This is from Sebring testing...

I noted the Peugeot in an article about yesterday's testing looked weirdly-resized, right-clicked to 'View Image' and got the full-size version... since it was listed as:

I wondered if subbing in 'BMW' wouldn't find our boys. Lo and behold:

I love the color-coded side view mirrors! Looks like something from JC Whitney. How long until it's the new fashion statement?

Many teams use color-coded mirrors to make the cars more distinguishable to the pit crews. Maybe these really are sourced from JC Whitney because they antipate losing a bunch in the, uh, close racing.

Yeah, they correspond to the stripes on the windshield, you'll notice.

Corvette and Flying Lizard do the same thing (different color mirrors/windshield graphics for their two cars). The Risi and Tafel F430GTs did something similar and the Penske Spyders were also different (#7 had the red arches over the seats).

My shots from last year's event at Lime Rock are linked below for reference sake.
