All you need to know about Formula E in 2022

Next week, Formula E is going to hit the track – the first big series to do so for their 2022 series. After a scorching 2021 season, which saw Nyck de Vries clinch the title in the final race, the teams are getting ready to bid farewell to the Gen 2 cars in their final outing. If you don’t know about Formula E, first of all: shame on you. Second of all, if you’re reading this, it means you are probably interested in the series. In that case: welcome! If...

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: Sebastian Vettel's '5'

It’s been a while since I designed something, but sometimes you have a hint, a spark, a slight flash of inspiration resulting in something you think is at least half decent. Well, this design is just that. I think I only saw Sebastian Vettel’s helmet, and knew I wanted to make this logo. The design is inspired by Sebastian Vettel’s ‘5’ logo, which he wears on his helmet. He’s done a lot of different renditions and variations of the logo, like the one in this picture. My design has the...

ACC Livery Resource: CarModelType & SkinTemplate overviews

This is an old post. If you are looking for a tutorial on how to make full custom liveries, click here for my written tutorial. If you are simply looking for the templates, click here. Now that the custom, user-made liveries have been made client-side by Kunos, there’s been a large increase in interest in creating liveries. I would know, because the interest in my original tutorial post multiplied threefold. Because the method described in that post changed, certain parts of it have been made redundant. Meanwhile, the new 2019...

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, it was suggested I go with the iconic Pink Pig design which was used for Porsche’s 917/20 in the 70s....

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 below! Ferrari 488 GT3 Racing on Redbubble The shirt has arrived, and it is looking mighty good, Excuse the crappy...

Design: Assetto Corsa Competizione Alt. Logo

When Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC) was first announced, I was just experiencing my first Assetto Corsa ‘high’. I was a bit late to the party. However, I thought that AC1 lacked a bit of focus. ACC promises to be about GT3 cars, and GT3 only – featuring the Blancpain GT-series. This prompted some inspiration, so I created this ACC logo; Assetto Corsa Competizione can be purchased HERE on Steam. I highly recommend you doing so. I might do a review later.

The F1 ‘Oracle’ – Trying to predict the results for GP #08: Azerbaijan

In this series of posts I attempt to predict the top 10 of both the qualifying session and the race ahead of qualifying. I will enter these predictions on GuessTheGrid, a website which takes your top 10 predictions and ranks them against other’s. Before I begin, my apologies for the lateness of this post. My internet has been down due to a cable rupture since friday the 16th and will not be fixed until next monday. I had to wait for the library to open to post this. Before I...

Design: Ayrton Senna’s Helmet (1990-ish)

What words could one dedicate to Brazilian legend Ayrton Senna which haven’t been said before? His career was excellently (albeit a tad biased) documented in the 2010 documentary ‘Senna’ (IMDb link) which for many was their first glimpse into the sport. Understandably, Senna’s fanbase (for a non-current driver) equals Schumacher’s. Who could forget his battles with other 80’s legends such as Prost and Mansell. The 1988 dominance of the MP4/4 and the resulting rivalry between Senna and Prost puts even Rosberg vs. Hamilton to shame. Sadly, we lost Senna in...
