Deano, don't get me started on this years colour Laughing I hate it so much!
And as for having to be the championship winning car, OK Renault didn't win the Championship but won 2 races












Oh I see your point Steven lol! Laughing

but it's OK can't we just have the top 4 cars then? McLaren, Ferrari, Renault & BMW????

^^^ thanks cerca. cheers

Hi everybody. After a bit of searching I’ve found this lot. Some are more ideal than others:





It’s the championship-winning car at the launch.



A bit dodgy, not completely side on



(sadly no hi-res)



Absolutely perfect. It is Hakkinen’s car, but it is hi-res and pointing in the right direction. The same livery as Di Resta anyway.



This could perhaps replace Danica’s car? This is Scott Dixon’s championship winning Indycar. I don’t know what Big-Al thinks about that though. I don’t mind, but it’s a championship-winning car…



I found this for Loeb’s Citroen. Not ideal, but the best I could find. It’s a C4 anyway.

Sadly, I could not find a WTCC Seat Muller. 24’s link on the previous page would have been ideal, but Al says they need to be hi-res. I found a Seat Leon pic from 2005, but it says ‘2005’ on the door so we cannot get away with that one.

Finding appropriate NASCAR pictures was tricky. Perhaps we could stick with Bush’s Toyota? Ideally I would have liked all the cars to be champions cars, but that isn’t possible unfortunately. However this has been partially achieved.

Wrong way around Cal, it could be flipped. And anyway, we are trying to find as many 08-championship winning cars as possible. If Renault win the drivers title this year, a Renault will on the banner next year! Imagine how…errr exciting that would be.

Big-Al, could you tell me which pics I posted are suitable - and which are not? Cheers.

i think i can use all of the ones you have posted Smile

still use the Audi R10 ? or a 908.

if you have the Citroen - Audi - Dixion cars they may clash as they are all red, that is my only concern.

i will have to have a go later next week as my pc is playing up & my laptop dosn't have the programs on it.

Cheers Al.

You have a very good point there, lets use the Citroen, Peugeot 908 and Dixon's IRL car. This way the colours would not clash. In fact, what are everybody's thoughts about that?

I think this could be our line up:

Kyle's Toyota - NASCAR
Hakkinen's Mercedes - DTM
Sebastien Loeb's Citroen - WRC
Peugeot 908 - Le Mans/LMS/ALMS
Scott Dixon's Dallara/Honda - IndyCar
Lewis Hamilton's Mclaren-Mercedes - Formula One (the first Hamilton pic)

Would everyone be okay with that line up? I think its the best balance between championship winning cars and modern cars. Now lets hope Peugeot win Le Mans eh? Laughing

Ideally, I would have liked Hammy's 09 car - but a suitable pic could not be found. Ditto with the Red Bull Citroen. Alan, provided you put the same style text with 'racing.forumotion.co.uk'. You can add the banner into the admin panel when you are free - you don't need to wait for me. Very Happy

Thanks for the ideas and thoughts members. I think we have a good balance of the world's top racing series.

yeah im ok with it Smile

i will have a go at it the weekend, i may do a rough one first though to see what people think of it as doing one like the one we use now takes time to get it detailed & looking right & i don't want to have to make loads of them Smile

right then, this weekend i will be doing some new banners, i will be putting the cars in different orders & using different cars, so we (us members) can have a look & decide which we think is best, they will be very rough versions as it takes time to get them to look nice & i don't want to have to waste time making good versions & not end up using them, so they will be uploaded & we can comment on them etc over the next week or so (i only have time to do them at weekends) so once a decision has been made i will do the proper version, also i won't be including text as its going to be changed anyway & has already been sorted out.

here are some that i have done Smile

this is the one we agreed on with all the winning cars (except the nascar) & the Pug 908 which was to be added.
its not to bad really not sure on the black/red/black/red though from ITC to IRL


this version has the Audi R10 instead of the Pug 908.
the WRC,LMP & IRL seem to blur into one as the color is to samey.


PUG & Danica IRL included.
they seem to blur into one.


i added the Audi R10 to this one to see how it looked & the LMP,IRL & F1 seem to blur a bit now.


added Aston for the Le'mans car


as i said i have done these to give a idea on how each will look, & i can tweak the colors a little though (i have not adjusted any color on the pics above i have used them raw), but what do people think of the look ?

i know the images are rough & the scale is out on one or two so please don't take that into account Smile

my opinion on them is that, they seem a bit bland due to the color schemes of the last four as they seem to blur into one & i cannot really choose between them to be honest & if i included the version we are using now then i would choose that version as there is a bigger difference in color with the white, blue & green of the Ford WRC & the bright red of the F1 car & it just looks nicer Smile

anyway what is everyone else's opinions ?

Would we not be better to wait a month or so and then use the 2009 cars?

That McLaren's rear wing is DEFINITELY not 2009-legal.

By the time we get to June everybody will be saying "that's SO 2008, we're well into the summer and the header is SO out of date" ;-)

We could take the opposite approach, of course, and stick James Hunt et. al in the header. That'd make it "classic" and "timeless" and it wouldn't matter.

But 2008? Nah... that's gone...
