No disrespect to the late John Batchelor but if this livery used by his team in the 2002 British Touring Car Championship isn't completely all over the place and more so than it needed to be then someone please tell me what is?

Makes you slightly ill...
I do, however, love it as a middle finger to the authorities.
That's fair!

Happens when you have several sponsors with different colours. Beta = Orange. Central Park = Green.

1994 was a bit hit and miss in terms of liveries as the Pacific and Footwork attest.

I always rather liked the Footwork livery. It's what that Minardi livery earlier could have been. All the same colours, but incorporated much better (mind you, it's not fantastic either).

That said, the Pacific was a pig in every sense sadly.

The Footwork isn't actually that bad compared to their 1995 effort.

How the late Dale Earnhardt resisted the temptation to poke his eyes out when he first saw this livery in 2000 is anyone's guess.

Some NASCAR throwbacks just do not work with the forward number placement...

At least Denny Hamlin had the decency to fill the gap with a sponsor but I am not sure I like the colour scheme even if it is the colours of FedEx.

Real men race pink... with Japanese sponsors. John Watson, Bruno Giacomelli and Allen Berg in Porsche 962 at Le Mans 1990. They finished 11th...

Not so much the livery, more the shape of the car.
