Formerly known as Mosport, Canadian Tire Motorsport Park is the perfect fit for Drive Festival. Located just north of Bowmanville, Ontario this venue is a one-hour drive from Toronto with even easier access via the new Hwy 407 extension.
Originally built in the 1950s the Grand Prix Track hosts IMSA, Nascar and a wide variety of races. The track was also the home of F1’s Grand Prix of Canada until 1977. In 2011 Canadian Motorsport Ventures Ltd. (CMV) which includes Orlando Corp. Chairman Carlo Fidani and Canadian road racing driver purchased the facility. Since that time many changes have taken place, including new facilities, track and park improvements. Drive Festival is thrilled to partner with such a world-class facility.
The Grand Prix Track is 4 Km in length and is known as a very high-speed track. Drive Festival is using an approximate 2.2 Km section in reverse for our Dream Car Speed Run. The elevation change and vantage points make an incredible experience for drivers and spectators alike. The
2.9 Km Driver Development Track is perfect for our on-road performance, and premium test drives with its 18 turns drivers will get to experience the vehicles fully! Just outside the Driver Development Track is a Skid Pad where demonstrations will also take place. The karting track will showcase autonomous technologies while a challenging off-road test track puts the SUVs and trucks to the test!
The 23,000 square foot Grand Prix Event Centre has unobstructed views of the Grand Prix Track and is the location of our VIP Pavilion. Sumptuous food, cocktails and premium parking, as well as VIP Pavilion access, are included with the VIP tickets.
Our Drive Festival philosophy is that cars are more exciting when driven. We look forward to seeing you at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park on September 11-13, 2020. Get ready for Canada’s new automotive experience!
