GRAN PRIX RACEWAY

(silkscreened, 30"x45") -sponsor: Goodyear
GRAND PRIX RACEWAY
Tomorrowland, Walt Disney World 1978
(off set printed, 30"x45") -sponsor: Goodyear
Designer: Richard Hebner
This opening year attraction poster for The Vacation Kingdom, used almost
identical artwork for Disneyland's 1956 AUTOPIA poster.
Oddly already outdated looking for even the early 70's, some alterations
have been made to the car, to refelct the Mark Seven Autopia type car
used by 1971 (and still today!) even racing numbers and flames have been
added to reflect Florida's version of this attraction. In 1978 a new "Grand Prix
Raceway" poster designed by Richard Hebner, replace the 50's style "Gran" Prix
poster. The newer one clearly is inspired by the motion picture poster "Grand Prix"
staring James Garner. (I'll post an image of the 1978 version on a later post)
Ironically Goodyear helped finace the motion picture and was also the sponsor
of this attraction.
It makes me wonder why a newer attraction poster wasn't produced for
Disneyland during this time to show the newer styled car shown here.
Even up untill the early 90's original styled 1956 Autopia posters were
were still on display at the Anaheim park --showcasing a car that had not
been in use 4 decades!
