Put a Gift of Speed, Thrills and Excitement Under the Tree this Christmas
By Jim Clarke, Clarke Motorsports Communications/First Draft Media
There's a great way to a smile on the face of your favourite short track race fan during the holiday season.
Staff and officials at Canada's Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval have their sights set on another exciting year of action and are offering the chance to take turn some laps behind the wheel in a ride with the Peterborough Speedway Driving Experience.
With a resume that includes a win in the Hangover 150 endurance event at Ransomville Speedway and a number of top 10 finishes during this year's events on the Southern U.S. PASS Late Model tour, track owner/promoter J.P. Josiasse will guide participants through classroom sessions before sending them to the track to get the feel of a real racing machine.
"We're not looking to discover the winner of the next Daytona or Indianapolis 500," said Josiasse. "Each week, there are people watching from the grandstands who'd love to know how it feels to battle for the checkered flag in the middle of the pack and this is the perfect way to scratch that itch."
Josiasse says the Peterborough Speedway Driving Experience cars are fully equipped, 4-cylinder racing machines; on parallel with those regularly used in the track's Mini Stock division. Fitted with manual or automatic transmissions, professional motorsports seats and 5-point racing harnesses, participants can just show-up and drive – in the half-day beginner course or full-day corporate package – with safety apparel, including helmets and driving suits available at the track.
Fans can always find the latest off-season news, including updates on the 2016 schedule at www.peterboroughspeedway.com, by liking the track on Facebook or following it on Twitter. You can also download the free Peterborough Speedway app on your Smartphone.
