Porto Corsa is a location that appeared in Cars 2. It is where the second out of three races in the World Grand Prix is held.

Cars 2

Porto Corsa is a typical Mediterranean coastal tourist town located in Italy. It hosts the second race of the World Grand Prix. This race's track passes through the streets of the town, which are partly paved.

Near the end of the race, a huge crash involving most of the racers (not Carla Veloso or Nigel Gearsley, they spun out previously) occured, which has Shu Todoroki hit by the pulse accelerator, and Miguel Camino tries to brake but fails. Then comes Max Schnell, who also tries to brake but fails, and they are all sent down like a slide. Raoul ÇaRoule and Rip Clutchgoneski come, and crash as well. Then Jeff Gorvette and Lewis Hamilton come and brake sucsessfully.

In front of the crash, Lightning McQueen and Francesco Bernoulli were racing towards the finish line. The race ended with Lightning winning and Francesco coming in second.

Near Porto Corsa is a small village named Carsoli.
