Here we are in the middle of January and most racers and racing fans are beginning to go a bit stir crazy. There is no new racing on TV and few of us will make the trek to the north country to watch ice racing. Fortunately, this weekend in Toronto we have a bit of motor sport excitement. In its fifth year, the Canadian Motorsports Expo has a lot to offer to racers and fans alike.
Fans will get an opportunity to meet NASCAR star, Brad Keselowski on Sunday. On Saturday, IndyCar veteran Dario Franchitti will be on hand to chat with the fans as well. No word on whether his wife, actress Ashley Judd, will be on hand but we can hope! I would suspect that most NASCAR Canadian Tire Series competitors will be around, even if some of them are just visiting the show.
There will be lots of vendors selling everything from racing memorabilia to speed equipment. Of course there will be LOTS of exciting race cars, from NASCAR to local oval racers and IndyCar to the drag strip.
The show runs from Friday, January 21 through to Sunday the 23rd at the International Center, just down the road from Pearson International Airport. Parking is free at the IC, which is a great deal anywhere.
