That livery never gets old ^^
Yet another Audi R8 GT3 skin. This one is based on a Blancpain GT Asia livery.
This was the Phoenix Racing Asia entry at the Sepang race, with local hero Alex Yoong at the wheel with his fellow countryman Keong Wee.
Yoong is an expert of both the car (he has won the R8 LMS Cup three times) and the track, but things did not go too well and the team only finished 8th.
Better luck next time ^^
Another livery from the Adelaide races that opened the 2018 R8 LMS Cup: the Absolute Racing R8 driven by Sun Jingzu.
This R8 has been engaged in many events for several years, including GT Asia and Blancpain races.
I am not totally satisfied with the way the shiny and matte parts of the car are rendered in AC. Perhaps it is my lack of skills, perhaps limitations of the game engine. We’ll see when ACC comes out ^^
Here is another skin from a contender in the first couple of races of the 2018 R8 LMS Cup.
This is the R8 engaged by Tony Bates, who made a successful comeback after his accident last year.
He set the quickest lap of the week-end and won the second race.
The car is also raced in Australian GT in a similar livery.
A skin for the current leader of the 2018 Audi R8 Cup :
Andrew Haryanto was known for the Asia Super Trofeo Cup. He showed his pace in the R8 too by winning the first race and finishing 3rd in the second of the 2018 Cup.
Both races were held in Adelaide and were part of the Adelaide 500 event with Supercar series. Unfortunately we don’t have the Adelaide street circuit in Assetto Corsa. But Andrew Haryanto’s performance earned him a seat in the Audi team for Spa 24h 2019. So the game screenshots are just an anticipation of things to come. ^^
A couple of words about the skin itself: for some reason mixing a carbon detail texture with the main texture did not come out well, with white-ish bleeding around the decals. Therefore I had to put put the carbon pattern in the main textures.
