Calling all graphics people...

Need to know what the Dura Ace typeface is called?

Pretty similar to Pace and Nasa too IIRC. ?

Anyone?

More than likely a custom graphic and not an actual typeface (unless someone has reproduced it)

There is an EPS file of that logo, I have it on my computer for some reason.

That is if you need nothing more than what is there, else look through trekky/starwars themes for something similar

Try:

http://www.abstractfonts.com/

http://www.dafont.com/

http://www.urbanfonts.com/

Look in the 'futurisic' sections.
But I'd guess like FluffyChicken that it's a custom job.

I use this at work...

http://new.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/

create a bit map of a few of the letters in isolation then up load it and it comes back with a list of similar or identical fonts.
