RaceDepartment Barwell Motorsport RD.png

RaceDepartment are proud to announce we have partnered with Barwell Motorsport to become the official Barwell Motorsport esport racing team, and whats more, their official car will be featured in Assetto Corsa Competizione - using a livery designed by the community!

The big RaceDepartment skinning competition is back - this time with a distinct Lamborghini and Barwell Motorsport theme...

Those of you who have been around RaceDepartment for a little while should recall our original hugely successful 'Big RaceDepartment Skinning Competition' from back in 2017. Following on from that success, we've taken it up a notch in association with the highly regarded Barwell Motorsport racing team!

Want to get involved? Here's how.

The Car
Our base reference car for this livery design will be the 2019 Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo.

The Livery
The livery must include the following decals in order to be considered a legitimate submission:
  • SRO/AWS windscreen banner
  • GT Omega as headline sponsor
  • Associated logos included within this article
  • Space for number panels on both sides and bonnet
  • Tyre sponsor must be Pirelli

The Format
You can submit your designs in any format you wish. You can use the Lamborghini skin template from the original Assetto Corsa, via photoshop JPG, Pencil Drawing, whatever you wish so long as it is obvious what you are trying to convey with your design.

The Submission
Please submit your finished designs within the comments section of this article. Please provide a shot from both the left and right side, top, front and rear of the car, with the words FINAL SUBMISSION at the top of the post.

The Deadline

The competition will run from today, and close on Sunday 31st of May 2020 before 23:59 UTC. All submissions received that meet the submission criteria will be eligible for judging by the close of the competition deadline.

The Reward
The winning livery, as decided by RaceDepartment and Barwell Motorsport will be added into the base Assetto Corsa Competizione simulation to be run by the official RaceDepartment Barwell Motorsport esport team, and their driver, Luka Berk during the SRO E-Sport GT Series AM Championship and beyond. Additionally, the author of the winning design will receive a GT Omega Wheel Stand Classic and a selection of Barwell Motorsport related merch, plus a free one year RaceDepartment Premium membership.

We are really looking forward to seeing your creative submissions, and then seeing what the winning design looks like when racing around the virtual circuits of Assetto Corsa Competizione in the very near future!

Sorry, how can there be a competition, when there is no NDA allowance for using the SRO Livery system in public? Will there be an official text by Kunos/SRO for this? The Wireframes are deleted. Or do i missunderstand something here?

Edit:

Ok i didnt read the article enough. Sorry :D

nice, I picked up bits of this in Saturday's broadcast and just visited the Barwell site for any info, coming back - bingo!

browsed a bit for inspiration, plenty of downright ugly Barwell skins around, pity I could not find any of the historic ones from the 70s 80s or 90s. this is the nicest one I could find, dunno if it will be realized in real life, but it looks fine http://andwerndesign.com/projekte/50_Barwell/projekt.html

That's a good thing.

On the other hand, I'm not going to lie to the readers, if tomorrow I play against them on Assetto Corsa Competizione, I'll only see my crew in the pits, the customization of the skins, ok ... but it's very poor if the pits are so empty.

I'm going back to the nursing home to do wheelchair racing.

Could we get some clarification on how each sponsor logo should be used and if they can be modified ? (required brackground colour or not, are outlines allowed, etc)

Skin on AC or ACC ?
You can use whatever you want to get your point across. Personally I would skin one of the simtek rf2 lambos as I know that template inside and out.

As long as we can see that it's a lamborghini huracan gt3 you can use whatever method you like to submit your entry.

Guidance is in the download folder pack. I'm pretty sure that want us to use those only. I normally make own scratch-made vectors.

Like with most brands modifying logos is a no go. The only exception is if you are monochroming them white or black to fit in with a design.

Which for most brands that I know of does count as modifying (same for outlines); hence my question. :)

Outlines. Hmmm. Can you show me an example and I can give you 100% clarification
Something as simple as, for example (3px white)

isn't allowed by some brands, or has some guidelines about it. An example that I can think of would be Seagate with these liveries I made following their brand guide : https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/36-37-38-corvette-c7-r-seagate-technology.21486/ Their brand guide doesn't show at any point that outlining the logo is an authorized use.

Other brands may want a defined amount of free space around their logo :

This is the kind of stuff I'm asking for to be clarified. (if possible) :thumbsup:

I think for the sake of clarity my guidance is no modification to logos apart from monochrome.

While what you have done hear is actually a nice treatment and done tastefully I think fo the sake of clarity I will say no modifications over and above monochrome.

What about our own logo on the car. Some cars have the Graphics Shop / Business on them. Like GRID GRaphics, One11 ect. Mine is SOLIDKREATE.

So we have to use at least one logo of every folder of sponsors, right? This results in 9 mandatory sponsors. Am I right or am I wrong?
