THIS MONTH'S THEME

To celebrate the 24 Hours of Le Mans and 24 Hours of Spa both on the same month,

Please read the rules below to make sure you don't miss anything when you post your entry, as ignoring them can get you disqualified.

  • Cars that have raced in Le Mans or Spa 24 Hour races. Decals from the respective series must be used as per sponsor templates.

BODY PARTS / WIDEBODY:
  • No Restrictions

LIVERIES:
  • Replicas Only

GENERAL COMPETITION RULES

ENTRY SUBMISSION

  • The only way you can take part is to be a member of the GTPlanet forums. If you haven't created your account yet, click here.
  • Mark your FINAL ENTRY clearly, with red text.
  • Unsure how to? Copy and paste the following: [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 utilise edited/hacked file saves.
  • Winner gets to choose the following month’s theme.
  • The organisers 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.


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 location and settings as shown in the quote below.
  • You are allowed to post two bonus pictures in a spoiler ([SPOILER]...[/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 set allowed number of pictures and the FINAL ENTRY (see above) mark. If you want to add precisions/background story/links, you are allowed to double-post under your entry, but please put all additional images in a spoiler. 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.
  • Do not attach your phots directly to your entry post.
  • 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 post-game editing of any entry image is allowed.
  • Mark your entry with which platform you're on and which mode you're using, whether it’s taken on PS4 Base, PS4 Pro, PS5 Raytracing or PS5 Framerate.


MANDATORY PICTURES
  • While you can choose one or both scapes for your entry, you have to post a front and a rear quarter view of your car:
  • Do not use any Filters or Effects at all and only the camera setting above within the allowed limits; the pictures are supposed to be as equal as possible for all entries and not give anyone who is a bit more savvy with the Scapes Camera an advantage! Try to stay as close as possible to how the video shows the shot to be taken!

NOTE: if you have previously entered, just go to Scapes > My Library > click your previous entry > Open Scapes > change car to the new entry, refocus and snap a new photo. No need to reposition the camera/car unless its proportions are wildly different.


Please, ensure you read and understand all requirements for this competition. Failure to follow the rules may result in disqualification. If you have questions, start a convo with me, Matski or any other participant you feel comfortable reaching out to.

PLEASE NOTE: Repeat offenders will be disqualified. If your entry doesn’t match the rules you will be made aware of it at least once, so please keep an eye out for any notifications reaching your profile.



DEADLINE

17th August 2024

Due to the limited selection of Hypercar type options available I won't be limiting peoples options on what they choose to put their livery on if they choose to do an LMP1 or Hypercar livery. Obviously there are Porsche, Audi and Toyota options available in game. Audi probably works even for some LMP2 liveries so once the car suits the livery you've gone for then go for it.

GT3 class can be the original livery on the original car or the livery adapted to suit the "modern" GT3 equivalent in GT7.

This is a combination of Le Mans and Spa 24 hour races so the main factor is making sure the car raced at the circuit you've selected and then has the right sponsors and number boards for the race that you've selected. The bonus pictures will also have to match the race and car you've gone for.

🤔 weighing up which one of my many liveries to enter…

Can we enter liveries from the past on a new car as long as we still place the modern day decals in place?
I.E when Porsche run the Pink Pig livery on the 911 RSR

Thank you @Racerx_34 for putting up the LECs! So much work, really grateful that you are doing all this!

Question regarding the rules.

Let´s say we take a BMW E36, which ran in Spa quite successfully. Am I allowed to put a livery on a E30 or E46 or something similiar looking? Or are the rules strict: If it was racing and Spa / LeMans and is not in the game, you have to look for something else?

You can modify it to something that is in the game to suit.
 
Absolutely love Le Mans and had a few liveries to chose from but went for the 2019 Rebellion LMP2 Gibson Oreca

As mentioned above we don't have that car so hopefully adapting it to the Toyota hypercar fits the spirit of the LEC - if not I've got others I can submit just let me know

One of my favourite liveries and looks great on the Toyota. Nicely done

I love the livery, but aren’t you missing a rear three-quarter view? Would hate to see you disqualified. :)

Question for @Racerx_34 – this may have been answered in the last round, which I didn’t follow, but are both scape locations mandatory? Or can I use two photos from one location if I choose?

@Racerx_34 can you clarify - I've not entered since the locations changed, followed the instructions on mandatory scapes as best I could??
 
My entry is the #52 Team Schuppan 962C from the 1991 Le Mans 24h. This is a small tribute to Roland Ratzenberger, one of the drivers from that car. It was the third time Roland took part in Le Mans, the first running a C2 entry, but he didn't have much luck: car was done after just 58 laps. Looking at the cars he drove in this event starting 1989, the 1993 would probably be more appropriate to pay homage to him, since he won in the category that year. But I think the 1991 design is nicer and having the 962C in the game means my replica will not be as cringe as a Toyota drawn over a Sauber or something like that.

I REALLY don't like doing replicas lol, but this time I think the intention is good: Roland always seemed like a nice, down to Earth guy. I am not one of those who thinks he gets forgotten - quite the contrary, having the unfortunate destiny of dieing that Saturday, he is much more remembered than most F1 drivers who got killed on track.

About the livery, I had a lot of trouble finding consistent images of the actual car. As I was almost finishing it, I found the sister (#53), which is a longtail and would therefore fit better into the 962C available in the game. Since the #53 actually made it to the end, albeit it was a NC, there's more pics of it around. That's why I want to make some changes, having the #53 as a example to sort some things on my entry.

As I would make some small corrections, I chose to not yet share it (and also that's why I made my entry as not final). But I really don't know if I will have the time to do it, so maybe this placeholder will have to do in the end.

You can choose one from each location or both from the same location.
That's up to you and whatever best suits your livery.
 
FINAL ENTRY
PS4 pro


2024 Le Mans LMGT3 class winner. Manthey-EMA #91
This was not an easy livery, none of the arrows were in showcase, so I made those, but I could not get gradients to upload, so I did those with in game shapes and made decals paired with transparency. My first stab at the new front air dam as well, it is ok but needs some refinement. It was done mostly with game shapes as well, I just made a shape template to guide me. I am actually thinking of trying to make something like a mask so it can be done in canon fiber decal.

Edit to clarify
