So I was at K1 Speed in Irvine the other day and I had a wonderful idea for Autopia.
Wouldn't it be AWESOME if Autopia was turned into a Go-Kart Track? How about tracks 1/2 and 3/4 (the pairs that run more or less parallel) get turned into two LARGE tracks with no rails and some barriers (you know, standard kart tracks) and we just take electric karts around for a few laps?
Now before you point this out, OF COURSE this won't work. Even in a few minutes of casual thought, I can think of about 1,001 reasons why this is not at all practical for Disneyland, at least not without serious modifications, but it's fun to imagine... zipping through there at 20-25 MPH instead of 6 on a slick track... a nice heat of laps and then out! Put it one good long back straight and it's perfect! The electric karts at K1 can touch 40 on the long straights.
It would probably be easier for Disney to turn one of the parking lots into a Go-Kart track with an identical layout and scenery to the real thing behind the berm.
I'm babbling... just a fun/silly idea that I wanted to share.
