Team Yamaha - GT Colour / Stripes?

I read with interest the discussion regarding xr_cam's dilemma in choosing a colour for his new GT. Team Yamaha is currently building its new GT to race in the Australian GT Performance Championship and surprise, surprise, we have the same dilemma. I am interested in Ford fans view on the colour we should run given it is a race car, not a daily driver. And those stripes have got me tossed - include them in the livery or not??

So, same question different twist.

[I have to add to this post that although a clear preference may emerge from this poll, the final colour scheme will be chosen taking into consideration our sponsors colour schemes, what works best on TV, and of course what fits in with FPV and Fords motorsport livery policy. So if the highest polled colour scheme is not what we end up running, please do not be disappointed. Thanks Trevor]

GO FPV!!

Hey Donut King

Gee you guys are sharp. Thanks for putting up the poll. I will watch with interest over the next week or so to see what the punters really would like to see on track.

Go FPV!!

I agree with Chubbz, either white with blue or black stripes would look brilliant on the race track!

1 vote for White with the Blue stripe, although Blueprint or Blue Pearl with the white stripe could look good too. Maybe.

Yep, I'd stick with a Blue & White combo to stick with Ford tradition. Go even one further?...Put 2 giant Blue stripes down the boot/roof/bonnet. That'll get some attention!

It will indeed... But where's the link to the production GT when you do that?

Unless Ford change the stripes on the GT... *Hint hint*

I wouldn't own one in Citric Acid and my views on the stripes are well documented but for an attention grabber in the pack it would have to be the go.

Cheers

Well i agree with Russ - for attention in the pack, Citric acid is the go - but forget the strips. By the time you stick a number and a few sponsors details on the side of the car, it would just look like a big double underline! Maybe that's good for the sponsors, maybe not!

Then again, for tradition's sake, blue pearl with white strips would look great.

Oh bugger it, I reckon it has to be cirtic acid or blood orange to stand out from the crowd. I've ended up voting for blood orange, no stripes. Sorry about documenting my thought process. lol.

As a totally stupid suggestion, what about all of the colours? Rainbow car!
