DDW Pic 361. Tomorrowland Speedway
I took this shot of Tomorrowland Speedway from the new walkway leading up to the indoor queue for Dumbo. The Speedway is the only Tomorrowland attraction that was there on opening day in 1971. Back then it was called the Grand Prix Raceway. These "racing" cars are powered by Briggs & Stratton 9 horsepower engines and they reach a top speed of 7.5 miles per hour. There are a total of 146 cars at a cost of approximately $6,000 each.
