A full POV ride through of the refurbished Test Track ride in Epcot. It's really cool and suites the theme of Future World much better than the previous attraction. The look is very similar to Tron. Some people like the old version better. What do you think?
Here is the on ride picture of me taking the video:

Test Track is a giant slot car attraction at Epcot at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. It closed for refurbishment in April 2012 re-opened on December 6, 2012.[3] It is now sponsored by General Motors' Chevrolet brand rather than General Motors as a whole, who sponsored the attraction from 1999 up until the refurbishment. The ride is a simulated excursion through the rigorous testing procedures that General Motors uses to evaluate its vehicles, culminating in a high-speed drive around the exterior of the attraction. The official theme song for the ride is "Test Track Medley".
Test Track soft-opened to the public December 19, 1998 after a long delay due to problems revealed during testing and changes to the ride design which prevented the ride from opening on its original date, May 1997. Instead, the attraction officially opened on March 17, 1999. Test Track replaced World of Motion, though it uses the same ride building.
Before the 2012 refurbishment, guests rode in "test vehicles" in a GM "testing facility" and were taken through a series of assessments to illustrate how automobile prototype evaluations are conducted. The highlight of the attraction was (and still is) a speed trial on a track around the exterior of the Test Track building at a top speed of 65 miles per hour (104.6 km/h) making it one of the fastest Disney theme park attractions ever built. After the 2012 refurbishment, guests design their own car in the Chevrolet Design Studio. Then they board a "Sim-Car" and are taken through the "digital" testing ground of the "SimTrack". Throughout the ride, guests see how their designs performed in each individual test. After the ride, guests can see how their car did overall, film a commercial, and race their designs.
