Ben Bray, "Benny THE KID", in his Mack Truck Sponsored Top Alcohol Funny Car in a Apocalypse Now vibe, "Just love the smell of Alcohol and burnt rubber in the morning", which is surprisingly appropriate for Funny Car racing.
A quick rough sketch toned with dry marker and made into a cartoon in Photoshop. A Funny Car is already a caricature of a car, so here it ends up as a cartoon of a caricature.
Brett Steven's Top Alcohol Kitten Car Care Products Funny Car has a problem with bounce at 2/3 of a quarter mile. It bounces all over the track and the sparks fly. Terrifying.
Lamborghini Murcielago, "Puts the fear of God into you. And we wouldn't have it any other way." to quote Jeremy Clarkson .
This time with a bit of technology thrown into the tool kit to make it photorealistic. This was just done in Photoshop, but we also have Elastic Reality to warp things in a more controlled way.
Nitromethane burning Topfuel dragster. Darren Morgan has Australia's fastest Oil Fuchs Topfuel machine. The smell, the noise, the flames and the carrots. Lamattina, the other sponsor, grow carrots. Lots of 'em.
Online Motor Sport Clothing Store Logo. Motocross Bike and V8 Supercar based.
Shadow DN1 from Formula 1 around 1973 when they had high airboxes and huge slick tires. The current F1 cars have narrow ribbed tires, and despite being the fastest cars ever due to aerodynamic design, don't have the appeal of the older machines. The races are dull too... and by shear coincidence, this car is on the cover of MAY/JUN 2006 Vintage Motorsport magazine!
Note that CART cars still look a lot like this. The winner of the 2006
Indy 500 looks a lot like this, 30 years later.
This is a drag racing doorslammer, doing the Australian circuit. Old style bodies on Supercharged V8s. Photographs and video do not express what you FEEL when these monsters roar.
The Top Alcohol Funny Car, TA/FC, is also back racing in Australia, mostly by the same Doorslammer teams. See them at WSID, Western Sydney International Dragway, and with TV coverage on Speed Machine and Speed Week.
This is a quick color test of a Lamborghini Gallardo. The type of 4 wheel drive that isn't out of place in the city, a country road, or anywhere everyone isn't related. This is the first supercar since the Countach to catch my eye.
V8 Supercars, Holden V Ford, nose to nose, in Australian Motorsport.
We have a 2011 variation, Olden V Furd, of this as a poster in the online store:
V8 Supercars kind of have the same place in Australian motor sport as NASCAR racing has in American. Pixar's CARS features talking cars, and this could be how Holden would look.
The UTE is the Australian Trademan's sports car. The working mans V8 2 seater that also can carry a load. The ideal partner would have sex appeal, not mind a beer or three and have a matching checked shirt.
The original is A4 400dpi CYMK. Enquires for T-Shirts of this design
welcome. Here is a detail of the sexy girl from this illustration.
The lead free with UOP Shadow cars were a bed of unsuccessful ideas in Can-Am. A series that produced the fastest road racing car ever, the Porsche 917/30.

Nitro Funny Car...these earth shaking drag racing machines are probably the second most awe inspiring machines man has made, after the Saturn V rocket!

Motorcycle racing is something my father has always followed, but Valentino seemed to have been noticed by everyone in 2001.
This finned Gulf Porsche is what closed cabin sportscar racing was all about in 1971. Aggressive and shark like here.
The beautifully finished long tail Porsche 917LH actually lost its cooling fan during the race and the fan went flying. The 917 had an air cooled flat 12. During development they tried blowing the air up and down, but went with down. Saying the Porsche engine is air cooled ignores the huge amount of oil and oil coolers used.
This is the Gulf version of the 1971 917LH. It claimed fastest ever pole time that year.
The Pink Pig, 917-20. An experiment, that resulted in a wide squat body, so they painted it up with the cuts of pork. The sponsor, then didn't want to put their markings on it. Amazing.....
Rough sketches done in pen and marker, then put together in Photoshop... the car image doesn't have a driver in front of it. I don't have photos of the drivers either.
A quick sketch. just pen on paper. The 1972 Can-Am Champion...
Denny Hulme was the main McLaren Team driver through most of the Can-Am
series.. The Bear. The M20 car itself was easily beaten by the Porsche
917/10s in 1972. Dry Markers and Pen on Paper.
Tom Daniel was a model car hot rod designer, and his most famous creation was the Red Baron. This is a slightly reworked cartoon version. Rough pen and Dry Marker on paper.
1000bhp, turbocharged road racing perfection. It was too good, and effectively killed CAN-AM racing end of 1974, as it became too expensive to compete. Quick sketch.
