This Chevrolet is a recreation of the 2016 Team Chip Ganassi car for Jamie McMurray. This paint project was partly picked, because the regular McD’s already existed in-game, and partly because Peter wanted a good challenge for the #1 car. It took quite some time to get all the layers and colors just right, making this replica as accurate as possible. Most shapes can always be found or created in the limited in-game vinyl editor to get the design pretty accurate. The real challenge is in the colors. Getting the right, and accurate is vital for making the paint scheme replica look credible.
As with any replica, the design can only be as good as the source images available. Luckily, Chip Ganassi’s NASCAR Cup racing team is high-profile, so are the paint schemes they run are very popular. This allowed for some great high resolution source images to work from, making the result a lot better!
The car shown was raced in Daytona in 2016 driven by Jamie McMurray. It features the McDonnalds logo, who is the teams main sponsor, as well as the Credit One livery on the sides, who featured as sponsors on 3 races in 2016. It was not the best of races for the team, as they started in 6th but finished in 17th position.
Peter B (@SweedishThunder on Twitter), who has made this paint job, has a passion with Nascar liveries and designs. He spends hours recreating and creating fantastic artwork, using the simple tools available in the Forza livery editor. He has an eye for details and realism that reflect hos passion. He wishes and hopes to get a chance to work with real Nascar designs at some point
