Driving the unique-liveried Vantage GTE will be Darren Turner, Stefan Mucke, and Peter Dumbreck. According to Wesley, the design was inspired by the four Gulf corporate colors arranged from lightest to darkest, with the right side of the vehicle painted white and the left side painted dark blue which symbolizes the endurance race’s change from daylight to dusk.
