Sorry for the lack of posts, but hoping this monthly review of livery changes could lead to more frequent posting of more than just catch ups in the future. Let’s start with Indycar this time!
Marco Andretti had Oberto as a main sponsor last month, and in doing so, gave the Andretti template a funky new feel. The main red and white’s were well complimented with a light green, giving an undoubtedly Italian theme to the car.
We also saw Sato in a livery with very minor changes in August. Expedite brought a very slightly lighter blue, along with yellow as for the trimmings, where we’d seen red and teal earlier in the season.
Gutierrez, and then Bourdais on his return, drove the #18 in straight blue and white last month, in what does look quite empty and dull now. This livery was far more striking in red at the beginning of the season, and without the sponsor on the sidepod, looks empty.
Graham Rahal sported two different liveries in August, the first a minimal red effort, sponsored by his father’s car dealership. A single white stripe down the side of the car complements an appealing shade of red, with some black on the wings completing the look.
It’s the same design as above, but looks entirely different in this colour scheme for Fifth Third Bank. Slightly clashing colours here, the two blues and the minty green not quite gelling. Definitely interesting, but not ugly!
Off to the Supercars! Tekno was sponsored by Cars 3 at
Eastern Creek Sydney Motorsport Park, and went the logical route of painting the car in the film’s main character, Lightning McQueen’s livery. It is gimmicky but makes total sense. Could only imagine it would succeed in making younger Motorsport fans want to watch the movie, and parents think about taking them.
ACDelco was the latest sponsor for Percat and BJR, putting a pleasant metallic blue on the grid, along with pink and white stripes, in what is a basic livery.
