This Week in Racing Design: #19

Despite being right in the middle of pre-season, this week was a rather quite one in terms of design news.

RIP Ian Hutchinson

Unfortunately, Ian Hutchinson passed away this week. He was the designer who created lots of legendary liveries including the green 7Up Jordan from 1991, the first Mild Seven Benetton from 1994, the iconic Silk Cut Jaguar and the 2010 Virgin Racing. You can find an overview of more designs in the link below, put together by F1 Colours.

A Jordan-branded Bike

On a lighter note, we saw this bike on Twitter earlier this week, sporting a replica of the iconic Benson & Hedges livery the Jordan team used to carry in the late 1990s and early 2000s. This is super cool.

MotoGP's New TV Graphics

Having unveiled a new bespoke typeface end of February, MotoGP also unveiled a new set of TV graphics earlier this week. And they're stunning, even more so in the flesh.

DTM's Season Opener Artwork

With the DTM season starting in late April, the artwork for opening round in Zolder, Belgium, was released this week – designed by Chris Rathbone. While last season's posters were already very well done, hiring Chris is of course always a winner.

Black Falcons GT World Challenge Europe Livery

We still can't really come to terms with the series' name but its liveries do sure look good.
