GK5 Challenge: Shanghai F1 Track

Just finished running a race in the GK5 Challenge Series on the Shanghai F1 circuit. We ran the entire F1 track and the event was held along with the China GT Cup. Enjoy the photos.



New car going into the pits with exactly 1,000KMs








All GK5s













Driver's Meeting


Hankook was the tire sponsor. Ran full slicks


FT and RR after round 1




On Pole (Because I came in last round 1)




Only one accident




Good times


Sexy Cars...
















Gotta love the GT cars

Agree! I love seeing ideas for graphics. Do you do your graphics with different colors of wrap vinyl? How do you go about applying the vinyl in patterns that follow contour lines of the car? Is it precut, or trimmed in place?

Thanks, glad people are enjoying these and hopefully getting inspired on what the GK5 can do. For us, the GK5 is a very capable chassis. It's faster than the GE plateform hence why we race it.

People approach graphics differently. First of all these are race cars and not show cars so they get banged up. Exterior isn't our primary concern. People tend to take on the graphics differently. As you might have seen my car was white to start with and then as the sponsors come in, they apply their decals. They sponsor the series so we have to let them put on these decals. Without sponsors, racing would not be possible so it's all good.

As far as the car graphics, we use a designer to design our own since we have our own colors and etc. Some of the cars are independants but usually it's all teams since the teams provide the technical support and crew. Some of the drivers are renting cars, mostly are running our own or team cars.

In our particular instance, our graphics are custom done at a wrap shop after our designer did some general designs. This time it was very rushed and didn't turn out too well. Next time will look much different.

As far as off the shelf stuff, there's a lot available in Asia... A lot. You can buy them and they ship it to you in a roll. If you have the skills, you can apply yourself preferally with people to help...

Haven't posted for a while but here is the 12 hour endurance race we ran on New Years. Not the best of races but it was a good time.

That is AWESOME! I wish there was more enthusiasm for racing small cars in the US. The B-Spec series here is the closest thing (Fit, Mazda2/Demio, Fiat 500, etc) but participation is pretty low.
