We’re back! The last livery competition, like the ones before, was a huge success. Community member JKCreativeworks set a creative theme that was followed up by a track day with the liveries made for the competition.
LEC 08 Poll Now Open
As mentioned above we saw over thirty excellent track day prepped cars, and without further ado, let’s hear what JKCreativeworks said:
“So I’ve got this idea, of an amateur trackday where N class cars are used, the objective is to make a car look realistically track-prepped with small tuner company decals, and other details/specs you find on a trackcar going for a trackday. The theme might sound rather plain, but I want to see people go for a minimalistic look and focus on details.”
It’s time to vote, and if you didn’t get to make a livery on time, make one anyway and join the GTP Sunday Cup races that are held every Sunday! But first be sure to head over to the competition thread and give your vote:
This Fortnight’s Theme
I must have seen a lot of restoration shows on Discovery Channel because this time I want to capture the essence of finding something rare where you wouldn’t think anything else but junk would reside. We’re talking rare barn finds. But this time – let it rust! Let’s hear what syntex123 has to say:
“I love classic cars, there’s something about seeing 40-year-old steel, the look, the sound, the smell.. But what if you saw a neglected one sitting in a garage full of junk? The car might be dusty, it might have some scratches, maybe some rust? There’s no limit here. Make the car look old and forgotten.”
CARS: N class cars before 1989 only
LIVERIES: Yes and no; if you want to do a classic race car, go for it. If you want a street car, go for it. As long as it looks forgotten.
USER MADE DECALS: Allowed
LOCATIONS: Shiretoko for the main pics, garage photo for the 1st bonus shot.
UNIQUE RESTRICTIONS: Make use of decals that look like dust, rust, dirt or other decals. You can use as little or much as you want, but it should look like it’s been standing on the same spot for years.
You can also take two bonus images. One garage shot (where the car sits now), and one old image (with an appropriate “old” filter) showing it’s last known location, with less dirt and wear on it than the livery you must enter.
