How to Draw a Fast Race Car

Today I would like to show you one way to draw a fast cartoon racing car 🏎. This is one of the first things I showed my son how to draw, and of course it had to have fire shooting out the back! I tried to make it fun but easy enough for kids in pre-k and kindergarten, and anyone just getting started with drawing. Vrooom! 😎 – Patrick O.

Watch my video on how to make a fast race car drawing

In this video tutorial 🎬 I will show you how to fast racing car in easy-to-follow steps using simple strokes and shapes. If you would like to go at your own pace, the instructions are repeated below using animated GIFs.

Follow these animated step-by-step instructions that make a fast race car drawing easy:

  1. First draw the wheels of the cartoon race car. Start by drawing a medium-sized circle slightly to the left of the page for the back wheel of the race car. To the left of the first circle, draw a second smaller circle for the front wheel of the race car. Inside each wheel’s circle, draw smaller circles for the hub caps.
  2. Next, draw the bottom and back of the race car body. Draw a straight line connecting the first wheel to the second, and then two more little lines on either side. Then draw a vertical line up from the little line on the right to make the back of the race car.
  3. Now draw the rest of the race car body. Connect the top of the back line to the tip of the front line with a wavy diagonal line, to finish the body of the race car. Draw an arc on the wavy line starting above the back wheel to a spot above the front wheel, to make the roof of the race car.
  4. Let’s add a driver and some lights to the fast race car. Insert a little circle on top of the wavy line under the roof for a race car driver’s helmet, and finish it with a half moon shape for the visor. Draw a small half moon in the front and one in the back to make the lights on the race car.
  5. Now let’s draw a spoiler on the back of the race car. Add two small lines above the back of the race car and a sideways rain drop shape to make a spoiler.
  6. Add some flame decals to the door of the race car. Draw an arc up and to the right starting from the right side of the front wheel, and then a zig-zagged line down to add some fire decals.
  7. Finish with an exhaust pipe and maybe some real flames! Draw a small rectangle off the back of the race car to make a tail pipe (or is it a rocket booster?). Maybe add some flames shooting out of the back of the race car for super speed!

That’s it. Great job! πŸ†
