How much track time will I have?
Most of the day is in practical experience, classroom being held to a minimum. Mental and physical demands typically exceed desired driving time.
Can I bring family and friends to watch me?
Yes, we welcome family and friends and will make them feel part of the day. If they will not be travelling with you, please make sure their names have been put on a guest list.
What happens if it rains?
Drag Racing is a sport that relies on a dry racing surface for competition. To remove water on the drag strip, Toronto Motorsports Park uses a combination of machines to dry the track. We will make every effort possible to dry the surface following a rain delay.
If an event is cancelled due to inclement weather, the promoter of the race, i.e. Toronto Motorsports Park, OSCA, NHRA, etc... will make the call regarding rain checks and only at the time of cancellation.
The Road course will run rain or shine for all events, Open Car Lapping, Motorcycle Lapping, F2000 Driving Experience or Exotic Dream Car Experience. If the weather is too dangerous or there is too much rain for the customer to have a great experience with us, Management at that time will make the decision to cancel and the customers will be notified by phone or email. The customer then will have to contact the office to rebook their date.

Racers are welcome to camp in their pit area.
Do you sell firewood for campfires?
Local individuals sell firewood only during some events. The sellers are usually located behind the washrooms. Stop by the tower to find out.
Small campfires are permitted only in the grass areas and we encourage you to contain them with your own fire rings. The top of an old 45 gallon drum, or the hollowed out ring of a car wheel are both suitable options.
Can I bring a family pet?
Pets are welcome! Please ensure they are leashed at all times and remember to clean up after them. We also encourage you to ensure that your pets are in a safe place when race engines are running because their hearing is much more sensitive to loud noises than that of humans.
Do you have restrooms or showers?
Yes. Our restrooms and showers are located in the grey building in front of the concessions.
Washrooms can also be found in the camping area and portable washrooms will be brought in as necessary to accommodate larger crowds.
Can I bring glass containers?
