behalf of the Welsh Government, the inspirational contest is open to all primary schools, secondary schools and colleges throughout the UK with individual entry categories for Key Stages 2, 3, 4 and 5.
Students wishing to enter the special livery competition can download an entry form as well as design templates and further details from either www.stemcymru.org.uk or www.walesrallygb.com via the ‘Spectators’ and ‘Big Bang’ navigation. With a closing date of Friday 9 August.
Winners of all four categories will be invited to Llandudno on Thursday 3rd October where they will be presented with rally goody-bag prizes and enjoy a special behind-the-scenes insight into one of the world’s most exciting and technologically advanced sports.
In 2017 the winning design was drawn by 12-year-old Rheinallt Jones (above) from the Ysgol Gyfun Llangefni comprehensive school in Anglesey. Last year’s winner was Kirsty Campbell a 15-year-old GCSE student at Dorin Park Specialist SEN College in Chester. On both occasions the winning livery had a Welsh theme and was unveiled by Toyota GAZOO Racing WRC star Jari-Matti Latvala together with a Welsh Government Minister.
