#YellowSquad unveils striking new livery.

#YellowSquad has unveiled its livery for the 2020 rallycross season, which will be seen in both the RX2 International Series and RallyX Nordic Supercar Lites category this year.

The YellowSquad is a junior rallycross team formed by brothers Kevin and Timmy Hansen in February 2019, with one aim in mind to deliver a platform for aspiring rallycross drivers to learn the skills needed to progress up the ladder towards the World Rallycross Championship.

The team's livery has been created by top motorsport designer Adrien Paviot, who is best known for designing the helmets of Formula 1 stars: Charles Leclerc, Romain Grosjean, and Pierre Gasly, plus WRC champions Sébastien Loeb and Sébastien Ogier.

Paviot also designed the livery for Loeb's record-breaking Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak car, and is responsible for designing Team Hansen's World RX cars.

“The car looks absolutely amazing. I think Adrien has done a great job on the design and making something that stands out. In my opinion, it's the best RX2 car I've ever seen, even though I raced a car in the class myself! So it's a very big compliment," said Kevin Hansen, #Yellow Squad Team Principal.

“It's very aggressive, it stands out a lot with the heavy bright yellow matte finish that we have, with shiny elements on top of that. I think it's great for the partners, they get great exposure, and on top of that, there are new matching suits, gloves, and shoes from Sparco for the drivers.

“Everything looks amazing next to the car and I can't wait to see the drivers wearing their Sparco gear and jumping into these cars, matching everything together. I'm sure we look the fastest, and we'll also try to be the fastest on track this weekend!”

Norwegian Henrik Krogstad and Czech teenager Dan Skocdopole will race the cars during the 2020 season, with the attention to detail demonstrated on the team's livery symbolizing the highly professional approach #YellowSquad are taking to its first Supercar Lites campaign.

"I think the livery looks awesome! It's the first time I've had a full-on livery with matching suit, shoes, and everything," Krogstad said. "I'm really looking forward to racing with #YellowSquad while sporting the team colours from head to toe!"

Dan Skocdopole shares his opinion on the striking new #YellowSquad livery: “The car design looks pretty slick, hopefully, the aesthetics translate into an action-packed and fast car throughout 2020. Höljes here we come!”

The new #YellowSquad livery will make its first on-track debut this Thursday when the RallyX Nordic Magic Weekend at Höljes begins with a double-header to get the 2020 programme underway.
