Central Ontario’s most anticipated motorsports experience gets closer every day. The 2019 running of the Autumn Colours Classic – presented by Lucas Oil Products and Pure Country 105 – at Peterborough Speedway is about a month away from a green flag and the promotional team is working day and night to make sure everything is ready for the Thanksgiving Weekend spectacular. Track owner and promoter J.P. Josiasse says its all about creating a memorable experience for the fans.
“There are people who’ve had this event on their annual racing calendar since its inception and we have to do everything we can to keep them coming back,” Josiasse said. “We had an incredible regular season, with the track championships in almost every weekly division coming right down to the wire. That’s the same type of excitement we’re hoping to bring to this year’s action at Autumn Colours.”
Things get rolling Friday, October 11th with pre-event technical inspection and practice; along the with the first round of qualifying as well as the Mini Stock and Super Stock Young Guns Races, presented by APC Auto Parts. After making their popular Peterborough Speedway debut midway through the schedule, the OSCAAR Hot Rods have been added to the line-up and will be on the track throughout the weekend, including a 40 lap feature event during Sunday’s finale at the tight, tricky bullring on Mount Pleasant Road.
“We had a good vibe when the Hot Rods brought along some strong numbers in the pits for their inaugural visit and put on a great show when they were here for our Summer Toonie Night in July,” Josiasse added. “They were really popular with our fan base and they’ll be a great addition to the roster that also includes their racing cousins in the OSCAAR Pro Sprint and Modified divisions.”
Bullring bullet points: Plans are currently underway for the 27th annual running of the Autumn Colours Classic – presented by Lucas Oil Products and Pure Country 105 – at Peterborough Speedway. The track will hold an open practice session – Sunday, September 15th – from 11:00 ‘til 4:00, while the 3-day racing extravaganza – with close to 10 different classes in competition – takes the green flag October 11th, 12th and 13th at the venue known as Canada’s Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval.
