ABOUT THE CELEBRATION OF SPEED

The Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame (CMHF) is pleased to announce their 7th “CELEBRATION of SPEED” which will take place on Monday, August 7, 2017 with a Ride-Along and Track Day and program at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park on the Grand Prix circuit.

Enthusiasts and the general public, 10 years of age and older, are invited to go along for a “ride of their life” in some very exciting automobiles with some very well-known racing car drivers.

In addition to the wide variety of exciting Ride-Along cars, the Ron Fellows Experience will also return to this year’s event. 30 lucky riders will get the opportunity to buy tickets for a thrilling 3 lap session of the Grand Prix circuit at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in a Corvette Z06 driven by multiple series race champion, Ron Fellows.

The event will also provide the opportunity for 50 track day participants to have a full day of high-speed action piloting their own cars on the Grand Prix circuit.

All proceeds from the 2017 Celebration of Speed will go to help support the Canadian Motorsport Heritage Foundation which operates the Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame, a charitable organization founded in 1993, which works tirelessly to preserve and promote Canada’s rich motorsport history and heritage.
