...remember... this is racing!

Sorry, Interstate has a speed limit.
And Belizio? That would be horse and buggy racing.
Or am I being to literal in interpreting the associative qualities of a 1980s revival of a 1950s revival of an 1850s typeface?

I agree with Nick. Here are a few ideas off the top of my head...



Stag Sans

Well it's something to consider, but not the absolute word.
After all, Saab uses Gill Sans as its corporate face, which I think is inappropriate, and it doesn't seem to be an issue.
But I think Chris' advice is good, which seems to be that if you're going for the contemporary look of, say, slab serifs, use a present-day original design, rather than a revival.
