A "construction manager". Yeah okay.

NOT that I wouldn't be head over heels to see the Speedway hit the bricks. I don't think it needs to be like RSR...I think DCA deserves to keep that one unique to just that park. I would MUCH prefer to see a TRON themed ride there that uses better tech and effects to allow guests to kind of do what the Speedway does...drive a vehicle, or in this case a lightcycle through the grid and race others etc. THAT would fit the bill for TOMORROWland...not Cars.

Still, I don't buy it.

The rumored TLE had a TRON lightcycle coaster, so I wouldn't be surprised if it replaced the speedway.

Thumbs up Manager

Hi there,

No work will really start until the current crew are nearing the enf of the current fantasyland project, which by the way is looking good.

If you don't believe then just wait out and it will come true.

If this is true I give up. Because theming obviously doesn't mean anything to them anymore

I think it would be cool... put some Cars scenary up along the roadway, switch out the cars. Maybe current cars need refurbing anyway so just switch them out? Seems to me to be an easy fix to take an existing ride and theme it to Cars instead of creating a whole new Cars ride.

as for theming with Tomorrowland... really, not sure in first place how the speedway as it is is really futuristic or Tomorrowland-ish. I hope they do it.... just as long as doesn't end up being closed down during one of our future trips as is my son's new fav ride!

I can't believe they'd spend money on this when there are so many things they cut.

This rumor has been going around since Cars came out - not Cars 2, the original.

I don't know.... talking independently living cars seems pretty futuristic to me.
