Hector Cademartori is the official artist of the 2018 Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach

He started out drawing racing scenes of Lotuses, BRMs and Ferraris in his note pads at school, and his fellow students loved them. Over time he learned to appreciate the history of racing in the 30s, 40s, 50s….and the romance of those years which lend themselves to beautiful art. Now, LACar’s own Hector Cademartori has been chosen as the official artist of the 2018 Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach.
