Red Fox Raceway is the host for the 2018 Wing Car Worlds. They have arranged for an caricature artist to do drawing impressions of the participants. Here are a few samples of their work.
 
How many of them can you name?

As Bill said, Facebook seems to be the only communication channel utilized these days by so many. The info on OWH is simply material Paul Kassens, 'Mom' at OWH, has snagged and reposted there.

I agree that the caricature artist is not only very talented but a positively brilliant idea for Gugu to have implemented.

But there's another angle here.

Long-term Slotblog members will know of my decade-long campaign to get full names to be given in race reports, as a measure of respect for the racers' hard work and accomplishment.

Anybody seen the artist's name mentioned anywhere? To me, that's sad... I can almost read his name on one of the few drawings he signed but not well enough to hazard posting it.

I'll spare everyone my analysis of why the artist has been (IMO) disrepected in this way.

MG.

 

I've emailed Gugu to ask his name. Hopefully, I will receive a reply.

I have added the artist's information to the original post. His website URL was on the back of the shirt he was wearing.

I don't know for sure if any are still available. I would suggest that you contact Red Fox Raceway in Brazil for more information.

Petr Krcil certainly has it going on, doesn't he? Geez, what's the average lap count over second place in his wins? :shok:  :good:
