    Lightning McQueen and Mack in the Flesh

    Disney/Pixar Cars Truck Tour is back to bring more high-octane fun to Australia! Revving up and getting ready to hit the track at selected V8 Supercars events around the country. Thanks to the partnership between Disney/Pixar, Mack Trucks, Life Like Touring and V8 Supercars, families and fans of the hugely successful Cars franchise will have the opportunity to ride, race and play their way through a dynamic Cars themed interactive zone. Yeah, baby!

    The Disney/Pixar Cars Truck Tour will bring the world of Radiator Springs to Melbourne on Saturday and Sunday of the V8 Supercars Phillip Island SuperSprint, 15 – 17 April. Fans can meet Mack the Transporter in all of his truck-sized glory, along with race-car star, Lightning McQueen. Get busy at Mater’s Workshop and learn all about car parts and how cars work, then transport these parts through to Luigi and Guido’s Tyre Challenge. This super-sized inflatable obstacle course is set in Casa Della Tires, which families will need to work together as a team to navigate and will be literally sliding down slopes and bouncing off the walls!

    With a whole bunch of exciting craft activities, an interactive iPad Zone, and the popular Cars themed trike-race-track. Had enough racing? You can recharge your batteries and park up for a bit at Flo’s Diner – just like in the movies – there’s something for Cars fans of all ages. Get ready for an action-packed day that’s sure to get your adrenaline pumping. On your marks, get set, let’s go!

    PLUS: If that’s not exciting enough, there’s even an opportunity to meet V8 Supercar’s real-life super racing champion, Mark ‘FROSTY’ Winterbottom.

    I can’t tell you how excited Indy is, jumping out of his skin is an understatement. He’s ready to go…NOW!

    We’ll Be There

    Sunday morning, we’ll be getting up close and personal with McQueen, Mack and Frosty ourselves and covering the event LIVE on Facebook and Twitter from 9am. Follow the hashtag #dpcarstour.
