The Techemet design incorporates the CJ Wilson Racing graphics introduced last year with Graphite and chrome Blue hues. The original CJWilson Racing design allowed for its use regardless of color and sponsor and this shows how the graphic can work across multiple liveries as shown below on their 2016 designs

SEMA 2016: Spirit of 147 – The Need for Speed RWB Porsche reborn

The Speedhunters car culture program reached out to me towards the end of September for a livery re-fresh of their Need for Speed Porsche 911 RWB which had been on show previously at SEMA.

SEMA is the largest trade after market car show in the world and takes place every year in Las Vegas in November.  The show is huge so its vital to create something that is a talking point so its remembered.

por147_3

With the desire of a refresh and timescale our options were extremely limited. Speedhunters wanted to call out reference for the 1965 Monte Carlo Rally classing winning Porsche 911 of Herbert Linge and David Falke which carried the number ‘147’.  While this was Red, the brief called for something Black, more sinister and ‘home-grown’ in appearance but with Rally influence.

New CJ Wilson Racing Render for Chicago Blackhawks

The forthcoming Road America round of the IMSA Continental Tires Sports Car Challenge will see a revised livery for the #35 CJ Wilson Racing Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport, supporting the Chicago Blackhawks Charities program.

While I wasn’t involved in the small tweak to the existing livery I was able to contribute on a Forza based render which was used for the press announcement earlier this week. Top Forza skin creator, ‘SCSSkreamies’  captured the image below from Forza, complete with the Road America bridge and I then photoshopped this Cayman into a full ‘GT4 Clubsport’ model with new splitter, air intakes, rear wing, additional branding, wheels and adjusted interior.

Corey Fergus to compete in PWC GT Cup class

2015 Pirelli World Challenge ‘TC’ Champion, Corey Fergus will move up to the GT Cup class of the Pirelli series with an updated livery on his new racecar, a Porsche 991 GT3 Cup Car. I designed the original AERO livery on his championship winning Porsche Cayman for the 2015 season from a joint commission by Corey and AERO paint films.

news_16_coreycayman

The livery has proved successful and recognizable in the crowded PWC grid in 2015, so the best approach was to update it to fit on the new 997.

Slightly different proportions and additional sponsor requirements resulted in an extensive rework on the side to ensure it was resolved on the longer wheelbase car. No cutting corners here.

2016 IMSA Rolex 24 Update

The start of the 2016 North American Season gets underway at Daytona International Speedway, this weekend with the Rolex 24 Hours and I have been involved in a variety of projects associated with the event.

16_roar_Turner_3

Most prominent are new liveries for Turner Motorsport with their all new BMW M6 GT3 and CJ Wilson Racing and their new Porsche Cayman GT4 ClubSport.

16_roar_Turner_2

The Turner design has been developed form the fan favorite Z4 livery, although the larger proportions of the M6 coupe proved challenging to balance. We ended up with a couple of final designs which the team could not decide on, so we went with both!

Each car runs a different diagonal stripe, along with the addition of driving light cover colors, help fans and the mechanics tell the two cars apart.

Jalopnik.com’s Stef Schrader has just published a cool feature on the livery design process of the new #33 CJ Wilson Racing Porsche Cayman GT4 ClubSport which will compete in the 2016 Continental Tires SportsCar Challenge.

16_CJWR_final_concepts

I talk about why went for darker hues, the use of the CJ Wilson signature (aka ‘Star’) and how this has become a common feature on his racecars so no matter what the partner, it is always clear its a CJ Wilson Racing car and will make the entries look more like a collective regardless of sponsor or base color.

Proton Competition Porsche 991 RSR

Earlier this year, I was commissioned to produce a livery for Proton Competition, one of the Porsche supported teams which competes in the WEC and Le Mans. Along with Falken Tire (who I also assisted with their 2014 991 livery), they are the only non-factory team to run a new generation Porsche 991.

In 2013, Proton changed their livery to Silver and Black design, based on Tully’s sponsorship in the US for Patrick Dempsey. For 2014 the team wanted a design which flowed along the car, not too complicated as very little time was left to design and wrap but retain the Silver and Black. As you can see, at this point, the car was to have significant branding from Eyecoon and Remus. The Remus face has been subtly adjusted so the eyes fit on the air outlet blades.

Porsche guests receive their own Petit Le Mans Spotter Guide

This is a great example on how a team or sponsor can use the Spotter Guide artwork to help their VIP’s and guesta at the circuit, in addition to building brand awareness.

Porsche North American agency, Momentum Worldwide, contacted me last month to create a special ‘z-card’ Porsche Spotter Guide layout for their VIP’s at Petit Le Mans. Porsche has a huge presence at the blue riband events such as Petit Le Mans and have their own building constructed on top of the hill, above the pits.

A Porsche 911 with a GM DV8 engine!  The build is supported by Andy Blackmore Design, Falken and HRE amongst others and will be based on a 996 chassis with various body and aero changes to make the car look like a road going 997 GT3 RSR!

Saudi Falcons debut new look

One of the leading teams in the Middle-East, the Saudi Falcons has a new look for their 2012/2013 season. The design features an evolution of the Falcon graphic on the side of their race cars which has now been emphasised by contrasting chrome and solid colouration

new_SF_911_line_ATF

Following successful usage of material finishes on the Mustang RTR-X and the 2012 Tyler McQuarrie Racing Chevrolet Camaro, I took this one stage further by introducing a Chrome Green into their design. Working with the team over a number of months, we settled on solid color on the hood, roof and trunk as well as the ‘Falcon on the side. The contrast works well in the Middle East with their strong sunsets and open desert circuits. Continue Reading
