If you know a budding artist, or you are under 16 yourself, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for you to showcase your skills, and design a race suit for the Envision Virgin Racing Formula E team.

Following on from their successful design competition last summer, Envision Virgin Racing are back once again with another chance to win a money-can't-buy prize, run in conjunction with Rob Biddulph, National Geographic Kids and the UN's Global Climate summit COP26, who the team are partnered with.

The winning entrants will not only see their design worn by drivers Robin Frijns and Nick Cassidy during a Formula E race, but will also receive a replica suit to keep for themselves, courtesy of the team's official supplier OMP.

The competition is being run as part of the team's 'Race Against Climate Change' programme, and is looking for the most creative eco-inspired race suit design to showcase on the world's stage.

If you're new to the world of race suit design, don't fear - the team have teamed up with #DrawWithRob to create a tutorial video to walk you through the process step-by-step, so you can focus on the creativity of your design without worry!

On the judging panel will be Peter Johnson, Managing Director of National Geographic Kids, and Envision Virgin Racing’s Managing Director Sylvain Filippi.

Envision Virgin Racing driver Nick Cassidy, who will be one of the drivers wearing the winning design, said: “This is such a great initiative by the team, especially with so many school children and parents in lockdown right now due to the ongoing pandemic. It’s really important for us to use our platform to inspire the next generation to think more about climate change and hopefully this is a fun way to do it, although I have to say I’m a little anxious what Robin and I are going to be dressed in!”

So, if you're looking to get your artwork or your children's artwork seen on the world stage, this is an opportunity not to be missed! The competition is open to all under-16s until February 25, so get those art materials out and get cracking!

  • Shouldn't it be called a Faraday Cage, rather than a race suit.
