From looking at these existing racing team brands, the colour schemes that the teams incorperate into their car colour pallet, is the same colours that feature in their logo. All of the teams incorperate either black, white, yellow, or red in their colour scheme. These colours allow the brand to attract to the majority of the target audience, and also to stand out from other cars/brands. In my own car brands, I will incorperate black, white or red in one form as either using one colour as an accent or as the base of the logo. Red indicates danger, which also can be interpreted as competition. This could be a reason as to why red is used in the majority of these colour schemes. Red can also be interpreted as hunger, thus a hunger to win the race.
I created a colour scheme using Adobe Colour CC. These colours are what are harmonious to me and what could possibly be used as a colour scheme for one of my own car teams.
