For this long Victoria Day weekend, the best place to be is Mosport International Raceway. This weekend is filled with races which include the Pirelli World Challenge for GT, GTS & Touring Car Championships, the SCCA Pro Racing Trans-Am Series and the Castrol Canadian Touring Car Championship.
To allow the media to get a taster of the action planned for the weekend, a select few were invited to go for some hot laps with professional drivers. The cars provided for this exhibition run included a full-racing spec Porsche Cayman, and a street legal 2010 Dodge Viper ACR coupe. I choose to have a go in the latter.
The car stays beautifully planted through the corners, the 1000-lbs of downforce its aero-bits create certainly helps there. On the back straight, it can nudge nearly 300 km/h!
It was an amazing rush to ride in such an awesome car driven by an awesome driver.
So if you’ve been wondering what to do this weekend, going to Mosport to watch the professionals race is probably the best activity you can do.
