Phillip Island’s world-famous Grand Prix Circuit will be paid a visit by international Disney Pixar star and car racing legend, Lightning McQueen from May 19 to 20 when the V8 Supercars return to the circuit for the 2012 championships.
The star of the movie CARS will make his first trip to Phillip Island during the event as part of the Truck Tour which will see a range of fun family activities and CARS experiences set up trackside.
Visitors can get up close and take a photo with Lightning McQueen, and also have the chance to see V8 Supercar legend and Truck Tour Ambassador Mark ‘Frosty’ Winterbottom. Winterbottom lent his voice to the CARS sequel for the incredibly patriotic character of Frosty the racecar, and is the first Australian sporting star to feature in an animated film.
With free entry for children twelve and under, young CARS fans and their families can enjoy the racing-inspired attractions with their favourite CARS characters. Games and activities include learning the rules of the road on the Junior Drivers Training Track, a green screen allowing visitors to appear in a scene from the CARS movie, jumping castle, wheel change station and Race-O-Rama PS3 play-offs, all with stunning Phillip Island scenery as a backdrop and the live excitement of racing action as the V8 Supercars tear around the circuit!
Disney Pixar’s CARS Truck Tour is a great day out for the whole family at the world renowned Phillip Island Circuit with the sun and scenery for which the area is famous!
