Tool: Assetto Corsa’s Setup Tips

I’ve found that setting up cars in Assetto Corsa Competizione is a bit above my current skill level. For me (and probably a lot of other enthusiasts like me) there are just too many variables which can make a car go round faster, but also slower. Toe, caster, rebound, differential preload: what do these terms mean? I have a vague idea of what they are, but how do they pertain...

Design: Porsche 991 GT3 “Pink Pig”

After creating the Ferrari 488 GT3 I felt like doing more cars from the Blancpain field this way. One of the first to spring to mind was the Porsche, because of its iconic shape that hasn’t changed much over the past 50 odd years. Long did I doubt about the color to upload this in. First, I wanted to do an acid green color to resemble the Manthey Porsches. Ultimately,...

Design: Ferrari 488 GT3

Playing Assetto Corsa Competizione has given me inspiration to convert some of the cars into artwork, starting with Ferrari’s aggressive looking 488 GT3. I’ve uploaded the design to Redbubble, mainly because I myself am going to the Blancpain GT3 races at Zandvoort the 14th of July, and I wanted to wear a shirt based on this design. If you fancy this design yourself, feel free to click on the link...

Design: minimalist Formula 1 car

Between June and August, my internet cable broke. This meant I couldn’t browse the web or watch TV. There was an upside to all this: my productivity greatly improved. For 47 days, I was almost entirely disconnected from the world. I did a lot of designing during that time, and now I’m slowly uploading all of these designs both here and on RedBubble. The first of these is this minimalist...

Design: Sebastian Vettel’s 2015 Ferrari helmet

Sebastian Vettel is a controversial driver in Formula 1: you either hate him, or love him. Making his debut in 2007 for BMW Sauber as a temporary replacement for the concussed Robert Kubica, Vettel went on to make his full season debut for Toro Rosso in 2008. He scored STR’s first and to date only victory in the soaking wet temple of speed, Monza. He was promoted to Red Bull...

Design: Alonso’s McLaren Andretti Honda Indycar

I took a break from drawing Ferrari’s, but not from drawing thoroughbred racing cars. After the retro Ferrari 641 (F1) and Ferrari 333SP (Le Mans), we jump to the other side of the Atlantic, and to Ferrari’s long time rivals: McLaren. With Alonso’s shock announcement that he will be driving the Indy 500 this year for a new McLaren entry (in cooperation with Andretti Racing), powered by Honda. McLaren driving...
