Every year Dunlop Tyres hold an art car competition. The prize is to see your livery applied to a GT car competing in the world-famous Le Mans 24 Hour race. This year the car is the Ferrari F458 Italia of British team JMW Motorsport.

Looking through the brief that Dunlop supply, it’s clear that many of the other entries decided to ignore the rules on logo usage, and the ability to be able to replicate the design on the real car. With these important factors in mind, I chose to go for a simple yet recognisable design of the distinctive yellow giving way to a dark grey via a cracking effect. You know the kind of cracks that appear in a dry riverbed, or a hot, dusty road. The concept being that the Dunlop tyres provide so much grip, they’ll rip up the road!

Anyway, you can view my entry here, and hopefully you’ll vote for it too. That might require you to ‘like’ it on Facebook, but hey, that’s how things are done now, apparently.
