OPPORTUNITY FOR MEDIA TO EXPERIENCE THE LEGENDARY MOSPORT CIRCUIT THIS
BOWMANVILLE, ON, May 13 /CNW/ - Mosport kicks off the 2009 season this
weekend with the Victoria Day SpeedFest, May 15-17. Racing highlights include
the U.S.-based SPEED World Challenge for GT & Touring cars, the return of the
Trans-Am Series and the Castrol Canadian Touring Car Series.
The three-day event opens this Friday with practice and testing and we
have a unique opportunity for the media to experience the legendary Mosport
circuit as a passenger in a World Challenge race car.
Two teams - the Brass Monkey Porsche GT3 with team driver Tony Rivera (of
Texas) and the RealTime Acura TSX with Canadian Kuno Wittmer - will have
specially fitted passenger seats and take the media out on track for hot laps.
These same cars will later qualify and race during the event weekend (without
the passenger seats!)

supplied (only room for one passenger in the race car)
For Print & Online - we can supply photos if required
