Both Sebastien Bourdais’ No. 11 KVSH Racing and Stefano Coletti’s No. 4 KV Racing Technology Chevrolets will have different liveries heading into this weekend’s Indy Grand Prix of Louisiana (Sunday, 2:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN).
Bourdais’ No. 11 KVSH car, which was adorned in Hydroxycut black and green colors at St. Petersburg, will be in an updated version of the white and green for Mistic eCigarettes this weekend. Mistic posted a picture of the car up to Twitter on Monday, and it is linked below:
Meanwhile Coletti’s No. 4 KV Racing Technology car will feature a new look and new primary sponsor, in the form of local Louisiana-based oil field rental tool company, Variable Bore Rams, Inc. (VBR). VBR President, Hines M. “Chip” Marshall, Jr. is an avid race car fan and owns several race cars, including the Champ Car Will Power drove to victory in the Champ Car World Series finale at Long Beach in 2008.
In February this year, KVRT organized a test day for “Chip” at NOLA Motorsports Park, which allowed him to bring the two cars he owns and test them under the guidance of KVRT co-owner Jimmy Vasser, who retired after the Long Beach event. KVSH Racing driver Bourdais was also given a chance to get back behind the wheel of one of the cars he earned one of his four-consecutive Champ Car World Series titles.
“Variable Bore Rams, Inc. is proud to represent Louisiana and our Energy Sector in this exhilarating Race!” Marshall said in a release. “NOLA has seen its share of firsts, but this is a special time for IndyCar racing and we are grateful, as well as thrilled, to be in the hunt!”
