Default Race Car - New Graphics.

Got my car back from the sign writers recently, ready for the new season in our Classic Japanese Series.

Thought I would put it up for viewing and possibly some Miata Turbo abuse .

After a lot of work on the respray and the new graphics I am pretty pleased with how it came out.

The grey gives it the appearance of the flat, slightly raising beltline of the S2K.

OP I think it looks great!

Is that an AU word? I hear those mcm fgts repeating it all the time, so I'm guessing yes.

Thanks guys, really appreciate the comments

It is really weird, I also get the S2000 impression from it.

What you cant see is the centreline stripe up the middle (one fat 2 thin). I asked the designer guy why he did that (as it is very Mx5/Miata) and he said that it just seemed to need something and that is what came to him.

Funny how a car shape can lead a graphic or design in one direction the world over...

Anyway, have a busy few weeks ahead, have to fit and tune a MS2e, Aim Evo4 with MXL dash and hopefully before September 9th, a set of 6UL 9" wheels and that is me broke for ever .

Hopefully that is the big ticket items covered for a few years....I have raced bikes my whole life just waiting to get to cars (and the money pit associated, don't tell the wife!) and really looking forward to it.

Our Classic Japanese series is 3 races per meeting. 1st race is start positions as qualified, 2nd and 3rd races are full handicap starts based on race 1 results so should be a lot of fun with the possibility of race wins/podium places to most competitors and lots of overtaking throughout the series.

Can't wait!
