The Grand Prix of Mosport Racefest

It was a preview of the upcoming Grand Prix of Mosport as #Toronto enjoyed the Racefest at Yonge-Dundas Square on Tuesday July 17, 2012. Pit Stop demonstrations and Team Canada Grand Prix racing team autographs were some of the attractions at the square. Champion driver Ron Fellows was also racing media on the Ultra 94 race simulator.
Several cars were displayed including the American Le Mans Series prototype car from Muscle Milk Racing and a sporty, supercharged, red Camaro. I was sad that I missed the Michelin Man (Bibendum).
Grand Prix drivers Tony Burgess (Toronto, ON, Dyson Racing, ALMS) and Kyle Marcelli (Barrie, ON, Merchant Services Racing, ALMS), above, along with drivers from other of the weekend series races met with fans.

NOS Energy Drink had their cool cube van and for a small donation you could pick up a delicious sample from the beautiful NOS ladies.
Canada's Premier Country Music Camping Festival "Boots and Hearts" was giving away blow up beach balls as they promoted the summer event to be held August 10-12, 2012 in Bowmanville, Ontrario.
