The 2022 edition of Motorama was pushed back six weeks to avoid the lingering restrictions related to the pandemic. One downside of this change was that the show took place the same weekend that several area tracks were hosting their opening nights or pre-season testing sessions, thereby forcing them to miss the show.

But with the Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo presented by eBay Motors back on its traditional ‘start of March Break’ weekend, it feels like old times again in the Inside Track Motorsport News Racing Zone, presented by Stoneridge Specialty Insurance.

Motorama takes place March 10, 11 & 12 at The International Centre, across from Toronto’s Pearson Airport.

For the 2023 edition of Canada’s biggest indoor auto enthusiast and racing show, there are no such conflicts, and the vast majority of Ontario’s tracks and series will be part of Motorama, once again. For almost five decades, the show – run under various banners – has been the official kick-off of the Ontario racing season.

Schedules are distributed to fans planning out their summer racing calendars. Almost 75 racers will have their season-ready race cars and bikes – representing the entire spectrum of Canadian motorsports – on display in the Racers’ Corral. And several equipment and souvenir vendors are in the mix, catering to racers and fans who are thinking about racing, again, after a long winter.

Some series will host their Drivers’ Meetings on the show floor. And throughout the weekend, the Stoneridge Stage will be busy with motorsports media members interviewing guests about their off-season news and plans for the upcoming season.

So far, the following series and tracks will have displays and/or racing vehicles at Motorama: British Auto Racing Club (BARC), Canada Heads-Up Drag Racing Series, Canadian Automobile Sport Clubs – Ontario Region (CASC-OR), Canadian Vintage Modifieds (CVM), Flamboro Speedway, Full Throttle Motor Speedway, Great Lakes Legends Series, Ohsweken Speedway, Ontario Sportsman Series, Peterborough Speedway, Sauble Speedway, Southern Ontario Modifieds Association (SOMA), Sunset Speedway, Toronto Motorsports Park (TMP), and the United Racing Series (APC Pro Late Models, Qwick Wick Super Stocks & OSCAAR Modifieds and Hot Rods).

“The fact that so many tracks and series are part of the show this year is a clear indication that the challenges of the past few years are almost entirely behind us,” said Motorama’s Greg MacPherson. “It was a very tough time for everyone, so it’s gratifying to see that so many in our industry made it through the pandemic and things are firing on all cylinders again. Race fans are eager to put down their ‘screens’ and get out and do something real again. The experience of going to a racetrack is something that can’t be emulated. For a lot of fans and racers, the excitement surrounding the upcoming season starts to build at Motorama when they see the cars and get their hands on racing schedules.”
