The countdown is on for the premiere of Cars 2 (in theaters June 24) and to get you all revved up, you can see two of the main character races… in real life!

If you get a chance to go to the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK, which runs June 30 to July 3, you can see Lightning McQueen and Finn McMissile (the new secret agent, voiced by Sir Michael Caine) racing against each other.

Although we here in North American get to see it before the Brits (it doesn’t open in the UK until July 22), this even should keep them in the Cars spirit until the momentous date. It would be cool to see these two Disney/Pixar life-size celebrity race cars up close and personal, and if you’re in the UK or just visiting during that time, you should go check it out. You can find out more about the Goodwood Festival of Speed by visiting the website.
