Today 2 new Cars 2 characters were released, both you may recognize 🙂 The first is Jeff Gorvette (none other than Jeff Gordon):
Jeff Gorvette is one of the greatest American racecars alive today. Donning the stars and stripes of his country’s flag, the #24 Corvette C6.R has proven his ability to succeed on the big ovals and the road courses of the Grand Touring Sports circuits. Having moved from his hometown of Vallejo, California to Indiana to be closer to the racing world, Gorvette’s ability to accelerate at such a young age has turned hoods wherever he competes. His championships and number of victories are unmatched, making him a respected competitor—and legitimate threat—at the World Grand Prix.
- Fun fact: during animation the animators at Pixar positioned the cars on a rotating surface to get full 360 view, similar to how you would showcase a car at a real-life car show.
- Fun fact: Jeff Gordon will be voicing his own character, of course.
The second character that was released today was Darrel Cartrip.
Darrell Cartrip is a legendary multi-Piston Cup champion turned beloved racing announcer. The Kentucky-born #17 Chevrolet Monte Carlo is known for his wild color commentary, delighting Piston Cup fans with his humor, charisma and signature catch phrases—”Boogity, Boogity, Boogity! Let’s go racin’ boys!” He’s spent years on the track, in the pits and in the grease, and he’ll tell you all about it. This American Southern gentleman knows what it takes to win, and plans to bring that fervent expertise to calling the World Grand Prix.
- Fun fact: Darrell Waltrip will be voicing his own character.
- Fun Fact: Darrel Cartrip was a character in Cars, will he play a bigger role this time around?
