Introduction

 

The racing pre-season is a time of anxious anticipation, excitement of seeing new cars and liveries, and (often quite hysterical) trying to decipher the testing results. In 2012, another part of the tradition was born when this little competition has started and since then it became an integral part of this magical time of the year on our forum. It's a place for the fans to try and show that they can do better than those real life modern liveries often dismissed as "boring", or let loose and produce something devilishly satirical - the possibilities are endless and we've seen some very creative entries over the years. The winner earns such priceless awards as immense satisfaction, sense of achievement, bragging rights, the responsibility honour of hosting the next year's competition (at least in theory   ;)), and being remembered forever as part of our...

 

 

Hall of fame

 

Here are all the previous winners - who will be the next one to join this exclusive club?

Template

 

For the first time ever, our contest will use two templates representing both F1 and IndyCar. The choice is yours. 

 

The F1 template was originally made by BWT and updated to current spec by TheGoldenStoffel. It's available in JPG and PNG format. There's also a huge version of the PNG file - dimensions 26000 x 7000 px. Not sure if anyone will need it but just in case, you can download it here

f1template-prev.jpg

 

The IndyCar template was created by Brandz07. Unfortunately it's only available as a PNG file because of the shading.

You are of course free to use any kind of software and technique in your creation process. And as always, the use of advanced lighting and shading is mostly discouraged - the ideas should be more important than pro-level execution, let's keep it relatively simple. But it's more of a suggestion than a strict rule.

 

For uploading your results I personally recommend https://postimages.org/ as it's simple and has a good record of long-term file storage but obviously anything will do.

 

 

Rules

  • Only images created using templates provided above will be entered in the voting process.
  • Please don't modify the template. An exception can be made for things like changing the colour of the rims or tyre markings.
  • Don't copy already existing designs. Of course the line between copying and adapting can be thin but do try to make it your own design as much as possible.
  • In the end, any disputable cases will be judged by the forum moderators.

 

Schedule

 

Entry submission - from February 4th to February 29th (end at midnight GMT)

Voting process - from March 1st to March 14th (end at midnight GMT)

Final results announcement - March 15th 

 
 
 
I think that's all. It's lights out and away we go...

Nope, never. I have judiciously voted though.

 

I don't think this is anything to get into a fight over. You look as this thread and the efforts as a bit of a laugh, and I look at it as a chance to see what other ideas could be presented than the stale ones the F1 teams apply now.

One of my favorite winners from yesteryear is in fact the one that combine fresh ideas with comedy. The specsaver one. And everyone, including me, loved the trout (or was it salmon?). I just think that some other comedy entries has felt forced.

Is it a big fat pussy eating hot dinners? With a pile of discarded dinner plates highlighting just how many hot dinners this pussy can handle 😄

Ok, time for the F1 livery entry from Team SUPER A.G.U.R.I. (Anime Gridgirls & Umbrellas Racing International).

I cannot take credit for the art work and the team name, but I did have concept input.

Love it PAYR.
Kinda reminds me of the first overall winner in this competition
Hello Kitty racing. ...
(Loved paulb’s homage to the kitty, in just the right place too )

Speaking of past entries.... I always loved Crushed Villeneuve

For those new to this thread it looked some like this.
(Except it was a Rothmans Williams )

So do we actually enter it into the voting or what? Seems you've found a loophole in the rules which interestingly wasn't discovered in all these years  :p
