Canadian Motorsports Expo to continue as a major component of the Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo

CME show floor

For the first eight years of its existence, the Canadian Motorsports Expo (CME) was a standalone, racing-only show catering to motorsports fans and the industry. The CME usually took place in early February, when Canadian winters can make it challenging for even the most hearty racers, exhibitors and enthusiasts to participate.

For 2015, the CME will once again take place at Toronto’s International Centre, but with several exciting changes.

The Canadian Motorsports Expo Powered by Inside Track Motorsport News will return for a ninth year as an intact component of the new Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo. The new show takes place March 13, 14 & 15, 2015 at the newly refurbished International Centre, across from Toronto’s Pearson International Airport.

The 2014 edition of the CME f...

CSC Racing Products Inc. secures first official booth!

CSC Booth at CME 2014 (Medium)

TORONTO, ON • CSC Racing Products Inc. was officially the first company to secure a booth for the inaugural Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo. The show takes place March 13, 14 & 15, 2015 at Toronto’s International Centre.

CSC’s status as Motorama’s first official exhibitor is only fitting, for several reasons. The Newmarket, Ontario-based company was a ‘day one’ supporter of the former Canadian Motorsports Expo (CME). As well, CSC has the capability to fabricate almost anything needed to build and maintain street rods and custom cars.

For their first exhibit at Motorama, CSC Racing Products Inc. co-owners Jennifer and Ralph de Winter will be teaming up with BELL Racing USA.

“It was important for CSC, as an individual company, to be a part of the CME,” said Jennifer de Win...

The 8th annual Canadian Motorsports Expo is a wrap. Thank you to all of the fans, exhbitors, celebrity guests, volunteers and staff who made it a great success!!!

Richard Petty was a huge hit on Sunday, staying well past his allotted time to take care of his beloved fans. There is a reason that he is called The King!

Mike and Angie Skinner were fantastic, entertaining the race fans and taking part in several CME events, including an on-stage Q&A, the Short Track Night of Champions, the Meet the Media session and signing autographs. Thank you Mike and Angie!
