Aussie touch for Cars film

Townsville Bulletin - - News -

THE sec­ond in­stal­ment of the Dis­ney Pixar an­i­ma­tion Cars is set to have a dis­tinctly Aussie flavour, with V8 Su­per­car driver Mark ‘‘ Frosty’’ Win­ter­bot­tom to voice a cameo char­ac­ter. Win­ter­bot­tom’s car char­ac­ter Frosty in Cars 2 will be decked out in Aus­tralian colours and he will, of course, be speak­ing in an Aussie ac­cent for the role. ‘‘ It is an awe­some op­por­tu­nity that comes along once in a life­time and see­ing the char­ac­ter on the big screen for the first time will be an amaz­ing feel­ing I’m sure,’’ said Win­ter­bot­tom yes­ter­day, days ahead of his next race at the Aus­tralian Grand Prix in Mel­bourne this week­end. ‘‘ I’m a huge fan of the orig­i­nal Cars film, it is a movie I’ve watched count­less times and I just can’t wait for the se­quel, Cars 2.’’
