PostSubject: Banner time...   Tue Nov 17, 2009 6:39 am

Hello members,

another new year will dawn on us soon, and so will a new banner for our forum. By all means possible, I think it could be a good idea to have a banner that represents all the cars that have won championships. Like always, we need pictures of cars pointing in the direction of the cars in the banner at the top of the forum.

-Rossi's bike has not changed in livery, has it?

-NASCAR. The Toyota may have to stay, because finding a alternative NASCAR picture is very, very difficult.

-Touring car. I haven't been able to find a Seat Leon TDI yet, but, the Mercedes DTM car did win the constructors championship, and is the ideal picture because the wheels are not rotating. But, any alternatives are welcomed.

-The Citroen should stay, as it is the current C4.

-The Aston is now old. I am open to what its replacement should be. I was thinking something along the lines of an M3 GT2 E92 or a GT2 997? I've already found a perfect picture of the BMW.

-We already have a picture of the Peugeot 908 HDI to replace the Audi.

-The IndyCar could be changed to Dario Franchitti's Ganassi car, I could easily find a picture of that. Or, should the IndyCar be changed to another type of car?

And of course, the Brawn-Mercedes car. Which 24 has already found a picture of (thanks to him).

Any suggestions are welcome, but I do think our banner should represent the most popular racing series that are discussed on this forum. We have a lot of time though, thank you.

the NASCAR should stay as Bush will win Razz

IRL cars are also hard to find as all the pics are on banked tracks Sad also it's Danica & we don't want to appear sexiest, & artistic license Suspect

Ditch the cars and have pictures of ACTION.

Excited engineers on the pit wall, wheel to wheel racing, sparks flying etc.

^^^ Not quite sure that would work.

A retro banner is an interesting idea, I'll see if I can find suitable pictures.

Assuming we don't have a Brawn GP car (as that'd be "out of date", surely?) we're presumably looking at Jenson Button's McLaren??? As World Champ.

Truth is that the car that's already there has the right number on it and is pretty much the right shape... bit of photoshop to stick on ugly shark fin and... ;-)

I think i needs a total overhaul to such an extent i keep only the Rossi Yamaha.

The Aston Martin DRB9 barely raced at all last year and not in those colours, the Audi R10 the same. The Citreon is 3 seasons out of date now and the danica indycar was last years. Maybe we could have Franchitti's car or even Simona's.

I'm not sure what i'd do about the F1 car or the nascar but i would like something different and what about changing the DTM car for something wtcc or btcc?

I don't expect any of what i said to be used but i though i'd throw it in as there is a discusion about it.

Finding suitable pictures is not as hard as it seems.

I have found a picture of a WTCC Seat Leon, pointing in the correct direction. Iíve found a picture of a Ganassi IndyCar in the current livery, its Dixonís red livery Ė but itís current. Darioís livery almost changes from race to race, so keeping up with all of them would be a hard job!

A picture of a BMW M3 GT2 ALMS car can replace the Aston DBR9 Ė Iíve found a picture. I think the Kyle Busch Toyota NASCAR can perhaps stay, as the livery and the car is still current. Iíve found a suitable picture of a Montoya Chevrolet in current livery though? Does anybody want the Toyota NASCAR to change to Montoyaís one? Itís your guyís choice. But, I would perhaps like a NASCAR to remain on our banner, NASCAR is quite popular on this forum Ė and our banner should reflect this.

Big-Al already has a Peugeot 908 HDI, so that is no problem. And I think Seanís suggestion about using Jensonís Mclaren-Mercedes MP4-25 as the F1 car is a good idea. Iíll try and find a picture of that. So really, we already have suitable pictures for almost everything. Iíll just have to talk things over with Big-Al.

As for the WRC car, this is very, very tricky. Iíve searched high and low for suitable pictures of Fords and Citroenís in current liveries, but Iíve found none. If somebody finds one, please post it here. The issue is, I only have two cars to search from, with WRCís limited number of different car makers. So the likelihood of finding the right picture is even harder.

What does everybody think about this for our rally car? Its not a WRC car, but IRC is as credible as WRC now Ė and itís a current liveried car too.



I think its an awesome looking car, it competes in international rallying Ė a very good alternative to a WRC car.

I second that, Infact how about a Ford Banner? That rally car, Tom Chilton, A V8 Supercar and a Nascar, oh and a GT40.

I do like the Fiesta though, It's newer then the rest and it does need updating.

I hate anything to do with Ford but that does look cool (And Andreas Mikkelsen is driving a Fiesta S2000 atm so that's cool)

Steven, that's an interesting idea. I've always been interested by the idea of a banner that changes every so often with different themes. If I could find the pictures of that sort of stuff, it would certainly be feasible.

Finding rally cars pointing in that direction is hard, I was surprised that I even found that picture. And its even better if everybody approves.

finding the pictures it's not the trciky bit, it's cutting them out. Even that Fiesta will take a lot of work oweing to the shadow underneath it.

Might i suggest the andy blackmore style?

the question is finding someone to do it.
