Press Release –
Marginal snowmaking conditions in the Sarnia, Ontario area have forced the WPSA PowerSports Snowmobile Tour to withdraw from the race it was co-promoting with CSRA at the Hiawatha Horse Track in Sarnia.
CSRA will move forward with their scheduled event for that weekend.
“For some time now we have been concerned that the lack of snowmaking weather and the amount of available snow will prevent us from building the National caliber track that our racers expect,” said PowerSports Entertainment, Inc. Executive Vice President of Operations Kent Lungstrom.
“Our snowmakers we sent there to make snow but we had to pull them because the weather wasn’t available or foreseeable. We then hoped Mother Nature would come to the rescue but the natural snowfall received so far is only enough to build a decent quality regional racing surface and not the larger, deeper track needed for the Pro class riders to compete upon over a whole weekend. We think the CSRA will have a fine weekend on the snow they have and we wish them the best.”
Next stop for the PowerSports Snowmobile Tour will be a double header for the Pro and Semi-Pro racers at Brainerd International Raceway in Brainerd, MN. Snowmakers have been making snow for weeks and this recent cold snap created some great snowmaking conditions.
