Red Lobster took sponsorship to a new level in 1983-85 IMSA GTP competition, when it painted up the No. 25 March 83G of Kenper Miller and David Cowart to resemble a huge lobster, complete with giant claws, a head, back, legs and tail. The iconic paint scheme on the car fielded by Jack Deren Automotive Racing Enterprises of Carbondale, Pa. was one of the first examples of engaging racing as a marketing platform. Race fans fondly remember it as one of the best. “When we did that paint scheme, we were told that we were probably the first to use the entire car’s shape as a logo, rather than painting logos on a car,” said Deren, who doubled as team manager and crew chief. “So it’s iconic.” Miller and Cowart’s association with Red Lobster goes back to 1980, when they painted a Red Lobster logo on the side of their BMW M1 for the 12 Hours of Sebring.
When the team upgraded to the March 82G prototype for IMSA GTP competition for the 1982 Rolex 24 At Daytona, they added red stripes with blue trim, making the white car one of the most distinctive GTPs on the grid.
For 1983, March upgraded to the 83G chassis. When Deren first saw the new car, one thought quickly came to mind. “I remember thinking that the two big front fenders stuck out like two giant lobster claws, and Dave Cowart agreed,” Deren recalled. “My wife Terri and I talked about getting more distinction to the car, and I feel it was some of my comments that led them to pursue it.” Red Lobster got an artist involved, who came up with the paint scheme that the team used to paint the car. “I painted that lobster about 16 times,” Deren said. “The first time it was done by the Red Lobster artist. They wanted me to take templates of it in case we needed to paint it again. I tried that, but it didn’t work out. After about the second paint job, I did it by hand – masked it off and sprayed it.”
The Red Lobster car lives on in vintage competition. It’s owned by an enthusiast in Denver – allowing sports car fans of all ages to enjoy seeing one of the most distinctive race cars of all time.
We honestly have no words for how inspiring young adults are 🙏🏼 today they turned up in numbers for #fridaysforfuture strike in Washington D.C. 🌿 today we stood as allies with every young person who walked out of school or college to protest for our collective future. It was pretty incredible to talk to them and ask what motivates them and how one person inspired an incredible global strike. We were grateful to see @gretathunberg a true mythic icon and we hope our presence helped in a small way to support those we walked alongside.

К концу второго дня у нас наконец-то опять сломалась балка пополам. Прожила она 2000 км. Стырили от какого то забора бревно, проволоку. Позже передумали проволокой крутить и стырили хомутов. Где не скажем))) кто догадался откуда хомуты тот молодец))) После ремонта решили поесть и лечь спать. Но тут приехал велосипедист. Оказался француз. Едет кругосветку. Зовут Яков)). Короче накормили мы его макаронами с тушёнкой и накапали пару капель коньяка,т.к было это 5 сентября. В общем отмечала я др в поле))) #march_karakum#march#nissan#travel#offroad#drive2#mongolia #сто #своимируками #треш #прикол
