Beijing, March 23, 2017: Jackie Chan DC Racing x Jota Sport has unveiled its spectacular new livery for the 2017 FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC), with an exquisite design reflecting the team’s Chinese heritage and heaped with cultural symbolism.

The striking look for this season’s formidable Oreca 07 – Gibson LMP2 racing car was presented at a press conference in Beijing attended by David Cheng and Ho-Pin Tung. The magnificent and unmistakably-Chinese insignia was created by students of design from the University of Wuhan Institute of Design and Sciences following a campus-wide competition.

In Chinese culture, clouds are often referred to as ‘auspicious clouds’, representing the heavens. They are considered lucky because the Chinese word for ‘cloud’ has a similar pronunciation as ‘luck’ or ‘fortune’. The colour scheme too is full of positive Chinese symbolism, with red bringing good luck, black associated with youth and power, while gold – or yellow – considered the most prestigious colour and representing heroism.

The pair of Jackie Chan DC Racing x JOTA Sport LMP2 racing cars, resplendent in their new livery, will break cover at the FIA WEC Prologue in Monza, Italy next month, where drivers David Cheng, Ho-Pin Tung, Tristan Gommendy, Oliver Jarvis, Alex Brundle and Thomas Laurent, together with new partners JOTA Sport, will begin their quest for the 2017 FIA WEC LMP2 title.

With an enviable driver line-up, experienced and professional team, and a unique Chinese-inspired new livery, the only clouds on the horizon for Jackie Chan DC Racing are thoroughly auspicious ones.
