Whoops, didn't notice the lobby settings was missing a pic. Thanks for pointing it out.

So here's my Battlefield V livery based on the Blancpain Mercedes AMG-GT GT3 car. I just used the same decals that the default Beetle livery had but changed ever so slightly.

Entry List updated! This is looking like a really good field right now!

In other news, Clockwork Motorsport will be running this KeePer livery for the season.

So as a defending champion are you running a handicap...Just kidding. But seriously you should have to tie one hand behind you back it MIGHT give us somewhat normal drivers a chance.
