THIS FORTNIGHT'S THEME

This week, we are going to the roots. Last winner @Raphaele set this theme, here are the details :

Let’s go back to the roots – the grassroots of motorsports and have fun galore! Forget all of your Lambos, Ferraris or Macs. Cheap and older used cars are the heroes of “The 24 hours of Lemons”. In the real race series the cars must not exceed a value of 500 $. In our competition we go for maximum Cr. 80,000 (in-game list price) and a model of 2010 and before. Unleash your lemons, be creative and have fun!


CARS:
• N100, N200, N300 only
• In-game cost must not exceed Cr. 80,000
• Car has to be model year 2010 or earlier
• For fun’s sake, Safety Cars are allowed (no price, no year)

LIVERIES:
• Original liveries, replicas, parodies, fancy teams – inspired by anything you love

UNIQUE RESTRICTION :
• Livery does not need to be SportMode-friendly.
• “24h of Lemons” decal is mandatory on either side of car (see spoiler above)


BONUS PICTURE SETTINGS:
• Two bonus pictures
• At least one in motion at Willow Springs at night/dusk or daylight

USER MADE DECALS:
• No restrictions.


GENERAL COMPETITION RULES

ENTRY SUBMISSION

Code:
[COLOR=red][B]FINAL ENTRY[/B][/COLOR]
- One entry per user. It must be your own work, and never previously used in a competition.
- You may change your entry once. Do it clearly; edit out your previous entry, and either post the new one in a new reply, or in place of the original.
- Do not post "Honourable Mentions" or outtakes - just your Final Entry, that's all.
- Absolutely no entries which utilize edited/hacked file saves.

- Winner gets to choose the following Fortnight's theme.
- Winners cannot enter in their own theme!
- The Host may ask for the original image/livery and it must be submitted if so.
- It's recommended to share the original livery online (in-game) to prove it’s your work.
- Winner, second and third places will have to share the links of the liveries for the Hall of Fame thread


ENTRY PRESENTATION

- All images shall have preview images which may not exceed 640 pixels in either direction (main and bonus pictures)
- You have to post two main pictures of your entry using the mandatory locations and settings as shown below
- You are allowed to post two bonus pictures in a spoiler with free location and settings (unless the unique restrictions of the week’s theme specify something else)
- You have to make one post with ONLY the 4 pictures and the FINAL ENTRY mark. If you want to add precisions/background story/links, you are allowed to double-post under your entry. The best way to do it will be to "reply" to your own post.

- It is recommended you host your image either here on GTPlanet (via the Media section), or on Flickr
- Not sure how to submit your image? Here's a guide for both methods mentioned above.
- A preview image must be representative of the full-size image. Do not add effects to it.
- Please use a clickable-preview to full-size, not a separate text link for it; it makes poll creation much easier!
- No heavy post-game editing, slight enhancing is allowed.

- You can choose between the Shiretoko 03 location or the White Sands 01/09 locations. No other location will be allowed for the main pics.

If I wanted to use my lemons pace car from the safety car LEC could I do that? I used it, then changed it to a different final entry.

If it was an entry then replaced by an updated one, I could accept it. But your M4 actually made it to the poll so you can’t re-use it without any modifications. But you can work on it as a base for a new livery for this theme.

I could have sworn I changed it. But it’s all good. I’ve got ideas.
 
FINAL ENTRY





If we’re going for grass roots racer lemon then there can be only one.

One of my favourite cars in the game.

Based off one of the American Lemons with that yellow/white divide with some fun elements and Paddy’s Day timing thrown in. Pity all the parades are cancelled.

:cheers:

American cars from the late 1970's are terrible.

With that thought, they're perfect cars to get humiliated with at Lemons by having a lawn ornament of a chicken welded to the roof or having to drag the thing around a paddock like a sled dog if you made contact with someone. Putting a crash test style livery on the Firebird is perfect for high visibility and cheap since the POS is likely going to the crusher after the event.

Link for the eyesore.
 
With the lemons events clearly being about having a but of fun and not taking themselves seriously at all I thought the best idea for this theme was to to take that same attitude for the livery. Obviously the best thing was to take an iconic Motorsport livery and apply that to a wedge from a rival manufacturer. Judges bribed with a large box of Yorkshire tea.
