Suggested correction: The camera in the trailer may be a TV video instead of a camera.

Continuity mistake: Before Lightning falls off the end of Mack's trailer, you can see Snot Rod and one of the other cars running alongside the trailer. But when the camera moves to show Lightning coming off the trailer, you can see alongside the trailer in the background, and the cars are now missing. Camera switches back to the front of Mack, and the cars are back alongside again.

Other mistake: At the start of the film when the commentators are explaining the tie situation between the 3 cars the green arrow to the car is out of alignment and misses the car, instead pointing at the track.

Trivia: The canyon around Radiator Springs looks like old car bonnets and ornaments.

Other mistake: Lightning Mcqueen is trying to become the first rookie in Piston Cup history to win the Piston Cup, but Doc Hudson won the Piston Cup in 1951 the first year that Hudson Hornets were produced, which also would have made him a rookie.

Suggested correction: Darrell actually said, "And land Dinoco?" So that means Lightning is actually the first rookie to win the Piston Cup and land Dinoco.

First, Darrell made that statement before the race. But it wasn't about the first rookie to do both because McQueen says of the Piston Cup "I'll be the first rookie in history ever to win it."

Suggested correction: This assumes that the development of this universe follows the same rules as ours.

Doc Hudson: The deal was you fix the road, not make it worse. Now, scrape it off! Start over again.
Lightning McQueen: Hey. Look, grandpa, I'm not a bulldozer. I'm a race car.
Doc Hudson: Hohoho. Is that right? Then, why don't we just have a little race - me and you?
Sally: What?
Lightning McQueen: Hohoho. Me and you? Is that a joke?
Doc Hudson: If you win, you go and I fix the road. If I win, you do the road my way.
Sheriff: Doc, what're you doing?
Lightning McQueen: Hahaha. I don't mean to be rude here Doc, but you probably go 0-60 in like, what? 3.5 years?
Doc Hudson: Then I reckon you ain't got nothing to worry about.
Lightning McQueen: You know what, old timer? That's a wonderful idea. Let's race.

Question: Can someone explain the mechanics (and physics) of how Doc's advice to "Turn right to go left" helps with McQueen's drifting?

Answer: Instead of sliding on all four tires, he's only sliding on the back two. The front two tires are turned to align with the direction of travel, allowing the car to maintain greater control of the drift. The slow-motion scene when McQueen first accomplishes this shows what's happening.
