In a few weeks the aviation world will turn it’s eyes to Reno for the National Championship of Air Racing. The annual event celebrates the worlds fastest motorsport. The first caricatures I did were of the racers the year they had to be cancelled due to 9-11. Everything was grounded. Anyway here is a new caricature with a racing theme. The race modified P-51 Mustang “Stiletto”. This radical racer had the famous belly scoop removed and a massive weight reduction program. She won the National Championship her first year, 1984, in the capable hands of her pilot Skip Holm.
