Candy Cup

John Marine | 9:59 PM |
The Candy Cup is a GTR2 One-Make Series I made using the 2012 Alfa Romeo Mito of the Trackaholics Hot Hatch Euro Challenge. Despite its sweet name, Candy is an Italian manufacturer of home appliances. This is my latest One-Make Series concepts. The blog post here introduces you to this latest concept I've come up with. So prepare once again to delve into the world of this Texas blogging boy. This is John's Creative Space!

Candy Cup

Allow me to set this one up.

The Story.

A series featuring one of the trendiest European "hot hatches" was unveiled. Catered towards young drivers, racing variants of the Alfa Romeo Mito were created for this European championship, though this series features mostly Italian tracks and drivers. This series was able to obtain sponsorship from Candy- an Italian manufacturer of home appliances. Candy is the primary sponsor of this series. As many as 20 cars with identical liveries make up this field. Who can take advantage of the Mito's performance and prove to be one of the best up-and-coming racers?

The Competition Car.

2012 Candy Cup Alfa Romeo Mito
^ This Alfa Romeo Mito is adorned in Candy livery.

The car used is a racing-spec 2012 Alfa Romeo Mito. Exact figures are not known on this car, but it is a front-wheel drive car powered by a 1368cc Inline-4 engine. It weighs somewhere north of 1000kg. Each car has identical livery but with variations in color. There are 10 different color combinations. To tell each car apart, the odd-numbered cars have white side mirrors, and the even numbered cars have colored side mirrors. These are three-digit cars in the 200 range. The car is one of the many cars in the 2012 Hot Hatch Euro Challenge by Trackaholics.

The Racing.

This, like my Summer Speed Series, is all random with identically prepared cars. So anybody can win in theory. It is a fantasy series with fantasy drivers. In fact, I tried something different for this series. I used a name generator to come up with the driver names. Since this series is mostly Italian, most of the drivers have generated Italian names.

And in case you're wondering, here is the name generator I used: Name Generator on behindthename.com.

If I make a video featuring the cars I created for this series, you will see it here replacing this paragraph. Please stay tuned for updates; or better yet, check JohnMarineTube (my YouTube channel) for video updates.

A Special Shout Out (Bonus Section!)

Before I close this blog post, I want to salute a fellow blogger and skinner. Rendy of RENDY'S BLOG runs a blog featuring motorsports and some of his many creations. He mentioned me on Twitter and offered his thanks to me and another personality by the name of Racing Hearts Garage and the Global Racing League. The reason why Rendy mentioned us is because he felt inspired and motivated on the front of skinning cars by us. So if Rendy is reading this blog post, I just want to say thank you... and you're welcome.

If I come up with more material to share, you know I will share it here and elsewhere. Make sure to visit JohnMarineDesigns to professionally see my work. Thank you for reading! Take care and be well.
