Souris Test and Tune Session, Sept 29, 2013

We had a great turn out today for the PASCAR Test and Tune session at the Souris Track.  We had 6 cars on the track making some noise and kicking up some mud.  We are really looking forward to next spring, when we expect to have everything in place to offer race days open to the public, as well as closed-course practice days for drivers and pit crew.

This fall and winter we will be rallying the Southwest Manitoba community to get behind this effort.  There are many opportunities for individuals, clubs, and organizations in the community to join in this project, be it concessions, ticket taking, track announcers/officials, technical personnel, and so on.

Also needless to say, we encourage everyone who is interested in joining PASCAR as a driver, race team, car owner, or crew, to please get in contact so we can keep you fully in the loop on all developments.
