THIS FORTNIGHT'S THEME

This week, we’re going to dive into japanese motorsport culture. Last winner @Timebandit67 set this theme, here are the details :

«If you ask me which racing cars I like best, I answer: Gr.3, Gr.2, Formula 1 and DTM.

Who doesn't like to remember DTM racing cars like the Mercedes 190, Audi V8 or the Alfa 155 with the legendary V6 sound.

At the moment I am following Formula 1 and the DTM, even if I think it's a shame that Mercedes left the DTM in 2018. But then Aston Martin came along and at the season finale 3 brands from the Super GT (Honda NSX-GT, Nissan GT-R and Lexus LC500), who drove together with the DTM races in the finale in Fuji in November 2019.

That's when I became aware of the Super GT again. I like the Japanese GT cars and I'm also a fan of Jenson Button. I generally like what comes from Japan, be it clocks, cars, electronics or these gambling halls in Tokyo where everything flashes and lights up.»


SUPER-GT
Super GT (stylized as SUPER GT) is a grand touring car racing series that began in 1993. Originally titled as the Zen Nihon GT Senshuken generally referred to as either the JGTC or the All Japan Grand Touring Car Championship, the series was renamed to Super GT in 2005. It is the top level of sports car racing in Japan. The series is sanctioned by the Japan Automobile Federation (JAF) and run by the GT Association (GTA). Autobacs has served as the title sponsor of the series since 2005.

The JGTC (1993-2004)
The Japanese Grand Touring Championship was established in 1993 by the Japan Automobile Federation (JAF) via its subsidiary company the GTA (GT Association), replacing the defunct All Japan Sports Prototype Championship for Group C cars and the Japanese Touring Car Championship for Group A touring cars, which instead would adopt the supertouring formula. Seeking to prevent the spiraling budgets and one-team/make domination of both series, JGTC imposed strict limits on power, and heavy weight penalties on race winners in an openly stated objective to keep on-track action close with an emphasis on keeping fans happy.

Super GT (2005–present)
The JGTC had planned to hold a race during the 2005 season at the Shanghai International Circuit in China, in addition to the existing overseas round at Sepang in Malaysia. However, holding the series in more than two countries would have meant the JGTC would lose its status as a "national championship" under the International Sporting Code of the FIA, and therefore could not keep "Japanese Championship" in its name. The series would instead be classified as an "international championship" by the FIA, and would therefore require direct authorization from it, rather than the JAF.

Therefore, on December 10, 2004, it was announced that JGTC would be renamed "Super GT", with the goals of "challenge to the world", and "challenge to entertainment". However, despite the name change, Super GT has continued to only hold one overseas race per year; in theory, it could regain its status as a national championship and return to JAF jurisdiction.

In 2014, Super GT and the German touring car series DTM announced the creation of "Class One",which would unify GT500's and DTM's technical regulations, allowing manufacturers to race in both series with a single specification of car. After some delays, full unification of technical regulations is set for 2019.

The cars
The cars are divided into two groups; GT300 and GT500. The names of the categories derive from their traditional maximum horsepower limit - in the early years of the series, GT500 cars would have no more than 500 horsepower, GT300 cars would max out at around 300 hp. However, the current generation of GT500 powerplants produce in excess of 650 horsepower. Meanwhile, in present-day GT300, the horsepower range varies from around 400 to just over 550 horsepower; however, GT300 cars have far less downforce than their GT500 counterparts.

No replicas you say...

Brb just going to delete some modified NSX photos 🤬:lol:
@Timebandit67 was about to allow them, but at this point of the game, we thought it would be unfair to compare some who were specialized on Super GT replicas and others who barely know the details of this discipline (just like in the N24/VLN competition).

Drivers’ names, are these our default psn name or actual drivers names like the below?
BMW_Z4_GT3_%28Studie%29_drivers_names_2014_Super_GT_Suzuka.jpg
Both are allowed.

I really like when originality is mandatory. I think that being bombarded by replicas on the game and on the GT site has really made me tired of them.

I like this round.
Are updated/modernised versions of old cars allowed if they no longer run in said series? I.e. Castro’s Supra, Pennzoil GTR etc....

Please excuse the double post as I've just been introduced to something that requires me to state that my design is NOT a replica and I didn't know EVA Racing existed.



Mind Blown!

FINAL ENTRY

I did it, it was a bit rushed, but that made it a nice challenge. I chose to do a Tamiya-Livery because that's one of my favourite japanese brands and I wanted to keep it as japanese as possible. I wanted the design to look a bit oldschool to match the rather classic font of the logo. I never watched the Super GT series, so I don't know if I did it completely right, but it should be ok ;)

So went along with the 2020 NSX with the bonnet air vents, side skirts and exhaust exit on the right hand side, while I was adding the numebrboards and putting in the sponsors of the 2020 NSX I thought I'd use a Japanese drink company instead of Redbull, Pocari Sweat(in english and Japanese) jumped straight to mind! as well as Nick Cassidy as the other driver(should really be in F1...) with a "holographic" colourshift base, white geometric pattern all canards are Carbon Kevlar with blue edging, the white shape on the sides and back actually have a double blue and black stroke/outline, this is the result!

I had thought about inverting the Red Bull Mugen I have with white over Chrome Blue and I’m kind of glad I didn’t now because this is fire.

An edited version of a livery I posted a while ago. Main changes include the fact that I'm no longer driving, and the change to more appropriate Yokohama tires. Sadly it's not sport mode compatible because of the poor placing of the number board on the hood of this car.

FINAL ENTRY
GT7 Qualcomm Supra GT300



Livery Link
With this livery I wanted to create another one of Kazunori Yamauchi's adventures in the racing scene. Having competed in the N24 multiple times before, his next challenge is the Super GT series, specifically the GT300 class.

The machinery chosen for this year is none other than the Toyota Supra GT3, ran by the official Toyota Gazoo Racing team. Kaz will drive together with Robert Kubica, former Toyota F1 driver.

Due to the existing partnership between Gran Turismo and Toyota, this is the only combination that makes sense. Moreover, this livery has as its main sponsor the newest game of the franchise, GT7, together with the renowned chipset company Qualcomm.

I originally envisioned this livery as a GT500 since at Max Power/Min Weight it can keep up with Gr.2s and looks good along with the Epson and Xanavi, but slapped on a few GT300 numberplates for this contest. It's a factory Mazda team, with Motul as the title sponsor. The shapes above the real headlights are my attempt at creating unique headlights, since I didn't like the originals much. I tried to get the decal placement and sponsors as close to the real thing as possible, and I'm overall quite happy with the design. I've also recorded a timelapse+tune+cinematic montage of this car, will be uploaded this Saturday on my YouTube channel, so check that out if you're interested!

I just hope I can finish my entry in time. Not feeling particularly creative this time around and those weird surfaces on the SuperGT cars are really annoying.



Realistic sponsor placement (and quantity) is an art and you have mastered it.
Thanks a lot! I’ve looked at a lot of Super GT cars to get the exact look I wanted, and gathered a list of common Super GT sponsors/placements, apart from some custom ones (Gran Turismo and Thrustmaster). I’m glad it’s come to an effect!
