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: 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...

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...

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...

Design: Gilles Villeneuve’s 1980 helmet

There are hardly more tragic stories than that of Gilles Villeneuve. The Canadian driver drove his first race in 1977 for McLaren, but was picked up by Ferrari for the final two races of the 1977 season. He won his first race in the following 1978 season at his home grand prix. He came close to winning the 1979 championship, but was plagued with problems in the ’80 and ’81...
