United Autosports Audi R8 LMS ultra 2013 livery competition winner

By Johan Laubscher

During 2012 United Autosports increased their McLaren efforts and many thought this would bring an end to their Audi entries. However to the delight of Audi fans the team announced that they would continue using their Audi R8 LMS ultra in 2013. Along with this announcement United Autosports also opened an online livery competition. They offered fans the opportunity to submit livery designs. The chosen livery would be used on the UA Audi R8 LMS ultra during 2013 and the designer of the chosen livery would be treated to a trip to the United Autosports facilities and receive team merchandise.

Today United Autosports announced the winner and the winning livery. Congratulations to Arron Earnshaw, 27, from Burnley, Lancashire, UK. His livery design depicts a tasteful collection of the traditional white, blue and red United Autosports colours, as seen below. The new design will be seen on the UA Audi R8 LMS ultra at its first 2013 event, the Bathurst 12 Hour in just a few weeks.
