This...is the best thing ever.
Looks really good @AudiMan2011 but I think it would be nicer if you toned down the colours a bit. They are a bit too vibrant.
Regardless, I would love to have that Ford in one of my racing games.
The pics were edited with the in-game filters.
Orange on the front is too high up. Needs to be a noticeable gap under the lights, not intersect them.
Because nobody associates Ford GT with Castrol?
It's tired and played out.
See what I mean?
Nope. Still looks amazing on race cars.
I couldn't agree more
That's because Gulf Racing actually tries to pull something new and tasteful instead of going full "ZOMFG GT40 HERITAGE 917K LEGACY" and applying the very same layout over and over again like fans do. That's why I took modern Gulf Racing's cars' liveries as the source of inspiration - to make it less tired and played out than pretty much every other fanmade livery (which are low quality and didn't go beyond blandly copying '69 #6 Ford GT40's livery anyway) while staying faithful to the '69 Le Mans winner.
"Ongoing status of Corvette Racing at Le Mans" Could someone care to explain that?
Pratt & Miller and GM aren't very pleased with the FIA/ACO's BoP antics (if I'm remembering this correctly) and being 5 seconds slower than the Ford's and Fezza's.
Just for reference, the Gulf GT40's won in '68 and '69.
I stand corrected. Thank you.
That actually looks horrible.
It is simply a dull and overused livery.
It looked alright on last year's Vantage. Last time it actually looked good was on the DBR9. I wouldn't mind if it disappeared from the grid, it looks horrific on that 911.
I'd rather say that 991 GT3 RSR's kit is horrific. Especially that front bumper. Ugh.
It's all a matter of taste; to each his own. The reason why it's used so often, is it's simply iconic. You see the light blue and orange together and you that it could only be a Gulf sponsored car. Compair it to the old Marlboro liveries. (Did I spell that right?) Or the Lotus liveries. You knew exactly what that car was the second you saw the colors it had on it. It all lies with marketing. It's an easily recognizable rand due to the fact of the single orange stripe. If people know what it is, the more likely the will be to buy it. Why change it if it's doing exactly what you want it to? As for all the spray can replicas on road cars, I have yet to see one in person, and to that extent, I can see how it can become an eye sore.
Sorry can you point out the GULF logos for me here please?
He means light blue, with the very bright orange in the middle.
Plus, there's hardly any orange on that car that I can see.
Went on a personal research. It's an Aston Martin Racing's car. AMR often uses Gulf Racing's cars - just google "Aston Martin Racing", pretty much half of photos will be of Gulf Racing's Vantages. This one just seems to be used by AMR without of GR's sponsorship.
It's not Aston Martin racing and has never been owned by Aston Martin racing
The name on the site might tell you who owns it.
All Aston Martin racing cars are privately owned including the pro cars in WEC.
Also random fact I own the side skirts from this car from when it raced at spa but that's just showing off.
I finally managed to get a corvette cup!
If anyone's been to Le Mans each year they have different cups of previous years Le Mans class winners which people see as a challenge to collect them all and the only one I couldn't get was the C7R one but someone on another forum kindly sent me one free!
I came back with about 20 this year, I'll have a rummage around later today and see which ones I have!
I'd really love to have that cup
If @R0ssingt0n doesnt have a spare I was offered a couple on the other forum so could ask if someone else hasn't took them.
It's based off the Gulf livery that JWA Porsche used on the 908/3s in the 1970 Nurburgring 1000km and the Targo Florio. It's very much a 'Gulf' livery.
Gulf "inspired" you could argue but not a Gulf livery
I Don't have one at all unfortunately!
These are the ones I have (didn't bother lining up the duplicates...
Worth a try @LMSCorvetteGT2 i can still get a hold of one for you if you're interested?
Sure that'd be awesome.
Anyone have any spare cups that they could send me? Preferably an Audi one but it doesn't really matter.
