Lightning McQueen’s Canadian Road Trip






National tour will cross the finish line in Halifax on the opening weekend of Disney·Pixar’s “Cars 3”


Fans of Disney·Pixar’s beloved “Cars” franchise will have an opportunity to see a life-size lookalike of the five-time Piston-Cup champion when Lightning McQueen’s Canadian Road Trip Turbo Charged by Canadian Tire hits the road later this month making pit stops at eight cities across Canada.  The cross-country tour kicks off in Vancouver on April 29th and wraps up in Halifax on June 17th, all in celebration of the release of Disney·Pixar’s new movie “Cars 3” on June 16.

Throughout the road trip, Lightning McQueen’s life-size replica will be stationed at select Canadian Tire locations in eight markets including Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal and Halifax.

CARS 3…Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson)..Lightning McQueen is world champion—a modern-day racing legend who’s riding high with five Piston-Cup wins under his hood. Suddenly, he finds himself faced with a new generation of racers who threaten not only his dominance in the sport—but the confidence that got him there. Determined to get back to the pole position, the #95 must decide if his love for racing is enough to fuel the comeback of his life…©2016 Disney•Pixar. All Rights Reserved.

At each location, racing fans will have the chance to have their photo taken with the life-size character car, plus test their motor skills at a remote control racecar track.  In addition, Disney Channel will be hosting a Kids’ Activity Pit Stop area with free “Cars 3” arts and crafts for visitors.


“We are thrilled to be working with Canadian Tire on ‘Cars 3,’ one of the most highly anticipated releases of the summer movie season,” said Greg Mason, VP, marketing, Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Canada.  “We’re looking forward to taking this tour to so many ‘Cars’ fans around the country and what better place for a pit stop on a cross-Canada tour than Canadian Tire.”


“The Canadian Tire team is very excited to be working with Disney to host the first-ever ‘Cars 3’ tour in Canada,” said Eva Salem, VP, strategic marketing, Canadian Tire. “We’re eager to bring this exclusive experience to our customers and Canadians alike.”
