  • Backstage at 'Cars' Race Rally

    Story at http://www.dlrpmagic.com/today/2007/...ace-rally.html

    20 February 2007
    Backstage at the Race Rally

    Next in the backstage preview video featured on the new Disneyland15.com is Cars Race Rally, introduced by DLP-Imagineering head Peter McGrath and then shown in concepts, models and real-life. The video gives us our very first look at the design of the 12 spinning cars, as well as some never-before-seen concept art for the entrance building.

    After some footage from the scene in the Pixar film itself which inspired the attraction, the video quickly switches to a shot of a four-angle elevation for a yellow car, which surely must be the life-size Luigi we saw a few weeks ago.



    The camera then pans upwards to show a 3D sculpt of the new ride vehicles, certainly in the style of the cars from Cars, but not without their own unique charm. The tall rear spoiler in particular is a very stylised addition that will make these vehicles stand out from the others in their very realistic landscape, and certainly give the attraction a much more "Toony" style.



    Next we see work on a larger scale model of one of the vehicles, which will total 12 and have infact just been installed on-site this week.



    Finally, an interesting view over the Toon Studio area from above the loading area of Cars Race Rally, before the video presents several pieces of concept art, of which only the piece shown above has never been seen before. It shows a neon sign with the "V8" logo, as well as the storefronts to the right of the attraction entrance. A backdrop to the attraction is provided by one of the film's iconic rock formations, but it remains to be seen how much of this will make it off the drawing board.

    Whilst some may fear the trouble Disneyland Resort Paris might be causing itself by marketing a "simple" tea-cups-style attraction so heavily, there still seems no doubting the excellent care and attention this relatively minor addition is thankfully receiving.
