a patented “slotless” racecar, in the
late 1960s by Robert Philpott and Holden Barre.
These “slotless” cars were featured
on ESPN television in 1982 where several of the
NASCAR drivers competed in a race driving scale
models of their cars.
Then in 1985,
PhilBAr teamed with Thola Productions to design
state of the art systems now being used in major
the spring of 1994, the first attraction to
feature our patented PhilBArTrol™ technology
was installed in Southern California. Because of
this state-of-the-art control system, we were
able to create sophisticated interactive show
effects that fit into the park’s theme.
This installation has been followed by
remote control installations at theme parks in
1996, 1998, two in 1999 and another in 2000.
