[IC] GMK Grand Prix - GB starts October 9th!
« on: Wed, 18 December 2019, 16:01:35 »
Hello Geekhack!




This keyset was inspired by Tech3 early 2000s colorway. A 250cc class motorcycle racing team. Olivier Jacques, and Shinya Nakano rode for them that year and they had a fantastic season, culminating with Olivier being crowned the World Champion in 2000. As a motogp fan, I have long wanted to make a set based on this theme.

The colors are based off the team livery that season, primarily cold grey and acid green with orange accents. Acid green is for Olivier Jacques and orange is for Shinya Nakano. I hope other fans of motor sports will enjoy this keyset as much as I have creating it.

Just to let you know, there is already a GMK Pole Position that has been interest checked. You might want to resolve the naming conflict:

I was just thinking the same thing, the mods are softer on the eyes. I really like the look of this one, Neon Yellow is my favorite color. I went all in on GMK Night Runner, now I have to get this one. lol

Cool colorway, it looks fairly close to GMK Flow but with more contrast. Are you using RAL colors or Pantone?

Can't wait for the novelties so that this set becomes even more special.

Due to name conflict it was changed to GMK Grand Prix to still fit the theme :)

I'm not against this idea. So Mostly containing the 1U mods as the spacebar are covered with the space kit right?

finally somebody makes the play to recolor the gmk hammerhead accents and run it. Considered doing this myself. Glad to see it happen. good work  :thumb: could you release the alpha/mod color as well?

The kit was based on RAL colors except the Orange accent which is Pantone atm. Will try to find the best RAL to fit the colour.

I think that would be a great addition, for reference, you can check Mito's last sets which were expanded for the most compatibility that I've seen in a base kit (he separated the numpad but not necessarily relevant in this case)

I personally like the idea of having more compatibility without having to commit to kits that one might not actually have a need or plan for; only for those obscure kits to become coveted in the used market down the road. I've recently sold my GMK 3Run because compatibility with that set was near impossible and would love to replace it with this.


Any chance of including a Formula 1 car in the novelties? I know the set was inspired by MotoGP but the colorway reminds me of Brawn GP including the Orange which almost matches the highlights of Barrichello's helmet and the rollbar of Button's car perfectly!

Hello people,

Added RAL color references
Added placeholder for the 40 kit as people are asking for it on several networks. Preparing it.
Also Added render on the Bauer with Orange accents.
While doing the render for accent, the yellow numpad looked really weird with the orange enter on a full size. That's why now the numpad enter key is a part of the addon kit.

The Yellow is a lot more green than I was expecting, but I like it still. Always could go Night Runner Safety Yellow as GMK can match it  :p

Looking forward to seeing this run at some point, will most likely pick it up.

This hobby is going to bankrupt me. Iím in. Super excited to see the novelties. If the anodization or enamel infill can be color matched to the rest of the set and if thereís enough interest, a Rama cap could have a lot of potential with this set.
