Random # 186: MGB Roadster (and a Brief Exploration of International Racing Colours)


Classic British cars look good in just about any colour.  However, some hues really do set them off and add a big dose of class, as this magnificent British Racing Green (BRG) MGB roadster shows.  Nice.  Very nice indeed!   






BRG may be just about the most well-known of the international racing colours, possibly because its very name incorporates the country, sport denoted and the hue itself (Britain, racing and green) but other countries' own signature colour schemes are quite familiar to many people, too.  Take, for example, Italy's Rosso Corsa (red, made famous my Ferrari and Alfa), blue for France (think Bugatti, Matra and Alpine, to name a few examples) and the silver of Germany's Mercedes, Porsche and Audi.

Pretty much every nation involved in international motor sport also have their own racing colours.  For those interested, a Wikipedia link describing them is attached:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_international_auto_racing_colours.
