Ice Car Racing


Toronto's Honda Indy won't be in town until July and much of the motorsport world in Ontario is hibernating. If you want the thrill of car racing you can always check out the world of ice racing.

The Canadian Automobile Sports Club - Ontario Region (CASC-OR) is running the Magnum Ice Racing Series in the Haliburton Highlands. A large park has been taken over by the organizers and the raceway was laid out in the snow and water was placed on the track. Surprisingly the water turned to ice and a great new element was added to car racing up in Minden, Ontario.

Snow and ice chips gather in sections of the track and put up a surprising tail when cars roar through the mixture or slam into the snowbanks along the side of the course. You can watch the races from the large snowbanks and look down at the track and the cars.





It's free to watch these exciting matches of rubber and ice or metal and ice so go check them out during the weeekends in February (Saturdays and Sundays) finishing February 27-28, 2010 at the Minden Fairgrounds.
