  1. This is the story of the International Velo Federation (IVF). In this thread you will be able to follow from the very beginnings the history of how the IVF came to be and each and every event thereafter. In keeping with this being a thread on a design website the story is going to feature many logo, uniforms, and even stadium designs and changes. I welcome comments, opinions, and questions. Also, in keeping with this being a design website I will try my best to discuss what I was thinking as I created the designs you will see. As for the sport itself, Velo is a made-up bicycle racing game. The basic synopsis is this. Games are played in 3-5 races that are called sets. In a set each team has 3 riders competing, so altogether between the two competing teams 6 riders are on the track (Velodrome) per set. Only one team can score in a set. A point is scored by each rider who finishes before the first finisher on the losing team. So, in a given set the most a team can score is 3 points. If you sit and consider how this will work, that is why game lengths range from 3-5 sets. If by the third sets completion one team has 7 and the other had 0, the last two sets are not needed to be played because only 6 possible points remain on the board. Even if the trailing team got them all the final score would be 7-6 and they would still lose. This may become clearer as this thread plays out. I am going to post a detailed game sheet for every game ever played. Again, I welcome questions. They will help to clarify as this goes on. On a team’s roster there are 6 riders and a coach. A team may also have 1 or 2 assistant coaches. The players are listed on a roster by position; Leadoff (this is also the captain and most often fastest rider on the team), Middle, Cleanup, First Option, Second Option, and Third Option. The first three (Leadoff, Middle, and Cleanup) make up a team’s line or starters. They will be the players to race in the first set of games. The other three positions make up the bench or options. These are the players that may be rotated in for the later sets. At least one bench player will see action in the game because rules dictate that at least one change in lineup must be made one set to another and no rider may be in more then three consecutive sets of a game. There are exceptions to the rules laid out in this paragraph but as to not congest this initial post to much those can be explained in due time or through your encouraged questions. So, to begin allow me to give the quick back story set up and then end for tonight with the first logos and uniforms.
  2. NASCAR as Formula 1?

    SO, I was playing F1 2015 yesterday and then saw someone had just recently posted a template for the new formula car, and wanted to do some concepts for it. I know NASCAR like the back of my hand, Formula is a distant follow. I wanted to imagine some NASCAR teams sponsors as formula cars, with Haas being the obvious crossover (the 14 car will look similar to how i think they should really look) but I only have 2 completed so far. I know they're a touch plain to start, but I didn't want to go all in if nobody would bat an eye. So enjoy, leave some C&C or let me know if you want to see some more! If this gets a positive reaction I'm planning on doing a car for all 36 chartered teams. Here is the Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates #1 Cessna and the Penske Racing #2:
  3. 2018 Open Wheel Race Chat

    Welcome to the 2018, open wheel race chat! I'd figure I would get this started since the roar before the 24 happening this week, I'd figured I would open up this as well. - Some big changes in open wheel especially in IMSA now that Team Penske has returned to IMSA with not only Juan Pablo Montoya but also Helio Castroneves & Ricky Taylor & their goal is simple, stop the dominant force that is Cadillac - In Indycar, we have a new chasis & a new champion in Josef Newgarden & from the looks of the car as well as the reaction, I think we're going to have a great season - In Formula 1, the question is who will get their 5th championship first, the reigning champion Lewis Hamilton or will Sebastian Vettel finally end Ferrari's drought, or will Red Bull's Max Versatppen or Daniel Ricciardo or even Valteri Bottas play spoiler? - World Endurance will begin its super season but with rumors coming about LMP1 possibly switching their model design to look more like a road car, could we see the next revolution in Prototype racing (IMSA is also listening & hopefully this brings in more manufactures) - World Touring Car Championship is no more, they have decided to go TCR so that will mean more manufactures. - Pirellli World Challenge is going through some changes, Cadillac has left & Callaway has come in, bringing Corvettes with them. K-Pax switch to Bentley Looks like we got a lot in store this open wheel season.
  4. 2018 NASCAR Season Thread

    Happy new year & welcome one & all to the 2018 NASCAR season thread! Well its that time once again folks, counting the days down to the clash & then the Great American race. 2017 had been a very interesting season, with the dominance of Martin Truex Jr. the points system that was put into place, Monster Energy becoming the sponsor & last but not least, saying goodbye to Dale Earnhardt Jr., Matt Kenseth (who knows how long) & Danica Patrick as well as the Chevrolet SS. With 2018, we see some changes happening, along with almost a changing of the guard. Chevrolet brought in the Camaro ZL1 unexpectedly (& happily surprised) but also we see William Byron jump up to Monster & Alex Bowman taking over the 88 but we also see Darrell "Bubba" Wallace Jr. join Richard Petty Motorsports & RPM form an alliance with Richard Childress Racing & switching to Chevrolet. I think Byron vs. Wallace will make for a really good battle for ROTY Now let's get down to nitty gritty. 2018 we restart at Daytona & a new schedule for the playoffs including Las Vegas, Richmond & the Roval in Charlotte, will we see the same dominance from Truex & or Toyota, or will Chevy say enough is enough? Will Chase Elliott finally get that first win that he has before hand only to slip away before. Will Jimmie break the barrier & get his 8th championship? Will Kyle Busch shurg off his 2nd place finish to get his 2nd championship? So many questions, so little time... So a run down that has happened (thanks again to @DNAsports & many others) Monster Energy: -Darrell "Bubba" Wallace Jr. join Richard Petty Motorsports as RPM forms an alliance with Richard Childress Racing & Chevrolet - William Byron will drive the 24, while Chase Elliott will drive the 9 - Aric Almiorla joins Stewart Haas Racing & Kurt Busch resigned with SHR - Ryan Blaney joins Team Penske in a 3rd car - Paul Menard joins Wood Brothers Racing - Erik Jones joins Joe Gibbs Racing - Kasey Khane goes to Leavine Family Racing Predicitions ROTY: William Byron Regular season champion: Martin Truex Jr. Playoff champion: Jimmie Johnson Will Ford switch cars in 2019? Yes, I see the Mustang coming in, especially if the reports of Ford discontinuing the Fusion are true. Any new manufacture plans? I think we may see Dodge announce something if the muscle cars have anything to say. Welcome to 2018, let the fun begin!
  5. Formula 1 Grand Prix Branding

  6. 2017 Jimmie Johnson "Legendary" scheme. This car is Metallic Blue with Gold door numbers, sponsor decals and stripes. This is my second scheme I am trying to actually get on a car. I would like to see this run at the 2017 Daytona 500. (So far no luck contacting Hendrick Motorsports)
  7. Like most folks, the time I learned and had my first exposure to racing tends to be the time I consider the "glory days." There are a lot of changes or other things which can be argued or discussed, but frankly, I just like the look and appearance of the mid-1990's Reynard chassis of the Indycars, or CART Champ Cars, following the split. In this series, I'll be posting some liveries of cars which I either admired at the time (replicated to the best of my ability), or modern-day liveries on that Reynard chassis. To begin, my favorite paint scheme of the time, Tasman Motorsports, and Andre Ribero: This next one might blow some minds, but it's a tribute to one of the greatest American drivers, even if he was in a different series- It would have been interesting if he can spent some time in Indycar as some others of his generation did- #3, and The Intimidator:
