(BOWMANVILLE, ON – April 26, 2011)   With Mosport’s 2011 season

getting underway next month at both the road course and oval track, Mosport’s popular RaceTour will get Durham residents revved-up this weekend (April 29 – May 1) at Five Points Mall in Oshawa.


Located in the court in front of the Metro grocery store, the display will feature several stock cars that will be on track this year at Canada’s fastest half-mile paved oval, Mosport Speedway.  Also featured is the sleek, exotic American Le Mans Series prototype, representing the cars competing at Mosport’s biggest event of the season, the Mobil 1 presents the Grand Prix of Mosport, on its new date July 21-24.

The highlight of the weekend takes place on Saturday from 11 am until 2 pm.  In a special Five Points Mall Kids Club event, Mosport Speedway drivers Kevin Pickford (Pure Stock), Bill Northam (Late Model) and Jim Rossiter (Late Model) will be signing autographs and posing for pictures in front of their race cars, so be sure to bring your camera. The Rock girls from Durham Radio’s own 94.9 The Rock will be on hand as well.


Five Points Mall will be giving away six "VIP Prize Packs" that includes Mosport Speedway general admission tickets, a pit tour to meet the Five Points Mall driver Bill Northam, concessions voucher, a pace car ride and the opportunity to drop the green flag in one of the Saturday night heat races.


There will also be a draw to win tickets to Mosport Speedway, along with season schedules and other info for pick-up.
