    Following the successful conclusion of our first RaceDepartment themed skinning competition we are pleased to confirmed the winners have been decided!

    We've had an incredible response to our competition during the last month, with no less than 73 beautiful deigns submitted by our awesome community and utilising a wide variety of first and third party content currently available in Assetto Corsa today.

    We asked our readers to vote for your top five designs which will then be reviewed by Kunos Simulazioni's Stefano Casillo and an overall winner chosen.

    Of the 73 final submissions we received an incredible 1,356 votes, with each and every livery submitted receiving a vote in the poll. However the standout community chosen skin, and incidently the scheme chosen by Casillo as our overall winner, was the brilliant RaceDepartment Corvette C7.R by @speedyx56

    Receiving a total of 32% of the community votes and seal of approval from Casillo, the Corvette is a beautiful design and a worthy victor against such stiff competition.

    "Congratulations to all submissions" said Casillo, "I have chosen the Corvette as it is the one featuring the most interesting lines, gradients, details and design that seem to transcend the actual car curves and adds interesting angles to the base shape.
    A big shout out must also go to @pan-pan who ended up in the runners up position with is his awesome GTR below:

    Next up in joint third position with an equal number of votes are designs from @schUPpor and @TTM75 with the FXXK and Fiat 500 respectively.

    @schUPpor makes yet another entry into our top five with his fifth position voted submission for the venerable BMW Z4, proving that classic GT3 machines can still keep with the latest and greatest in the world of GT racing.

    I'm thick and can't count... :) Please welcome the lovely Porsche from @NCIS that a more intelligent person would have seen actually amassed votes high enough to be in the initial top 5!! Congratulations @NCIS, great job fella! Lucky that @schUPpor had 2 skins in the top 5, so no harm no foul!

    Each of our top five finalists will receive a small Kunos Simulazioni goody bag containing some Assetto Corsa merchandise as a reward for their efforts, and our winner @speedyx56 will receive an additional free 12 months Premium membership at RaceDepartment.

    EDIT: Because we are so impressed with the top 5 skins, everyone will get a new 12 month Premium too !

    On a personal note I want to thank everyone who has taken part in the competition, either submitting a skin, voting in our poll or offering words of encouragement to our entrants. It's been the first time we have run something like this and it's not been all plain sailing I must admit, but I'm simply delighted with the response and engagement we have received. I wasn't sure how well received this event would be when I first decided to run the event... well it's gone down very well indeed! Thank you everyone! I will take on board the lessons learnt from this event and the next one will be even bigger and even better !

    Congratulations everyone, simply exceptional stuff.

    @speedyx56 @pan-pan @schUPpor @TTM75 please can you send me a PM so we can arrange your prizes :)

    Thanks :thumbsup:

    I'm disappointed that I didn't wn. If someone does not need his Kunos goodies, or thinks that I need them more(which would be right) can pm me. I will take them. No but honestly, I think that everyone could have won.

    Man I feel like I should have entered, dont think I would have won because these skins are world class but still feel like I missed out none the less.

    I'm not really a fan of Corvettes, but I must say this one looks beautiful in that livery! Congrats to the winner. :thumbsup:

    Great work on these, although for me the Corvette is indeed darn right brilliant but I really like that FXX as well.

    Congrats to the winners.

    @Paul Jeffrey Shouldn't the 6th place get the leftover AC package, due to the double entries of schUPpor?

    I couldn't remember what I voted for aside from the Nissan GTR and the Praga (sucks it didn't make it). Anyway, congrats to all of the winners :D

    I personally like the Fiat 500 entry; something radically different from the professional race livery aesthetic. Didn't vote for it due to the five car limit though...

    Great to see that Speedyx56 won this competition. :thumbsup: I personally never thought that my rusty Fiat skin would be on the top five, because there was better ones available. ...but thanks to all who voted and liked my Fiat skin.

    Well done to the winner and 4 runners up... and to everyone who submitted :)
    I didn't expect to win as my entry was taken from the Castrol skin I wanted in AC... So no where near as much effort as everyone else put in to this competition... But I take it as compensation that I voted for the winning livery :D

    @formulaHEINE I'm surprised the Praga didn't finish in the top 5 though... Not only do I consider that the best skin.... But it's the best skin I've seen for the Praga... Next time maybe ;)
