Yeah, I would guess that each seat would have an individual screen that shows their car and its scores.
I originally thought that six riders would design their car collaboratively (like CyberSpace Mountain and Sum of All Thrills) and then the car would adjust parameters to react to the ride elements accordingly (rougher/softer through the blocks, faster/slower in the speed section, etc), but it doesn't look like that's the case.
I'm still looking forward to it though. Hopefully I'll be able to go down to Orlando again this coming summer...
Looks pretty good! Very smart of them to incorporate your car in the after-ride exhibit. I might actually stop in that area the next time I visit. I never did before because it was always too crowded for what it was.

That sounds right. I am very curious to check this out, as the old Test Track was my favorite attraction at Epcot.
Always trying to keep YOU entertained! Now with more Ice Bat!

I hope this will improve Test Track, as the old Test Track is my favorite ride at EPCOT.

Man Tries to Sneak Into Epcot Center by Impersonating Federal Agent
Seventy-four year old Emerito Pujol wanted to to explore Disney’s Epcot Center, but he didn’t want to pay the hefty $99.79 admission fee. So he devised what he surely thought was an innovative plan to get inside the theme park’s gates for free.
At the turnstile, the Miami man flashed a badge declaring he was an “honorary member” of the American Federation of Police. Then he told the ticket collector he was a police officer looking for somebody who may be in the park.
When the Epcot employee balked at his explanation, Pujol quickly changed it up. Now he was a federal agent “guarding somebody important.”
That didn’t work either and the real police were called in. Instead of trying to trick them with his fake badge, Pujol ‘fessed up and is now being charged with unlawful use of a police badge, falsely impersonating an officer, and petty theft.
Spaceship Earth and Future World are pretty cool, and may even be worth a C-note to check out. But at the price Pujol was willing to pay, we’d have to say Epcot’s probably not worth it.
While the reimagined Test Track – Presented by Chevrolet is still a few weeks away from opening at Epcot, we have a sneak peek of the attraction’s new pre-show to share with you today.
Upon entering the attraction, you’ll be invited into the Chevrolet Design Center where you can design your own virtual custom concept vehicle at design kiosks. Here, you’ll be asked to make a few selections that really allow you to create a unique vehicle design that’s personalized to your taste.
First, you’re asked to draw an outline of your vehicle. If you don’t have the steadiest hand, don’t worry because you’ll have a chance to smooth out the shape before moving on. Next, you’ll be asked to make some choices that adjust the shape, length and width of your vehicle.
Then you’ll select your type of engine, choosing among several fun choices, including Solar Drive, EV Hybrid, and Plasma Burner, among others.
Next up, you’ll make choices on your design’s aesthetics. Here you choose the face of your car, the paint color and graphics, and even choose the wheel size and style.
And you’re design is complete and ready to be put to the test. From here, you’ll board a SimCar to see how your design compares, as they’re put to the test in the categories of Capability, Efficiency, Responsiveness and Power at different points along the attraction’s track.
