New Cars 2 Characters: Gorvette and Cartrip

We have recently been treated to 2 new Cars 2 characters, based on (in a similar vein to John Lassetire) real life celebrities. These are Jeff Gorvette (based on and voiced by NASCAR star, Jeff Gordon) and Darrell Cartrip returns (based on and voiced by announcer, Darrell Waltrip), below are the official descriptions, character images and turntables:

Jeff Gorvette

Official Description: 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.

Darrell Cartrip

Official Description: 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.

We also have the two awesome new posters for Cars 2 (below).
