Default SRS: Please help me come up with a Track only car paint/graphic style

Im going through ideas in my head on a paint/graphic style.

Few things im considering:

-may or may not have a top on. Must look ok either way.
-car will be judged on aethetic package and should IMO be either original or have some kind of racing heritage to make sense.
-I will be doing my own paint, will be the 8th car I will have done so I can paint, but i would like to avoid overly complex designs.
-I would like to limit the overall paint scheme to have no more than 3 colors both for expense and for ease of application.
-the paint colors should be basic colors more or less so I can buy the paint for cheaper (thinkremix)


The car is a RHD shell and is BRG at the moment but the doors will likely be another color when i go to pick them up.

Here is a link to my thread if you are not familiar with my project:

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Matt

Let's see if I can make it two track car designs!

I submitted this loser to PM for their rental cars (they picked another):





I'm too lazy to redo the colors/logo for you

Three very good options.

Going to sound very club roadster esque and im not sure what it even would mean in terms of a racecar but how about something "JDM". might work with a theme being that the car is right hand drive.
Take that how you want to... im not even sure what i expect when i say it LOL.

How about classic British themed since the car is British racing green already.

The coolest paint scheme I've ever seen is genesplicer's "Rising Sun" scheme, but if you copy it you are a huge powerbottom.
