Fergus Truck Show 2007

During a visit to the 2007 Fergus Truck Show in Ontario I took some video of some of the matches and have been impressed by the amount of views on Youtube (almost 60 000 at the time of this post). The trucks spew large plumes of dark exhaust fumes as they muscle the load down the gravel course. Downwind of the trucks viewers become engulfed in a cloud of dust and oil.

The Fergus Truck Show is a huge event and well worth the visit.

Toronto Grand Prix in the dumps

The long anticipated merger of the CHAMP and IRL racing factions have put up the white flag and will become one - once again. Many think that the open wheel racing is destined to remain second fiddle to NASCAR but the spectacle of racing in the streets of a major city is truly an amazing event that outshines the race around an oval track. With CHAMP out of business fans can now concentrate on a single series.

Our race in Toronto has been shot down for 2008 and now one can only hope that it returns in 2009. I also hope that if and when they return to the big smoke that I will also return with a media pass.
