This isn't a full skin, but a resource for creating skins — yet another template for number plates. This is a single, editable GIMP image that includes templates for several sports car racing series. It is organized as several layer groups for various sanctioning bodies (WEC, ELMS, IMSA, etc.), further subdivided by series, class, etc. To make a number plate, just show the appropriate layers, edit the car number, and (optionally) export to a flat PNG or other image. These exported images may then be copied into your skin.


Number plate templates for all of the series and classes below. Listed with each one is the closest background color code that I was able to find in my research. As of the 2019-05-19 update, the template's resolution is now 512x512, which should be enough even for 4k-resolution skin files.

Btw any chance to add more touring car numberplates like WTCC and WTCR...?
Thanks, and enjoy! ^_^
GIMP is one of those "easy once you get used to it" sorts of programs.
