The Hollywood Road Race is a theme race where the cars must be a car from a movie or TV show.  This race will be run on my Thunder Road track. Check out a clip of the track below.

  • Cars must be a car from a movie or TV show.  Cars cannot be a character car or cars that represent/advertise movies or shows, but should be an actual car IN the movie or show. Some manufacturers have made movie and TV show cars.  You can enter those or you can modify and paint your own.  If you modify and paint your own, it doesn't have to be the exact year, make, model, or wheels, but should be close. Try to keep to the spirit of the theme.  Do your best to replicate the paint job, but it doesn't have to be perfect.
  • When you send your cars include the movie or show that it is from.
  • Try to post a youtube clip or picture of the car in the movie or show.

Each racer may enter up to 3 cars. There will be a $1 entrance fee per car.  Mail-in cars should be sent with return postage if the racer wants them back.  

Where to send your cars

Mail cars to

Don't forget to print an ID card with your entry and include what race this is for as I have a few races coming up close together.

Entry deadline

Cars due Feb 18, 2017.  Racing will start the following week.

Scoring and Winning

Depending on the number of cars, this will either be a single or double elimination tournament.  

I will be keeping points for anyone entering any of my races this year and crown a champion at the end of the year.

Penalties

I think I have describe the spirit of the theme pretty well.  Try to keep to it, but I don't want to argue about whether this or that will work.  Just try to make it look like your favorite movie or tv car.  

Tracks & Dates

This is not a series event.  It will be run on my Thunder Road track.  See video at the top.

Winners and Results

Races will be videoed and posted here and on Youtube, as well as other sites and Facebook pages I have.

  • Here is a link to the internet movie cars database. http://www.imcdb.org/ It could be a great resource for this race.  If you have a favorite movie, you can check what cars are in it.  Or if you have a favorite car, you can look up by make and model what movie it was in.  



  • How is the Bluesmobile not in that list? Friggin' Ghostbusters car... — redlinederby

In the movie Click (2006) there is a Cadillac V16. The protagonist drives this before visiting his family in 2017 (lol). Looks nice in the snow.
