Green Scene Aston Martin Racing Green, as seen on Jabowski's EVO X, is linked to one of the most famous colors in motorsport: British Racing Green. Although there is no definitive version of BRG, it's usually about as dark as green gets before someone thinks about adding "black" to the description. It first came about early in the 20th century, and became especially popular when the famous Bentleys of the 1920s picked up the green ball and ran with it, as it were. These cars won at Le Mans and took victories at places like the famed banked circuit of Brooklands, not far from London, England. BRG was also the color of many beautiful and legendary Jaguar D-Type racers. Over the years, British Formula One teams have used BRG in their livery. It's still part of the 2010 Lotus team's livery and also a component of the marque's badge. Many road cars have come in BRG. And not just Brit ones, either. Versions of the Mazda Miata MX-5 have been available in this hue. The Miata was inspired by the Lotus Elan, remember. When a revived Aston Martin went into endurance racing (like Le Mans) early in this century, its DBR9 cars were painted in a lighter, more metallic variation. Which is now called Aston Martin Racing Green.
