Been a busy few months with liveries and Spotter Guides, so updates have been less frequent on here than I would desire.
Anyway, a big update on the site in a few weeks with many of the 2017 liveries, but first off, just to let you know a number of new Spotter Guides have been released on sister-site, SpotterGuides.com
In addition to the usual IMSA WeatherTech and Continental Spotter Guides, updated for each race weekend, I have recently released the Official IMSA Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA by Yokohama Spotter Guide and the Official Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America Spotter Guide. Both series racing this weekend at CoTA.
With these four series, a total of 13 cars will be carrying my liveries, plus a couple more I helped on a little. Pretty cool!
New regs, new cars, new liveries and lots of new driver combination makes the Official Spotter Guide a must. The guide will be updated later in the week with any driver or livery additions (probably after Tech is completed). Livery wise, all except Rebellion have previously been confirmed.
If you are at the circuit, a printed guide/program will be available later in the week.
The guide also features a number of my own liveries.
Thanks to the teams for their help with reference of the guides, to IMSA of course, the proof readers and you for downloading and sharing the guide!
I will be partnering with IMSA again in 2017 to produce their Official Spotter Guide for the series. This will be released in print form (at the track) and online at SpotterGuides.com
The online guide will be available here, at SpotterGuides.com, and a smaller size version at IMSA.com from Tuesday 24th January. This will be kept updated during the week.
The guide will be updated prior to each event and the plan is to have this online on the Monday before the race from Round 2 (Sebring).
Thanks to commissions from IMSA and Lamborghini Squadra Crose, EVERY race at this weekend’s Continental Road Race Showcase event at Road America has its own Official Spotter Guide on sister site, SpotterGuides.com
You can download a combined Spotter Guide (PDF) featuring the four series or download the individual guides at the following dedicated pages on SpotterGuides.com
- IMSA WeathTechSportsCar Championship
- IMSA Continental Tires SportsCar Challenge
- IMSA Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA

Thanks to IMSA and Lamborghini.
A new addition to the SpotterGuides.com series with the TORA CJ Wilson Racing Cayman Cup, a virtual race series run by CJ Wilson Racing and TORA, The Online Racing Association. The guide features 42 entries including the guest rides of Marc Miller and Danny Burkett, CJ Wilson Racing’s ‘real-world’ racers in the IMSA Continental Tires SportsCar Challenge.

In addition to the usual WeatherTech/Continental Tires entry lists, IMSA have commissioned me to produce a range of support series guides, starting with the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA.
As a further bonus, Lamborghini North America also commissioned me to produce a Spotter Guide for their 2016 Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America Championship which kicks off this weekend.
Hankook have been a partner with my Spotter Guide series for a number of years and proud to announce their return for 2016 to showcase their four cars in Formula Drift

With IMSA’s ROAR test just days away, ahead of the Rolex 24Hours, a couple of liveries are starting to surface on social media.
Turner Motorsport have a 2 car entry in the newly named WeatherTech SportsCar Championship with the all new BMW M6 GT3. More details on the livery later, but this is a development of the successful Z4 GT3 livery. Look closely and you might spot some differences between the 96 and 97 cars.
Turner are very pro-active on Social media, so you can catch up on their progress on Twitter.

I am excited to announce I will be working with IMSA again in 2015 creating the art for the official IMSA Spotter Guides.
Starting with the Rolex 24, IMSA will print a ‘Race Viewing Guide’ booklet available at the circuit as per 2014.
Online, we will be reverting back to the traditional 11×17 Poster Style Guide for you to download which should make things easier! The online guide will be released on spotterguides.com and imsa.com on 19th or 20th January and will be updated during the week as new drivers are announced.

At the end of May, Nissan Motorsport announced they will enter the 2015 FIA World Endurance Championship including Le Mans with a full-factory effort of two LM P1 cars. The car will be called the Nissan GT-R LM NISMO and will make its testing debut towards the end of the year. In addition to sponsorship of my Le Mans Spotter Guides, I was separately commissioned to create some supporting car illustrations showcasing Nissan’s current and future involvement.
I produced a number of vehicle illustrations to support their media coverage for the announcement and for Le Mans.
This is a great example of how illustrations can give a client a consistent message, free of different photo shoots and lighting challenges. The images were utilized a number of times making them excellent value for Nissan.
You can read more about this project in the dedicated post in my Portfolio Section.
