The 2017 Red Bull Global Rallycross season has officially begun and with that Honda and Red Bull have unveiled the new Honda Red Bull OMSE Civic Coupes. Honda and Red Bull collaborated on the design of the new liveries, which feature touches of anodized red and matte finishes within the energy drink’s logo.
Sebastian Eriksson’s No. 93 Honda Civic Coupe pays homage to the traditional OMSE livery with its fast and thrilling navy-blue and ghost-white scheme. The 18-year-old Swedish rookie Oliver Eriksson No. 16 Civic is more aggressive with its navy-blue design that features an abundance of attacking stripes imbedded throughout the car. Temecula, California native Mitchell deJong’s No. 24 car features a more patriotic livery with stars and stripes lining each side of the Civic, which pays tribute to Honda’s first American Rallycross driver.
Oliver Eriksson (No. 16 Honda Red Bull OMSE Civic): “These liveries are lit. We are the biggest team in Red Bull GRC and we represent the best sponsors in the sport [Red Bull, Honda, Bluebeam. Motegi Racing, KN Filters, Bell Helmets, BF Goodrich] and now, I think, we have the best liveries as well.”
Mitchell deJong (No. 24 Honda Red Bull OMSE Civic): “When I first saw the designs I got really excited. For one, I get to have the Stars and Stripes on my Red Bull Honda. I love my country and I also love this team; the fact that I get to drive this cool car just motivates me even more.”
Sebastian Eriksson (No. 93 Honda Red Bull OMSE Civic): “I enjoyed my car design last year, and I enjoy it even more this year. The blue is a bit darker which is refreshing. It makes it look faster and the lines on the back are sharper, which I think also makes it more aggressive.”
