GEAR Racing's Pop-Art Livery
Alright, this livery has actually been around for some weeks now. But we've also got to use this format for a bit of self-promotion. Earlier this week we released a little feature on this amazing livery in which design Andy Blackmore tells us the back story of this project. Trust us, it's as fascinating as the livery itself. So please feel free to give it a read if you haven't yet.
“I explained to them I have one hit and that was it.”@andyblackmore has told us the story behind the gorgeous pop-art inspired GEAR Racing livery that raced at the #Rolex24 this weekend. And It's about as inspiring as the livery itself.https://t.co/xuNFMTNU0F— Between Racing Lines | Design Blog (@btwnracinglines) January 27, 2020
Glimpses of Nicholas Latifi's Helmet Design
With his logo having been unveiled last week, during the last days we saw some sneak peeks of Nicholas Latifi's helmet design for 2020.

Toyota Supra DTM Concept
We love concept designs that are truly creative and don't just slap past liveries on a different chassis. This one by Koshiro looks great and we'd love to see that one in the DTM.
Sorry for the stereotype. Actually not sorry because we're just following what Pfaff Motorsports have done at the Rolex 24.
Just as importantly, get a load of these! 😍🇨🇦 pic.twitter.com/q9rMSSjYxy— Between Racing Lines | Design Blog (@btwnracinglines) January 25, 2020
Igor Fraga's Toyota Racing Series Livery
This week we stumbled across this beauty that is run by Brazilian driver Igor Fraga in New Zealand's Toyota Racing Series. We really love the colours and especially the finish.
Speaking of the Toyota Racing Series, this is what the Toyota manufacturer livery looks like on a single-seater. If only they'd have stayed in Formula 1...
What would a Toyota livery look like today if they’d stayed in F1?— Between Racing Lines | Design Blog (@btwnracinglines) January 25, 2020
Who really knows!... but this Toyota manufacturer livery on an F3/TRS car might give us a little idea. #TRSNZ pic.twitter.com/nLVbiRw3yi
Behind the Scenes
This week, we got lucky and got two chances to see timelapses of how racing cars get painted or wrapped. Always fascinating to see.

59Racing's Bathurst Liveries
After the Rolex 24 at Daytona, the coming weekend will see another highlight with the 12 hour race in Bathurst. 59Racing will run two McLaren and showed us their colours on Monday.
Spanish designer Ivan Cayuelas has designed two really simple, but beautiful artworks after the WRC season has kicked off with the Rallye Monte-Carlo last weekend. We're in love with those, great job!
