Cumbria’s Ric Scott has won Alpinestars and Sahara Force India Formula One Team’s global ‘#Mexifan: Design a Racing Suit for Sergio Perez’ competition.

Depicting an Aztec pyramid against a blazing sunset, the winning design was unveiled by Perez  at the start of the Mexican Grand Prix weekend at a special media event held in front of Sahara Force India’s team garage.

Ric’s creation was chosen from a remarkably high number of entries, with over 250 designs from budding and established designers from as far afield as the Philippines, India and New Zealand, with a huge response from Perez’s native country, Mexico.

The winning #Mexifan suit design celebrates Perez’s home appearance in a very special and hugely anticipated Grand Prix, with the Formula One World Championship returning to motorsports-mad Mexico after a 23-year hiatus.

Perez was so impressed with Ric’s design that Alpinestars and Sahara Force India specially commissioned a set of gloves and racing shoes to complement the suit for this race weekend.
