Dividing a WinForms ASP.NET website into two but making it appear as a single website

I have a winforms asp.net website but I would like to add some MVC content to it.

Unfortunately the site itself is absolutely stuffed full of winforms code, including having winforms references in the masterpage file.

I was wondering if it would be possible to split the site into two - so from an ASP.NET point of view there were actually two websites, a winforms one and an MVC one, but to a visitor to the site it would look like a single site.

If it is possible can anyone point me to how to achieve this, ideally some sample code.

you "can" do it but it will require a lot of work and will not be workable if https is involved since the parts can't co-exist but must reside on different websites (instances) a total rewrite would be the best option, you can reuse a lot of the existing code
