Hello lads!

I've noticed playing the mod 66 that Ferrari 312's drivers were wearing blue suits. That is common also to others team drivers in mod 66, such as Lotus or Ferrari 156 one. Only problem was that differently from those theams, where suit and knees colors are matching together, in Ferrari 312 this do not happen. Player and AI drivers were driving in sky-blue upper part of the suit and white knees. Sooo i've decide to do a "new" model to solve this problem. Starting from Jackseller's 16 bit drivers suit (great, great addon and full credit to the artist) I've changed the red stripes of his suit for Ferrari 312 on neck and arms' driver in blue. I've done this choice because if you look at some picture of the '66 you may notice that Parkes and Bandini during the '66 championship have worn a white suit with blue stripes. More over if you watch the movie "Grand Prix" you can see that it's the suit Sarti and Barlini are wearing at Monza. Nontheless I gave to drivers the same gloves Parkes used, black with some fingers on red. I feel this "addon" does not only correct an error in color-matching the suit and the knees of the drivers but it's also "lore friendly" :D :D
So here goes a picture and the file! Make a backup first and try for yourself!

P.S. please be gentle! it's my first time doin' an "addon" for this great sim I've been playin' for 12 years now :)

-UPDATE ver. 1.1 =  october 14
Modified file fersho.mip!
Now I've removed the Shell logo since i found no trace of it in any '66 picture and so i felt it was not historically accurate.
I've also added a readme file.
Who downloaded the first version, please download it again and replace the files.

Lads,

I must apologize. There was a Shell logo. Here I found a pic of Bandini from Monza '66 as a proof to that.
Sorry, here is an updated fersho.mip for those who prefer to have the Shell logo on the suit. Just overwrite the one in your dir:

\Sierra\GPL\cars\cars66\ferrari

Enjoy!

Tell me if you encounter any problem
