Trackdayz License plate cover

Hi,
I'm searching for a license plate cover, which can be easily installed and removed on trackdays. But also safe: no scratching the paint please…
Any ideas ?

Velcro squares stuck to the license plate and a piece of white poster board cut to size. easy on easy off and you can write in your car number if you wish.

Not sure how it is in the US, but companies here have dropped people with no wreck via VIN AND/OR plate for track/autox.

Probably 25% of the street cars that participate in HPDE events put tape over their license plates.

Why is anything more complicated needed?
