Default COMPETITION: Design a new site banner

As part of the ever evolving face of the site, it could be time for a new banner, and as we know there are many talented graphics guys here on the site, we decided to open it up and see what you can do.

So, if you're feeling interested, we need a new banner to go at the top of the page, requirements are:
it must be 942 pixels wide, and somewhere in the region of 125 - 150 pixels high - width is a must, the height has a little leeway on it.
Do not include game specific logo's or names in the banners, as the supported games list changes over time so the banner will just end up out of date.
The google ads which are inside the current banner will be moved to above the page content so please do not leave a space for them.
There are no plans to change the existing site colors, so a good banner will perhaps use them, or be a good contrast to them.

Please submit your entries via http://www.nogripracing.com/newbanner.php, this will automagically check the size is correct and then create a post (in your name) in this topic with a link to the image. Remember to keep a super high quality version (uncompressed psd or png file) in case you are the winner.

The winner will receive 'Donated' status for life, and will be chosen by Jabba & Veloce.
3 runner up prizes will also be awarded, and they will receive 1 years 'Donated' status.



Closing date for entries is midnight (GMT) Sunday the 14th November.

Considering how well known the orignal logo is I think ya's should leave it as is.

Will the website's colour change to match the new logo, or does the logo have to conform to the current colour scheme?

I have no say in the matter so no need to please me, but things like this one - evolutions of the current banner - are my kind of thing.

Would be better without "this is not a long story about destination where I'm and my fellows are going, but about way we chose a long time ago - the drive....." - too many information out there, if you need a sentence - keep it smaller. New banner should have one option as well: simplicity.

Nice! Maybe a slightly more interesting character font or less sterile look, but otherwise a very good contender

thanks everyone for your kind comments, i would like to rework my design if its ok. Also for the slogan, (if we can quote someone)
"If you’re in control, you’re not going fast enough. by Parnelli Jones" would be my favorite.

This website has a top 50 automotive quotes list. Gotta love those old school guys.
