Snowmobiles and ATVs

Sleds and quads raced around the outdoor track at the 2014 #Toronto International Snowmobile, ATV and Powersports Show. The free parking at the International Centre was a great bonus as it sped up the process to get into and enjoy the enormous show. By the time noon Saturday rolled around the place was jammed with visitors enjoying the 15 manufacturer displays and the many other purchasing opportunities. Some of the top brands included Artic Cat, Ski-Doo, Polaris, Honda and Kawasaki.

The weekend's 27th annual show takes place October 24-26, 2014 in Hall One and Hall Two of the Convention Centre located at Derry Road and Airport Road. Saturday hours are 10am to 7pm and Sunday hours are 10am to 5pm. The outside track was made of hay and the machines tore up the route with their powerfull bursts of speeds in several classes of races and vehicles. Then the Niagara ATV club took a spin through a mud pit and came out slightly worse for wear.
The noon time extreme show jumping had to be cancelled on Saturday due to the high winds which made the high flying leaps a little too unsafe. The freestyle event featured crazy tricks and daring jumps and was sponsored by Ultimax Belts. Used and new part markets along with accessories and winter wear were available for purchase and you could check out tourist destinations for the off road adventurists among the long lines of vendors.

The show reminds us to 'Enjoy Winter in Ontario' and with the tourist destinations promoting the cold season and the winter toys for big boys and girls, you can soon be enjoying the 30,000 km of maintained trails in our province. Prime Minister, the Rt. Hon. Stephen Harper, P.C., M.P. letter to the show noted that "Canada is filled with scenery that inspires and leaves us breathless. From coast to coast to coast, our wilderness is a treasure to behold, but much of it can only be visited by getting off the roads and onto the trails. It is no wonder that Canadians and visitors to our country value snowmobiles and ATVs for their ability to help us escape into these wondrous landscapes." In support of winter sports the Canadian government will pump $10 million into snowmobile trails through provincial snowmobile organizations.

The outside extreme sports area featured two separate ramps that were used for some freestyle jump demonstrations by Sam Rogers, Fred 'Fuzzy' Rasmussen and Charles Bush.

As we come up to the winter white season remember that the North American International Motorcycle Supershow (the Big One by the Airport) will be at the Toronto International Centre January 2-4, 2015. This show will have you missing summer even as the snow flies.
