Painting Challenge "Mount(s) and Rider(s)" Bonus Round

The F1 Winners from 1976

Having given my competition a three week head start, I am finally making my first submission to the AHPCV.  For the mounts and riders bonus round, I submit a set of 6 representing the six winning car and driver combinations from the 1976 Formula One World Championship.  This was a very dramatic season, so dramatic that they made the movie Rush based on it.  We have
  • Niki Lauda Ferrari 312t2
  • James Hunt McLaren M23
  • Mario Andretti Lotus 77
  • Jody Scheckter Tyrrell P34
  • Ronnie Peterson March 761
  • John Watson Penske PC4

This Year's Painting Challenge

So I signed myself up for the 5th Painting Challenge with a target score of 1000.  So far I have finished bugger all and I'm not expecting to get my first entry in until after the 25th.

For some reason Curt insists on starting this thing at a time of year when only a complete troglodyte would have any time to paint.  Now I may fall into this category, but it also coincides with the end of the academic term (i.e. my busy time at work).  So while others are joyfully painting figures, I will be marking final exams from 130 first year students who don't want to take statistics.  Plus getting ready for Christmas with my daughter coming home from Uni and my mother in law visiting for the holidays.
