We are building a new website to replace our old tired one and need a cool new logo to go with it. We provide software and other products to run Cub Scout Pinewood Derby type races (gravity powered races with small wooden cars built by children).
I would like something that incorporates a formula one race car, black & white checkered flag (or pattern) and the website's name, "GrandPrix Software Central". The logo should also convey that software is a big part of our business, maybe by making the wheels or rims of the car being CD's or something of the sort.
Attached are some of the design elements of the new site, to give you an idea of the color scheme. Website content is on a white background. Menu boxes have a light gray background.
