Never happy with sitting idly on the sidelines, Disney/Pixar continued their new Cars 2 character roll-out and unveiled a new addition to the cast: Rip Cluthgoneski. It looks like he is considered an underdog in the World Grand Prix, but a racer that has demonstrated the ability to pull an upset. View the hi-res image and character description for Rip below and get to know him a bit better!
The former European colony and newly independent Republic of New Rearendia is desperate to put their name on the map – the #10 open-wheeled racer Rip Clutchgoneski is their best bet. After putting together a remarkable string of qualifying races, Rip’s entry into the World Grand Prix is clearly the Cinderella story of the competition. Though Rip credits luck for his chance on the international stage, it’s really skill and exuberance that brought the proud New Rearendian racer to the starting line.
A Cinderella story always makes a competition way more interesting! We will find out just how well Rip does when Cars 2 hits theaters on June 24!
