Mahindra to race with fan-designed Formula E livery again in season four

Leave a comment

The Mahindra Formula E team has confirmed it will continue to race with a fan-designed livery through the all-electric series’ fourth season.

Mahindra launched its ‘Driven by Design’ competition ahead of Formula E’s third season, with a livery design created by Spanish fan Adria Haro Jorba adorning its M3Electro car en route to third place in the teams’ championship.

After debuting the new M4Electro at the Goodwood Festival of Speed earlier this year, Mahindra has confirmed it will once again feature a fan livery through its new competition.

“The enthusiasm of our Passioneers during previous #DrivenbyDesign contests encouraged us to give them yet another opportunity to showcase their design flair and creativity,” Mahindra team boss Dilbagh Gill said.

“The entire Mahindra Racing team can’t wait to see what they come up with for the livery our new M4Electro race car.”

As well as having their design feature on Mahindra’s car through season four, the winning fan will also get a visit to the Pininfarina design studio in Turin, Italy, where they will spend a day with a chief livery designer.

More details can be found at drivenbydesign.mahindrafe.com, but all entries must be submitted by September 18.

The new Formula E season kicks off in Hong Kong on December 2.
