Sons and daughters of local Townsville celebrities were involved in a Cars 2-inspired race at the Townsville street circuit this morning.
Driving electric-powered ‘Lightning McQueen’ replicas, six young drivers were paired with a V8 Supercars star, and fitting, Bryce’s crew chief was Mark ‘Frosty’ Winterbottom.
Winterbottom stars in the Cars 2 film, making a cameo appearance alongside McQueen and McLaren Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton.
The Orrcon Steel Ford Performance Racing driver will compete with McQueen’s famous #95 on the window of his Falcon this weekend.
Local radio man Glenn Mintern’s son Flynn took today’s ‘Piston Cup.’
The fun event was enjoyed by all, with the on lookers getting a kick out of James Courtney’s attempts to push his driver around the circuit!
