Press Release –
On February 2-3, hundreds of the Worlds best snowmobile racers roll into the new Lindsay Central Exhibition grounds to compete at the “Amsoil Kawartha Cup Snowmobile Races”. Racers will compete for the prestigious Kawartha Cup, as well as, thousands of dollars in cash and prizes.
Snowcross racing is very similar to motocross racing. Racers will put on a high-flying aerial display as they compete on a challenging snow race course featuring huge jumps and moguls. During competition Pro racers will often jump their snowmobiles 80-100′ feet through the air as they challenge their competitors for the lead position.
The Kawartha Cup race course will be a compact Super Snowcross design, set up so spectators can view all the action from the huge grandstand at the new Lindsay Central Exhibition grounds. Spectators will also be able to warm up and check out the new vehicle and Powersports displays inside the new Exhibition building.
Snowcross racing is a family sport, the Kawartha Cup races include classes for all ages of both men and women. There is even a racing class for 4-6 year old children on miniature snowmobiles. The “CSRA” Canadian Snowcross Racing will also be providing an opportunity for (10) local kids to try Snowcross racing for the first time with the Ski-doo Freestyle Challenge. Children will be provided with a new snowmobile, safety equipment and professional instruction from the Pro racers.
