Building the world’s greatest slot racing track
After losing his office job a few years ago, David Beattie decided to pursue his true passion: slot car racing. He began by building models in his garage, and eventually founded his own company, Slot Mods USA. Last year, Beattie teamed up with Audi to create an enormous, interactive slot car track in Toronto as part of a promotion for the company’s Quattro A4 sedan. Originally housed within a transparent shipping container, Beattie’s model is no longer on public display, but its creation is the subject of a fascinating short film called Painting Coconuts.
