    Hello guys,

    after reading John Westerlund proposal of make 2 cars per team with diferent banner and mirror banners to make the car easy to distingish in the broadcasts we have decided to make it mandatory, as obviously is a good idea.

    So when you release your team folder, there should be 2 car skins with diferent colours on banner and mirrors.

    Cheers,
    David

    Good point (again).

    Maybe is better to have two fixed colors for cars 1 & 2, but that can "ruin" some designs.

    What do you preffer?

    Sorry to be bothering
    it got me thinking
    if we have a base color and we have a flow line on the car, can we change the flow line color instead of window banner and mirrors?
    because the flow line kind of goes on the mirrors and to only change mirror colors might look funky :)

    (ok going back to my cave :wink:)

    I would prefer if we could pick our own colors, due to some colored mirrors or banners maybe not looking so good on some skins.

    Thats a cool idea, for example Maik (our skinner) has made two versions of our car, and both look awesome. So two slight colour differences would be cool IMO.

    OK guys, I think every team should be able to choose his colours to make them fit the skin.

    And I think Christopher point is a good one. The answer is yes, minor changes apart of the banner and mirrors are allowed aswell. But the main design should remain the same to grant the team cars are clearly the "same team" cars in the eyes of the spectators.

    very sensible, keep going mates, will look even better than last year. Made me think of how some years back BAR tried to launch a F1 team with two different skins and ended up with the famous 1/2 - 1/2 design (777-Lucky Strike).
