RISING LOCAL ARTIST COMMISSIONED FOR RALLYDAY XL 2024 ARTWORK

Castle Combe Circuit is pleased to unveil the official artwork that will take pride of place on the programme cover for this year’s Rallyday XL event (28-29 September).

The bespoke hand drawing was created by 13-year-old Swindon-based artist, Morgan Guillery, and depicts confirmed event guest, Jimmy McRae, piloting his iconic Group B Metro 6R4 rally car through a water splash during the 1986 Lombard Rally.

Morgan – more commonly known as ‘Morgan G Makes’ on social media – has been creating waves in the south west’s automotive scene recently, with his beautiful artworks that have attracted several significant companies and vehicle owners to commission him for bespoke pieces.

Rallyday organisers contacted Guillery to recreate the iconic Jimmy McRae image, following the confirmation that the rally driver will once again be attending the two-day rallying event – this time around to celebrate his 50th year within the motorsport world.

The official handover of the finished drawing was commemorated with Morgan providing Castle Combe Circuit’s Managing Director, Graham Marshallsay, with the framed original at the Open Day & Media Day back in March.

During the unveiling of the artwork, Morgan commented on the partnership: “I was so excited to be given this opportunity, especially to honour such a legend in motorsport as Jimmy McRae. I put in a lot of effort – it’s definitely the most intensive drawing I have done so far. I’m really proud of it and can’t wait to see it on the programme!”

Castle Combe Circuit’s Events Manager, Rich Perry, was also positive about the news: “I have seen Morgan’s artwork shared with various users of the circuit and couldn’t believe this fantastic work came from such a young artist. When I reached out, Morgan was very keen and has been professional and hard working to ensure the best quality result.”
