Using the Castrol scheme has little to do with being a Ford and a lot to do with the team's main sponsor being Castrol. I don't think they're required to go drag out an Emil Frey Jag, and pay $1m to get it into IMSA just to celebrate their long association with American sports car racing.

A little info on the IMSA bop process.

Interesting how much input the manufacturers have had in the process.

well it seems Core got in on the IMSA throwbacks too, although it makes it look less like a street Nissan than the ESM livery did. But it does look like the old factory Nissan GTP cars, and other Datsun/Nissans

It also harks back to the last Nissan retro with the LMP1 at Le Mans. Good times.

What?

Very true rendition of Nissan livery in IMSA, and ACO. I like it.

late '80 - early '90 blue/white/red livery is cool; a bit an unlikely tribute by a team that basically has any tie with nissan...

Well the engine in the back is a good start at a tie-in I'd say.

Imo the Core 'Nissan' is by far the best retro livery out there (at this point) and I hope the 'Ooww's-and-Aaww's are so overwhelming, Bennett will consider running the second car as well!

Probably about the same as ByKolles. They just buy/lease the engine iirc. I wish it were more than that but it's unlikely. At least they get to run the retro colors, that looks nice.

Agree, this year is just a retro-tribute dictated mood so everything is legit;

but honestly core has the same tie with nissan as an average joe who bought an used nissan sentra. That's why it's quite weird to see a team tributing something that actually never shared for real.


I could understand to see at example ferrari 488 risi with the red/yellow momo themed livery because of their long history with ferrari; it's just core running with a classic nissan livery that looks strange to me. But as I said, everything is legit.
