Team Bigazzi 1988 ETCC BMW M4 Liveries for the Gran Turismo BMW M4 Gr.4.

Based on the Team Bigazzi BMW M3s used in the 1988 European Touring Car Championship.

Three liveries based on the 1988 European Touring Car Championship cars run by the works supported Bigazzi Team.

The team ran with several drivers throughout the year and the cars switched liveries at various points also.

Because of this, I made 3 liveries, one for each number with each number representing a different livery that was used during the year.

For example, car 52 started the year with Max Meyer sponsorship and traditional BMW M striping, entered Spa in Lease Plan colours and by the Silverstone Tourist Trophy was carrying May Meyer backing and with the striping in Italian Red and Green.

Across the year drivers Jean-Michel Martin, Jacques Laffite, Olivier Grouillard, Mark Thatcher and Winifried Vogt shared the driving duties.

With the Group A period being my favourite period of Touring Car Racing the lack of cars from that period meant that I built a number of liveries based on the cars under the title of “Project Group A”. Principally as a way of forcing my Adobe Illustrator skills to improve and so I could pull in liveries of that period onto their modern counterparts.
