Before drivers commandeer the roaring engines of fully prepped race cars, instructors give tips and basic instruction on racing skills, procedures, and safety. In drag-racing experiences, they set drivers loose on four solo races down the quarter-mile straight raceway, staggered throughout the day. During road races, participants begin with one lead-follow race, and then test their skills with two self-paced sessions. Participants refuel with included lunch and cold drinks, and can bring their own spectators or pyrotechnics teams.
Ontario Racing Source
G-force pulls faces taught as feet floor accelerator pedals. The smell of burning rubber fills nostrils. A halo of stadium lights illuminates a quarter-mile of pavement as it passes by in seconds. With help from the experienced instructors and drivers at Ontario Racing Source, anyone can zoom into drag races at the historic St. Thomas Raceway. Before each race, staff give racing skill and safety instruction, and show each new driver how to control their fully prepped cars using nothing more than the console and a few self-esteem-boosting words on how shiny they’re looking today. At regular intervals, visitors can also strap in behind the wheel of high-speed vehicles at the Grand Bend Motorplex and Toronto Motorsports Park.
