Andretti Autosport driver and Lee Davis partner in no. 03 Luna-C Clothing Lamborghini for Watkins Glen
June 25, 2014 (Johns Creek, Georgia) – Luna-C Clothing, makers of automobile influenced, technology infused and racing inspired clothing, will make a return to the racetrack this weekend as Scott Speed and Lee Davis will team up in the no. 03 Luna-C Clothing / Lamborghini Dallas Gallardo LP 570-4 this weekend at Watkins Glen International.
Speed and Luna-C Clothing will be promoting #SpeedToNYC during the weekend, highlighting the Volkswagen Rallycross NY event in New York at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on July 20 th.As part of the promotion, a Grand Prize Winner – selected from someone using the #SpeedToNYC hashtag before July 15 th – will receive an all-expenses paid trip for two to Volkswagen Rallycross NY.
For Speed, the former Formula 1 and NASCAR Sprint Cup driver, this weekend’s Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America race will mark his first experience in a sports car – not to mention a vastly different experience than his regular ride for Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross in Global Rallycross. Speed currently leads the Global Rallycross championship after winning the first two races of the year in Barbados and Austin.
“I am really excited to drive the Lamborghini,” said Speed. “I have run a number of times in a Cup car at the Glen, but I have never run the full circuit so I am definitely looking forward to that! It’s very cool to drive for a company like VW who has such great connections to Lamborghini that give me the opportunity to do this race. It will be a lot of fun race with my man Lee and to see what he’s got. I’m sure we will have a lot of fun! Either way, we’ll be the best-dressed guys out there!”
Davis is no stranger to racing or the Lamborghini Super Trofeo series. Partnered with Ryan Eversley, Davis was victorious in the first Super Trofeo race at Lime Rock and also earned a podium finish at the 2013 Rolex 24 at Daytona.
“This came together very quickly, and if not for the efforts of multiple parties, it would never have happened!” said Davis. “I can’t wait to get back in that Lamborghini! It’s such an awesome car, and it will be a lot of fun to drive at the Glen. And I’m excited to drive with Scott – not many folks have the opportunity to drive with someone with Formula One credentials, so it’s a special opportunity. I’d like to thank Tristan Herbert and Lamborghini, Volkswagen, Lamborghini of Dallas, Andretti Autosport, and the whole Luna-C team which includes Ryan Eversley who will be working with me this weekend, as usual. Luna-C is the official ‘After Hours Clothing Provider’ for Andretti Autosport, and we’re proud to support them, Scott and Tanner Foust in their Global Rallycross Volkswagens this season.”
Luna-C Clothing apparel will be on site during the weekend at Watkins Glen International, allowing spectators the opportunity to see the technologies and fabrics used in the clothing worn by Speed, Davis & Eversley – including coldblack® and energear™.
The first Lamborghini Super Trofeo race will be held on Friday, June 27 at 4:10 PM ET, with the second on Saturday, June 28 at 5:30 PM ET.
