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...

TORONTO, ON – While much about the inaugural Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo will be all-new, there are several aspects of the show that will be very familiar to custom car and racing enthusiasts.

And for many of those years, Gary Challice (right) played a leading role in putting together the Performance World Custom Car Show at the International Centre. Challice, who hails from Oshawa (ON), is spearheading the custom car and hot rod components of Motorama...

CME_2013_PaoloPedicelli_3348_sm

TORONTO, ON – This weekend (February 7-9), in Hall 5 of Toronto’s International Centre, both the Canadian Touring Car Championship presented by Continental Tire and the Canadian Motorsports Expo will celebrate their eighth anniversaries.
So it comes as no surprise that the Canadian Touring Car Championship (CTCC) would return to the CME again this year.

“For us, the Canadian Motorsports Expo is the best way to reach out to our fans,” comments CTCC Founder and President John Bondar. “And it’s the best time to launch the season, before everyone gets too involved with the actual racing.”

In 2013, the Canadian Touring Car Championship and its 50-plus, point-scoring drivers competed in front of nearly 600,000 interested spectators, crisscrossing Southern Ontario and Quebec and testi...
