Craft-Bamboo Racing’s LMP3 race cars will bring Lightning McQueen and Jackson Storm to the real world.
Disney-Pixar’s Cars franchise has teamed up with the race team for the first two rounds of the new FRD LMP3 Series. Craft-Bamboo’s two Ligier JS P3 race cars will feature specially designed Cars liveries, with the number-95 prototype taking on the guise of Lightning McQueen. Joining it will be the number-20 car, appearing like Jackson Storm, the film series’ newest rival to McQueen.
Not only will the two cars wear Cars-themed liveries, the Craft-Bamboo Racing pit garage will be getting the Cars treatment as well. Each side of the garage will correspond to their Lightning McQueen and Jackson Storm counterparts.
The FRD LMP3 Series is a brand new prototype series in China and will get kick off for the first time on June 30 at the Zhejiang International Circuit in China. The series will then head to Shanghai on July 29.
“We are proud to welcome the ‘Cars’ franchise to Craft-Bamboo Racing for the inaugural round of the FRD LMP3 Series. We are very happy to work with Disney-Pixar and hope that fans all across China will enjoy the collaboration,” said Richard Coleman, CEO of Craft-Bamboo Racing. “The sight of the fully decorated Ligiers is striking and should make for a very exciting first two rounds of the season as we compete for our first victories in the FRD LMP3 Series.”
