PostSubject: New banner...   Mon Jan 26, 2009 4:09 am

Hi all members,

I was thinking that our forum banner needs updating.

The NASCAR Toyota is current, we need a new DTM car, the Focus WRC is current, the Audi R10 could perhaps be replaced by a Pug 908 (Big-Al already has done this), Danica’s IndyCar can stay (assuming she still runs that livery) and we need to replace the Ferrari F2008.

Regarding the F1 car. I do not mind which car we have, however the picture is important. The car must preferably be pointing in the left direction and be a side profile picture – as you can see on the banner. If the car is pointing in the right direction, we could try and reversing the sponsor logos – although it can look crap.

I would welcome everybody’s suggestions, perhaps the DTM car should be replaced by a WTCC car?

I reckon the current banner has a good selection of the world’s top racing cars, but if you want any cars changed or added feel free to ask. We can fit more cars…

This is the kind of photo that is needed:

Yeah I was thinking a WTCC or BTCC car could replace the DTM Merc, but its all about finding the right photo. That will always be the problem. I'll do some searching. But that Toyota could be the F1 car...

That sounds like a good policy actually, feature all the driver championship-winning cars from the previous year. Hmm, we already have the R10. A Hamilton Mclaren shouldn't be too hard to find, a Johnson NASCAR could be tricky. Let me see. I like the idea...

I like the sounds of the Toyota, with it being my favourite looking F1 car, but i think the idea of the championship winning car is a belter thumbsup ten

the original idea was to have the current championship cars, but finding good hi-res images that are fully side on is very hard, the cars can be flipped & the logos switched also, but even though the pic has to be re-sized it cannot be made bigger, because the detail is rubbish so they need to be made smaller to get the right effect & scale.

the maximum amount of cars is what we have now (six) or they will be to squashed up i have tried this when i put in the Pug 908 & i did do one with a motorbike but it didn't look right.

if good enough pics can be found i can change it, i think a Hammy pic will not be to hard to source Smile

Yeah very much so, the pics need to be hi-res and have to be like the Toyota picture above. As Al says, finding the pics is hard. The Focus WRC on the banner has actually been flipped, but their were not many sponsor decals on that anyway.

What about this as the Hamilton car?



Not the greatest, with the helmet, but when it is condensed you may not be able to see that it has no other colour in it

That actually looks pretty good m8. I like that, my only reservation would be that its an MP4-22 - not an MP4-23. But saying that, their is not much difference...

I'm gonna search the net and see what I can find... I'll have a look in my vast motorsport file too, loads in their lol.

I think that could be the case m8, they look very small on that banner.

Grrr, getting this NASCAR is gonna be a pain though.

Thanks for the WTCC cars. It would be a bit cheeky to use that guys designs, but nobodys gonna know anyway.

Just to let you know, I'm doing those decals next week lol. Just gonna buy some stuff for it.

Yeah m8 I'll try and get pics.

That WTCC Muller car is pretty ideal. Doesn't this guy do F1 and sportscar ones too? I'm sure I've seen them somewhere...

it is but there is the Motorsport.com logo over the back wheel & i don't have a way to remove it.

those are the sorts of pics i need though, i may be able to use the ones 24 has provided but the new 09 Hammy car would be better so i think its best to just keep a eye out to see what else there is out there Smile anyway i don't have time until the weekend to do it anyway so there is no real rush to find a suitable pic Smile

I know it is the other way around but is this any good? I feel this one needs to be the last in the row like the Kimi Ferrari
