Story By: JIM CLARKE / PETERBOROUGH SPEEDWAY – PETERBOROUGH, ONT – Santa Claus is coming to town and his sleigh is filled with holiday gift ideas for fans of Canada’s Toughest 3rd Mile Oval.
The promotional team at Peterborough Speedway has put together ticket packages that will help you put a smile on the face of every race fan on your Christmas list.
Start with a grandstand pass for the 2023 schedule. Catch the full regular season’s events for only $ 220.00. That’s a saving of $ 50.00 off the individual ticket value. A super pass covers every weekly event, plus the annual running of the Autumn Colours Classic for $ 270.00. $ 65.00 less than the raceday price.
Anyone can enjoy the full raceday feel with the Peterborough Speedway driving experience. Individual or group participants can take part in a program that includes classroom and on track sessions with all the safety gear and equipment you’ll need to enjoy the same sensation that comes when the Saturday night green flag flies. All cars are equally prepared, 2200 pound 4-cylinder Mini Stock racecars, with manual or automatic transmission. To learn more, complete the booking form from the ‘driving school’ drop-down menu on the track website, call 705.743.5880 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
