Liveries for LAP57 UAE and Saudi Arrows ahead of 24h Dubai

Snowed under with livery and Spotter Guide work at the moment, so just a quick post to show off two liveries which will be used at the 24H of Dubai later this week.

First off, LAP57 UAE are one of the most well known middle-eastern teams and have entered most of the 24H Dubai races, I remember attending in 2011 and seeing them racing their Integras. The team have developed and they will be running a new JAS built Honda Civic Type-R to TCR Touring Car regulations.

The team wanted a clean livery which left space for sponsors over the coming races and a development of their current look.


The livery has come out really well. Probably one of the cleanest liveries I’ve designed in quite a while, but it works with the Blue and White contrasts.

The team even sent over an additional video showing them applying my logo – Thanks guys! Really appreciate this.

The other entry is running under the new Saudi Arrows team.

This team commissioned me to create a design quickly after seeing my previous work at the 24H including the Saudi Falcons and the 2011 winning Team Need for Speed BMW Z4’s.

This was one round of design with basic placement, so we developed a design based off an element of their logo, Taking the arrow head and elongating. This livery was also designed for a McLaren 650 GT3 and Radical race cars. For this event, the Audi R8 will be run by 2016 winners, WRT.

I was lucky to be invited to Dubai for the recent 24 Hours by the Saudi Falcons team, whom I’d worked with on a number of liveries. CrankandPiston.com, the biggest automotive blog in the Middle East followed the team closely and produced a team feature. I was lucky enough to be included as a member of the team for the weekend. You can read about it here.

Saudi Falcons shine in Dubai

The Saudi Falcons BMW Z4 GT3 took to the track this week in Dubai for the 24Hours. Run with Schubert Motorsports, the car featured a unique part Chrome livery which worked well in the strong light and sunset of the Middle East.

The cars were expertly wrapped by Christian Dreyer. Schubert had previously campaigned the Team Need for Speed BMW Z4’s with my livery, again, wrapped by Christian.

Saudi Falcons BMW Z4 GT3 for Dubai 24Hrs

With less than a month to go, The Saudi Falcons have revealed their 2013 Dubai 24hour challenger, which will be run by previous winners, Schubert Motorsport. The two car team will feature the chrome and solid green livery which I designed earlier this year.

The arc’s work particularly well on the side of the Z4 although the oversized number panel proved to be a bit of a headache, but we managed to create a design which doesn’t look too busy despite so many sponsors. Continue Reading
