Subaru Rally Team USA to run tribute Colin McRae livery

I have been very fortunate to have turned my hobby into my career. Although not a big ‘design’ project, this is a special one for me. I was commissioned by regular client, Vermont SportsCar, who run the Subaru Rally Team USA program to create a Colin McRae tribute livery to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Colin’s World Rally Championship. David Higgins will pilot his Group N (JRM) Subaru WRX STi with co-driver Craig Drew.

I have tried to keep as close was we can to the original livery, swapping out tyre and fuel sponsors of the day to 2015 partners including coloration where possible. Subaru die-hards will notice we are also using the darker non-metallic blue of the early cars.

It was a very cool project to work on and as a kid from Great Britain who grew up with rallying (my god-father was a co-driver, then later I co-drove in a couple of Single Venue British Championships with my brother-in-law) it was special to be able to pay tribute to Britain’s first WRC Champion.

The Winning cars of Justin Wilson Print – SOLD OUT

EDIT: The print is now sold out. Thank you to everyone who purchased the print and rasied over $6000 for the Wilson Children’s Fund

Words: Marshall Pruett, Racer Magazine.

Justin Wilson fans have a new charity print to purchase that will support the wife and children of the late racecar driver. Created by renowned livery designer Andy Blackmore and IndyCar digital artist Ryan Long, the two have come together to create a print depicting each car Wilson drove to victory in a career spanning three decades.

From the Formula Vauxhall Junior car Wilson used to earn his maiden win in 1994 to the Dallara DW12-Honda that took the Briton to Victory Lane for the final time in 2012, 14 cars have been created by Blackmore & Long. And in some cases where images and logos were hard to find, the Wilson family, including Justin’s father Keith, provided invaluable help to accurately recreate the cars.

Altogether, 32 people came together to make the $125 print possible, and of note, Noblesville, Ind.-based Rowland Printing donated the labor and material costs to produce the print. The batch of 50 prints, done at 18″x12″, will be sold on eBay starting at approximately 9 p.m. ET at the following link: All proceeds will go directly to the Wilson Children’s Fund.


“I had originally met Justin a few times when we were both still in the UK during his time in Formula Vauxhall and always followed his career more closely than others,” Blackmore told RACER. “I wanted to help Justin’s family following his untimely passing and used the helmet graphic from an old Champ Car illustration as the basis of the helmet tribute sticker that helped spread the word, was used as a tribute, and more importantly, raised funds for the Children’s Foundation.

A BAD (Lambo) Variation

BAD Lambo Racing and Park Place Motorsport recently commissioned me to produce a variation on Jim Norman’s BAD Lambo Racing livery for up and coming racer, Madison Snow.

September 16-18, 2015 Lamborghini Super Trofeo, Circuit of the Americas: #14 Madison Snow, Bad Lambo Racing, Lamborghini of Beverly Hills, Lamborghini Huracan 620-2
Sponsored by UIS, the basic design remains but the colors and transition has been modified. Matte Black has made way for a Gloss finish while the oranges and bright reds at the front have been merged to match the sponsor house colors, creating a deep Dark ‘Blood’ Red.

White has been introduced on the side which breaks into Silver and back to the Red to give a unique look which also but retains the basic team identity.


The original BAD Lambo livery remains (shown above).

The new livery will make its debut at the Circuit of The Americas round of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Championship North America.

Justin Wilson #Badass Stickers available for North American residents

As you maybe aware, INDYCAR (US) and Stickers4 are selling Justin Wilson stickers to raise funds for Justin’s family and the ‘Wilson Children’s Fund’.

Shipping cost from the INDYCAR Store is expensive for the sticker and is shipped via UPS (which usually creates import charges). As a Canadian resident and designer of the original decal, I’ve had a number of emails asking where these can be obtained from Canada.

I have arranged a limited supply of these stickers to be printed for Canadian (EDIT: and now the US) and are available for CAN$8.00 + $1.50 ($2.50 for US) to cover postage, Ebay and Paypal fees). The $8.00 will go to the Wilson Children’s Fund. Once these are gone, it is unlikely I can get more produced as I’m funing cost of production. To make things easier for all, I am selling them through Ebay.

You can view the Buy It Now item here

The sticker has been designed and produced with the full support of Stefan Wilson, Justin’s brother.

Full list of ways you can help the Wilsons is listed here by Marshall Pruett.

Rest in peace #BADASS

His & Hers Ferrari 458 Challenge

Early last year, I was commissioned by well-known car enthusiast, Benjamin Sloss to create a unique livery (below) for his Ferrari 458 Challenge Evo using state of the art AERO Paint film using  Cobalt Blue AERO Liquid Metal™ on Speed Yellow livery. AERO had suggested me after working on previous designs for CJ Wilson Racing and Tyler McQuarrie Racing.

After running his Ferrari 458 Challenge car over the last year, Sloss and his wife, Christine, decided to purchase another 458 Challenge EVO for her to drive as well. With so much success on the first livery, Mr. and Mrs. Sloss decided to reverse the Cobalt Blue and Speed Yellow livery for their second Challenge car (below).

New look for Team BMR in the BTCC

Warren Scott’s Team BMR have become a force to be reckoned with in recent years in the British Touring Car Championship. In 2015, they are running BTCC champions Jason Plato and Colin Turkington.

Warren reached out to me a couple of weeks ago for a livery to showcase their increased support from RCIB Insurance. With two weeks until the Snetterton round of BTCC and a packed schedule already in place, it was a super quick turn around on this design. A variety of concepts was initially submitted to the team before they selected this flowing design which was developed into the final concept, above.

With the artwork complete, Team BMR’s Vinyl supplied did a great job in wrapping four cars in 4-5 days. The final cars are close to the original concept with just some branding adjustments. The previous design was plain Black with a white rectangle on the bonnet (hood) for RCIB. Continue Reading

Compass360 Racing Livery Feature

I was fortunate to work with Canadian team, Compass360 Racing on their new Audi fleet of racecars. At the end of last year, I designed a new livery for the Audi S3, which blended the traditional Compass360 look, a retro inspired Audi Sport identity with the vibrant and cool paint films of AERO.


The livery design process has now been released in the dedicated Portfolio section.

2015 Le Mans supporting artwork

After Daytona, the run-up to Le Mans is very busy for me, not that I am complaining. Oh no!


In addition to the NISMO Le Mans Spotter Guide and the livery design for the #21 Nissan GT-R LM NISMO prototype (which also features here in the above graphic), I also assist teams with various graphic assets.

Sticking with Nissan, I supply the NISMO motorsport organisation with various vehicle, and helmet illustrations which their PR guru, Paul Ryan then integrates into inforgraphics, press releases and press packs.

The lead image features Nissan Athlete LM P1 roster, with cars. Great fun drawing these helmets, many from low res or awkward angled images as these Le Mans spec helmets had only been used on test day, or were still being painted
