Back in September I posted about Audi's 'Experience Quattro' First-Person Slot Racing. In this lovingly filmed short mini-documentary released by Audi, titled Painting Coconuts (the title is explained in the video), we discover the people who built the slot-car track, the incredible attention to detail and even why there's an old-school Audi Quattro in the barn.

Painting Coconuts, goes behind the scenes of the Audi quattro® Experience - a one-of-a-kind interactive installation that put participants in the driver's seat of a custom-made 1 to 32 scale Audi A4 to test their on-track skills using the world's first iPad enabled slot car controller.

Captured through the eyes of track maker David Beattie of Slot Mods USA, the film offers a unique look into his personal story, passion for the art of custom track design and the sport of slot car racing. It also delves into the process and challenges his team faced to execute a project with so many innovative features.
