It's modified a bit, but the font it derives from is called Impact. If you get the proportions right only nerds will know the difference.

I think someone needs to cover a Challenge car in Braille.

Canoe deleted, it was delicious.

Always wondered if GRM's artist had an affinity for KMFDM. 

Same/similar font and color scheme and the angry shifter guy looks a lot like something BRUTE! would draw.

Yeah so Aidan Hughes (BRUTE!) who did most of the KMFDM stuff did one of our shirts about 10 years ago when our regular guy wasn't available. Our regular artist, Simon Paul, does a lot of work for bands like Skinny Puppy and Download and Ohgr and all of their side projects. He's a really talented cat wo didn't really know much about cars when we started working with him, but totally understood the kind of feel we were going for. 

Here's his 'gram: https://www.instagram.com/simonpaul23/?hl=en

They say you can't hear a picture, but this one proves that wrong.

Impact was my guess. It's considered a bit of a cliche among design nerds, I think, but it's a great font. I've made good use of it in user interfaces. Used it for the LCD display of a marine autopilot once.

Yeahit's versatile as a display font. Be careful, though, because it's the "meme" font, and you can unintentionally turn thiings into memes with bad proportions, bad placement, etc.
