The AusterlitzRing, the third Dutch circuit

As a kid, I loved drawing fictional race tracks. Sadly, none of those designs have withstood the test of time. They might still be somewhere buried deep within a cardboard box at my parents’ place. However, digging through the many boxes looking for something that might not be there is something I don’t want to put my parents through. A couple of years ago, I stumbled upon the subreddit “/r/racetrackdesigns”, which is a whole subreddit dedicated to people’s fictional designs for race tracks. At some point, I uploaded a design...

I’m in love with Forza Horizon 5, and here’s why

If you’ve read this blog or at least seen a bit of the content on it, you might know that I’m knee-deep into sim racing. Particularly, Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC). What you might not know is that I haven’t driven in ACC for nearly half a year now. I still love the game and the idea it represents, but due to life getting in the way I haven’t found the time and energy to actually play it. Getting into ACC after a long day of work would not only require...

Design: MAX

For the average Dutchman, I’m not that much of a Max Verstappen fan. I am somewhat of an F1 hipster. The people who laughed at me as a teen for watching Formula 1? They have all suddenly devoted their Sunday-afternoons to watching Max do what they previously made fun of: drive in circles. Nevertheless, I respect Max’ driving skills. I certainly hope he will be able to break Mercedes’ hegemony, which has lasted for far too long already. Last week, I posted a design that combined Shepard Fairley’s “Hope” poster...

Design: SEB

I am a Sebastian Vettel fan. Always have been, always will be. Whether he’s winning races or even championships, or not. As Sebastian “Seb” Vettel grows older, he’s also growing more mature. He was always famous for his work ethic off the track. Especially this year, now that the pressure of being a Ferrari driver is no longer on his shoulders. Seb has become very vocal about the environment. And not just with words, but also in his actions. Whether he’s picking up trash after the British GP, opening a...

Design: Envision Virgin Racing ACC Custom Livery

Formula E. People seem to either love it or hate it. Myself, I think the series has great potential but still has some problems to overcome. However, it is undeniable that Formula E has spawned some great-looking liveries.  Having done the TAG Heuer Porsche 99X Electric and the Audi ABT e-tron FE07 livery, it is now time to present my latest Formula E conversion: the Envision Virgin Racing Formula E 2021 livery! Like the Audi e-tron FE07 before, I based this livery on the 2019 Audi R8 LMS Evo. A...

5 new and upcoming sportscars which deserve future GT3 versions

Group GT3 is a set of regulations created by the FIA for converted road cars to be used in various national and international racing series. Such as the SRO GT World Challenge, the ADAC GT Masters, or (as of 2021) DTM. Since its introduction in 2005, group GT3 has seen 52 homologations, while some GT3 spec cars without homologation are allowed to participate in some GT3 series. GT3’s homologation strategy ensures a low development cost for manufacturers, meaning it is an attractive option to many brands to market themselves to...

Design: TAG Heuer Porsche 99XE ACC Custom Livery

Formula E. People seem to either love it, or hate it. Myself, I think the series has great potential but still has some problems to overcome. However, it is undeniable that Formula E has spawned some great looking liveries. Last time around, I recreated the Audi ABT e-tron FE07 livery. This time around, I converted the TAG Heuer Porsche 99X Electric. First, we’ll have a quick tour of the livery which is based on the Formula E car pictured below, after which there’s a download link for a free download of...

Make your own 2022 Formula 1 livery with this free template

On 22 January 2017, I published a post. This post, titled “Make your own 2017 Formula 1 livery with this template“, allowed users to do as much as as the title described: let people use my pre-made template to create custom liveries. I linked this to reddit’s /r/Formula1 subreddit, where it quickly took off. Not only did it receive a lot of short-term popularity, it remains (even now) one of my most visited posts. In the sidebar, where my top 10 viewed posts over a 48-hour period are showcased, it...

Design: Marlboro McLaren Honda Custom ACC Livery

For our upcoming Ayrton Senna Tribute Event (May 1st, 2021) I created an in-game livery resembling the iconic Marlboro McLaren Honda livery (run in F1 by McLaren from 1973 through 1996), which I used to create the events’ poster. I thought that would be the end of it, but I got a glimpse of inspiration. I used said glimpse to further expand upon this idea, and make a proper Marlboro McLaren Honda. Specifically, I based it on the McLaren MP4-6 with which Ayrton Senna won the 1991 Formula 1 World...

TPP Presents: the Ferrari Challenge(s)!

With the SuperTrofeo wrapped up and the inbetween DTM GT3 Challenge too, it is time to look towards The Privateer’s Pitbox‘ next big championship. Or should I say… championships! Starting the first week of May, we will have not one, but two championships to fight for! The Ferrari Challenge will have both an Endurance Series (on Fridays) and a Sprint Series (on Sundays)! Based on the results of the survey ran within our community after the SuperTrofeo championship, the single car format proved the most popular option and the Ferrari...
