Special Livery for Canadian Superleague Lights GP

It is becoming a team tradition to run a special livery for our home race, and this year is no exception. After the rather dark livery we ran last year, this year’s livery a lot more colorful. It celebrates various anniversaries of significance in Canada happening this year. The most eye catching design element are the dynamic shapes of colour that combine to create a background revealing a maple leaf, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Multiculturalism Policy.

In 1971, Canada is the first country in the world to adopt multiculturalism as an official policy, intending to preserve the cultural freedom of all individuals and provide recognition of the cultural contributions of diverse ethnic groups to Canadian society. For many years following this initial action, multicultural policies do not meet the needs of all immigrants to Canada, but the introduction of the term brings attention to the need for federal coordination to reflect the diversity of Canadian society.Government of Canada

The nose art celebrates the 150th anniversary of British Columbia joining the Confederation as Canada’s sixth province. 2021 also marks the 100th anniversary of the discovery of insulin, one of Canada’s greatest contributions to modern medical history.

Instead of the usual drivers’ names, the livery features the names of Viola Desmond, who challenged racial segregation 75 years ago and Agnes Campbell Macphail, who was elected as the first female Member of Parliament 100 years ago. 

As always, the race will be broadcast live and can be watched here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O3ph1jZkb44
