"Porto Corsa" (Cars2) Project

I love Italy (even more than I love slot cars) so I was pretty excited to see glimpses of Italian landscape in the previews to the new "Cars 2" movie. And, while the movie is just okay, the fictional Italian town of "Porto Corsa" that Disney created for the movie is pretty cool. And, it seems like a good place to start in dreaming of a new slot car track. Apparently, the fictional town is based on a combination of Portafino and Monte Carlo. It's easy to see the influences. I'd love to build something themed on this. So, I got to tinkering with a preliminary design....

Some of the artwork of Disney/Pixar's Cars 2 "Porto Corsa"...

Ah, Bill glad to hear from you again. You've been in my thoughts as it's PWD time in Cub Scouts again. My car (for the father son race) is a wedge of swiss cheese with a bunch of Forstner holes in the middle (since I had to redistribute the weight anyway). I'll post a pic when it's all done. Anyway not to venture too far from Italy...

I too am looking forward to your vision and workmanship again. As some say on this side of the pond... "BRING it!!"
