HISTORY

2018 Winslow BMW of Colorado Springs WRAPsody Design Contest

Inspired by the BMW Art Car collection and the brand’s racing history, Winslow BMW of Colorado Springs partnered with the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb to invite design entries for the ultimate art wrap. The design was highlighted on a BMW i8 Coupe and showcased as the official Pace Car of the Parade of Champions at the conclusion of the 96th Running of the Race to the Clouds on June 24, 2018.

The 2018 Winning Design, Submitted by Franck Rive from Cenac France.

The following excerpt was included with his entry:

"The design is a set of hundred circles and curves which represent the move of the wheels, the air streams around the body, the view of a fuzzy colored car passing by at full speed and the clouds of dust around the car, as a tribute to the time when the road was not entirely tarred. The colors are chosen from the BMW Motorsport logo (dark blue, light blue, red) and a set of Pikes Peak colors (grey as the tar, yellow as the median line of the road, green as the forest, tan as the rocks and the dust, white as the snow, light blue as the sky). I added a personal color, purple as the wine, as a tribute to the city next to which I live, Bordeaux in France where I'm driving my 1972 BMW E3."
