This Week in Racing Design: #1

We're back with a new format. From on, we'll bring the past week's most exciting livery and design news from the world of motor racing every Friday. Here's the very first edition.

BMW Motorsport unveiled their Formula E car…

Biggest news first: BMW Motorsport unveiled their challenger for the 2019/20 FIA Formula E season and we love it! They mixed in quite a bit of purple into the livery, changed the shade of blue and kept their asymmetric scheme from last season.

If you haven't already, you should definitely also watch the launch video. It contains a short section about how the livery came together.

…as did NIO 333 Racing

With the Formula E having completed official pre-season testing this week, NIO also revealed their Season 6 car. It's quite a contrast to last season's car with clear edges instead of a gradient. We quite like the evolution and also the re-introduction of dark blue. It's no BMW though.

James Calado's Formula E helmet

Our co-editor Brandon Seaber has created the helmet design for James Calado's debut Formula E season with Jaguar. We like it a lot!

Macau Liveries for Maro Engel and Raffaele Marciello

Eastern liveries can be quite something for non-Asian motorsport fans. The Gruppe M liveries for this year's Macau Grand Prix certainly don't disappoint.

Cheeky self-promotion: if you want to know more about why Asian liveries are often so eye-catching – we wrote a little piece on that: betweenracinglines.com/blog/livery-design-in-asia

Kuwaiti & Thai Liveries for the FIA Motorsport Games

Designer Matt Reeves has created the Kuwaiti livery for the inaugural FIA Motorsport Games coming up next month. Also, the Thai livery was unveiled by Porsche.

A cool McLaren Mercedes concept

Andy Werner already published a McLaren Mercedes some days ago and now did another version with inverted colours. Which one do you prefer – black/orange or orange/black?

A cool V8 Supercar concept

We can only say it again and again: you can stick pretty much anything onto a V8 Supercar and it will look amazing. So does this concept by Nick Moss.
