MaskedRacer should be qualifying in the top 5 on the gridMaskedRacer should be qualifying in the top 5 on the grid
For the Ford liveries I am guessing it will be like this:

#66 = black car 1966
#67 = red car 1967
#68 = 2016 winner
#69 = gulf 1968/1969

I can't wait to see which liveries they use. Le Mans is usually the best for seeing retro liveries, especially in the GT Class

Do you mean that Le Mans is popular for teams to run retro liveries, or that something about the circuit makes the liveries better?

The former. And as the post above says it helps with retro merchandise too. So no wonder it's a popular thing to do

Thought I'd play with Paint on Windows for fun and get a rough idea of Ford paint schemes. Doubt it will be like exactly. Again just for fun.

Seeing as the graphics software used to draw those is a 2D raster application, they are all the angles.

I don't know if this will fit well here, and I haven't been able to find a good thread to ask about this in. But I have a technical question about the GTE cars. Since 2016, the front and rear diffusers on them have become less regulated. But I'm wondering what determines the size of them.

They're certainly not spec parts, and I know what's done up front is limited by packaging compared to LMP cars, but the rear diffusers are very different from car to car. But what determines the size and shape per the technical regs?

Seem to remember it can extend a certain distance beyond the rear bodywork. 100mm?

So a car with a long rear overhang can have a very long rear diffuser. A car like the Ford GT which was designed to the regs, more or less.

91 Germany Porsche GT Team Porsche 911 RSR M WEC Austria Richard Lietz Italy Gianmaria Bruni France Frédéric Makowiecki

Like #93. Feel it's the strongest driver lineup!
