If you would like to commission your own bespoke Racing J Manta based on something that is close to your heart or you have a unique design of your own then get in touch and we will help to turn your idea into a sculpture as unique as you are.
This bespoke Racing J Manta was a wedding gift from Sahara Force India F1 team to Checo Perez and Carola.
Juvenile manta is a third of the size of the largest Carbon Art sculpture, the ‘Aero Manta’, the sculpture that brought together all my engineering skills and sculpting ambition.
The manta ray is one of the oceans most recognisable creatures and as anyone who has dived with these fish can testify to their grace and beauty. Manta rays are found in the world’s tepid oceans and are true ‘aero’ fish.
Engineering methods, materials and selected parts from modern F1 Grand Prix cars are used in the production of this sculpture.
