Cars 2 - Nigel Gearsley

Nigel Gearsley is a British race car from Warwickshire, United Kingdom. He is a professional race car who competes in the Grand Touring Sports 1 series and the 24 Hours of Le Mans with the number 9. In 2011 he took part in the World Grand Prix representing the United Kingdom.

Bio

Nigel Gearsley from Warwickshire, England, is an Aston Martin DBR9 racer bearing #9. He got his start racing the Speed Hill Climb—a unique, completely uphill race through the Aston Hill Mountain Area that his family has run for generations. Nigel’s racing career has been anything but an uphill challenge, as he’s won nearly every start in the past few years on the Grand Touring Sports Car circuit, including a string of podiums at Nürburgring and Le Mans. His cool British refinement makes him an imposing presence on the World Grand Prix courses.

Cars 2

In Cars 2, Nigel competed in all three races of the World Grand Prix, and at the Radiator Springs Grand Prix. His first appearance was at the Tokyo welcome party, shocked with the other World Grand Prix racers as they watch Mater drinking from the fountain after he eats a lot of wasabi. The dirt section during the Tokyo race was one of Nigel's best performances. He came in fifth place at the end of the race. In that race, his pit was at the end of the pit row, with Miguel Camino's pit on the left. In the Porto Corsa race, Nigel was following Carla Veloso to the third position. But then he blew up, due to the electromagnetic pulse generator used by the Lemons.

Thermal view of his crash

He is the second car to have his motor exploded by the lemons' electromagnetic pulse cannon, and the fifth car in general to be hit by the pulse. However, he got fixed and was able to race in London. During the final race, Nigel was between sixth and eighth position. In that race, his pit was in between those of Lightning McQueen and Francesco Bernoulli. He later raced in the Radiator Springs Grand Prix was seen in the 8th position during the race.

Livery

Nigel is painted dark green, with a black grille surrounded by yellow lining. He has two gray headlights surrounded by a light green swirl design, which is also depicted over his rear wheels. On his trunk, he has a black spoiler with the World Grand Prix logo. He has tires with chrome rims, and a skinny antenna erupting out of his roof.

Model

Nigel is an Aston Martin DBR9. With Jeff Gorvette, Nigel is the only WGP racer to be a precise model of one particular car, and therefore, to not be a Pixar in-house design. Indeed, while some other racers, like Lewis Hamilton or Raoul ÇaRoule, have a clear main inspiration, they aren't exact copies of the car in question.

He can reach up to 180 miles per hour, in 11.2 seconds. His engine is a 6.0-litre V-12, with a horsepower of 600. He can go 0-60 in 3.4 seconds.

Occupation

Nigel is a famous English race car, competing in their championship. He was recruited for the World Grand Prix in 2011, where he placed very well in, but also received some major damage in a huge wreck involving a long curved bridge and 6 other racers.
