Anyone who uses my Racing Wall Planner (available here) will see this weekend (27-28 June) is one of the busiest of the year. There will be Eighteen of my liveries racing or rallying across North America!
Update: While not competing, there will also be at least one design on show in Europe, Ken Block’s ‘ Hoonicorn’ Mustang RTR which I styled the body. The Ueno Clinic and GTC Gulf McLaren F1 GTR’s may also be driiven up the hill over the weekend!

It’s always great to get a livery commission, but there’s real responsibility in this game, particularly when there’s a brief that involves incorporating an iconic heritage livery.
Earlier this year such an opportunity arose when long standing client, Nissan and their NISMO brand asked me to assist in the design of an homage to the 1990 Nissan R90CK which Mark Blundell drove during his now legendary Pole lap at Le Mans 25 years ago (video below)

C360R have a distinctive livery using a thick stripe of Florescent Red along the side of their car. The clients wanted to promote the Audi relationship so we developed a number of ideas influenced by Audi sport coloration and previous liveries including the current R18-etron look, all the way back to the original Audi 80 GTO IMSA Cars. In the end we settled on a clean livery which incorporates both elements.
Turner Motorsporthave announced they will defend their GTD Class title in 2015, returning for a full season of the TUDOR United Sports Car Championship.
