Cadillac has revealed the liveries for the three V-LMDh race cars that will make its competition debut at the Rolex 24 at Daytona.
The designs are highlighted by three V-Series colors on black backgrounds. Chip Ganassi Racing will operate the gold and blue-colored Cadillacs, while Action Express Racing will have a red-colored entry carrying primary sponsorship from Whelen Engineering.
The Nos. 01 and 31 cars will contest the full IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season, with the No. 2 Cadillac destined for the FIA World Endurance Championship although will also be present at the Rolex 24 as the No. 02 car.
“Cadillac is ready to compete against the very best in North America and internationally — including one of the world’s toughest races, the 24 Hours of Le Mans,” said Cadillac Global Vice President Rory Harvey.
“As Cadillac builds toward an all-electric future, the all-new V-LMDh furthers our dedication to exploring new advanced performance technologies.”
Sebastien Bourdais and Renger van der Zande will drive the No. 01 Cadillac and will be joined by six-time IndyCar champion Scott Dixon for the WeatherTech Championship season opener, with the No. 31 AXR-run entry to be driven by Pipo Derani, Alexander Sims and Jack Aitken.
Earl Bamber, Alex Lynn and Richard Westbrook will co-drive the No. 2 Cadillac in WEC competition. The No. 2 pays homage to the first Cadillac entry at Le Mans in 1950, Briggs Cunningham’s “Le Monstre.”
“From an aesthetic point of view, the LMDh regulations allowed us to create a vision for the car that is clearly Cadillac,” said Chris Mikalauskas, lead exterior creative designer, Cadillac.
“And that’s really exciting for fans and for people who are true enthusiasts, every car is unique.”
