Steller Motorsport has revealed the concept behind the liveries its pair of Toyota GT86 GT4s are sporting in this year’s British GT Championship. The upgraded cars raced at Oulton Park earlier this month but, despite many fans getting a close-up look at the camouflage liveries, few noticed just what the design actually represents. In fact the geometric shapes are stylised outlines of each circuit appearing on this year’s British GT schedule: Oulton Park, Rockingham, Snetterton, Brands Hatch, Spa-Francorchamps, Silverstone and Donington Park. The liveries, created by Chris Briggs Design, were selected by the team during the off-season, as a point of pride in the Buckingham-based team’s 2018 programme, to showcase the selection of circuits the team will visit during the year. “We wanted to do something different for this season,” said team owner Gary Blackham. “Along with our re-launch as Steller Motorsport, we wanted to make sure that our GT86 GT4s turned-heads in looks as well as in results. “The British GT Championship visits, we think, some of the best circuits in the world, so making our cars a tribute to some of the UK’s top venues, as well as Spa, felt like a good idea. We hope our fans love the look of the GT86 GT4s as much as we do.” The question now is: can you spot all seven circuits on the cars?! Round two of this year’s championship takes place at Rockingham this weekend.
