The 2011 Canadian Motorsports Expo kicked off yesterday at the International Center in Toronto’s west end. While not on the same scale of PRI south of the border, the show still offers more than enough action to break up the winter with a bit of bench racing. The show is about the same size as last year, but includes a bit more variety in the displays.
For the fans, the highlights will likely be a meet and greet with Dario Franchitti today or Brad Keselowski tomorrow, along with lots of race cars from 3,000 horsepower alcohol funny cars to on and off road racers.
Interestingly, the most excitement yesterday (aside from the Inside Track girls of course) seemed to center around a crusty old 1972 Chevy Nova! This wasn’t just any Nova though, this was a car raced by legendary Canadian racer Don Biederman. It is about to be restored to racing condition.
John Walker is at the show today and I’ll be back tomorrow afternoon, so you know we’ll have tons of photos to share! For now, we’ve got a teaser gallery after the break.
