Another (slightly more detailed) trail braking illo, this time for Motor magazine in Australia.
In this version our driver wears the classic Converse Chuck Taylor All-Stars.
The white car illustrates the “skando (Scandinavian) flick” rally technique, which involves steering away from the corner then turning in.
The blue car shows the technique for using a handbrake, or “the pro-drifter’s joystick”. Click here for more info.
This illustration for Motor magazine was my first experiences using 3D software (the marvellous Google Sketchup) to create an illustration.
I was given some reference material and asked to illustrate the racing line around a corner (this route minimizes time spent in the corner, while maintaining speed).
The green arrow represents the correct racing line, the red one shows the way to the ditch.
