IMSA have commissioned me for many year to produce their official Spotter Guide (the Rolex edition gets released later today!). In recent years this has extended to additional illustrations for internal and external presentations and illustrations for their on track support, web and the IMSA app. An example of this is IMSA’s overview of the 2016 Classes post on IMSA.com
These blank car illustrations will also feature in the IMSA Raceday viewing guide booklet and around the track on hoardings aiding fan, old and new. A great example where a company can re-use and maximise their ‘investment’ in quality illustrations.
Happy New Year!
A quick post to bring you up to speed on SpotterGuides.com plans in the first couple of months of the new year.
Towards the end of January, the official IMSA Spotter Guide returns. Available as an online three page guide or as part of IMSA’s raceday viewing guide, available at the circuit, it will feature all the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and Continental Tires SportsCar Challenge entries for the Rolex24.
The online guide is due to be released on 25 January and will be update during race week and will be the first look for a large number of liveries, including one team which will have a cover on their car, literally until Wednesday afternoon.
The printed guide will be available at the IMSA Fan zone inside Daytona International Speedway from Thursday of race week.
Thanks to IMSA once again for partnering with Andy Blackmore Design and almost every IMSA team for assisting.
Once the guide is out the way (plenty of liveries to work through as well – see Andy Blackmore Design for more info), I will be turning my attention to the 2016 Racing Wall Planner which will be released during February.
As before this will be available online, or, if you prefer a larger professional quality will also be available.
Sponsorship is unconfirmed for the ELMS, WEC or Le Mans guides. If your company is interested in getting their brands in the hands of die-hard race fans, contact me and I’ll forward you the Partnership Deck.
The Spotter Guides for the WEC IMSA double header event at Circuit of The Americas in Texas are now available to download.
The Official IMSA Spotter Guide features all four TUDOR classes as well as the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge. You can download the official guide from the dedicated page.
The NISMO Spotter Guide for the WEC round features all 31 cars with the latest liveries and driver changes. You can download the WEC guide from its dedicated page.
Both guides will be kept up to date during the week with driver and any significant livery changes.
Thank you to Nissan and IMSA. Without their support, there would be no Spotter Guides.
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 19th or 20th January and will be updated during the week as new drivers are announced.
The IMSA Spotter Guide for Petit Le Mans is now online to download as the usual IMSA booklet, or as a 2page 11×17 Poster style layout. Please note, I will be at the event, so there will be no further updates to the guide this week. You can download the guide here.
Update: Since the guide was completed on Tuesday, there have been a number of changes to drivers and cars.
#7 PC – New White Base #8 PC – New White base with Dracula (!) on front and black sidepods #91 GTLM Replaced Dominik Farnbacher with Kuno Wittmer. #93 GTLM Replaced Kuno Wittmer with Dominik Farnbacher. #19 GTD Added Mark Kvamme and Daniel Llyod. #45 GTD Added Andrew Palmer. #48 GTD All Black livery with reflective elements #51 GTD South Aftrican flag graphics added. #73 GTD Added Norbert Siedler. #94 GTD Replaced Paul Dalla Lana with Christoffer Nygaard #007 GTD Blue pinstriping added and Royal Purple Branding
