Black Beauties
Voordat een race-auto daadwerkelijk wordt ingezet, rijdt deze vaak talloze tests in een neutrale kleurstelling. Tegenwoordig is dat steeds vaker zwart: De kleur van het carbonfiber waarvan chassis en body zijn geconstrueerd.

Before a car drives its first race, it is often tested for a longer period in a neutral livery. Often this is a black outfit, the color of the carbonfiber of which the car has been built.
