Disney/Pixar’s Lightning McQueen and Mater set for SpeedFest

Friday, May 29 2015

Lightning McQueen, the hotshot racecar in Disney/Pixar's Cars, will be a star attraction when American SpeedFest returns to Brands Hatch on Sunday 7 June, and he will now be joined by his best friend Mater too!

Catch Lightning in his iconic 'Rust-eze Red' livery, with his famous number 95 and go-faster lightning stripes emblazoned on the side.

Mater, Lightning McQueen's best friend, is the latest addition to the bumper off-track line-up, complete with his trademark rusty paint job and toothy grin. In the Cars movies, Radiator Spring's most famous tow truck, Mater, is proprietor of Tow Mater Towing and Salvage, grand storyteller and the heart and soul of the town.

Lightning McQueen and Mater will take pride of place in the Hollywood car display, which will be easily accessible in the venue, allowing film fans of all ages to get a good look and pose for a fantastic photo opportunity.

Both cars have been loaned to the circuit by Disney/Pixar.

This is yet another fantastic addition to a bumper Hollywood car display that includes replica star cars from the Transformers film series, a 'time-travel-prepared' DeLorean, and much more!

Brands Hatch Motorsport Events Manager David Willey commented: "Having Disney/Pixar's Lightning McQueen and Mater at American SpeedFest III represents a major coup for the event. The off-track show gets bigger year-after-year, and I'm in no doubt that the trend will continue next weekend. I would like to thank Lightning McQueen for bringing his best friend Mater, too!"

Admission to the event is free of charge for under-13s, whilst there's a discounted rate for 13-15-year olds. Adult tickets are £21 online. Click here for more information and to book tickets.
