Unfortunately, this marks the third and final year for the event, according to an annoucement on the Fast Riding School website. According to the statement from Michel and Odette Mercier, "It is with equal sadness and celebration that we are announcing that 2012 marks the last year we will be hosting the Max Mercier Safety Fund Track Day Event and Breakfast. We have been humbled by all of the support and contributions that participants and volunteers alike have shown us over the years. We celebrate the success these events have had and are only saddened at not having them to look forward to in the coming years. With that said, we invite you to join us on Aug 10th, 2012 for the final Max Mercier Safety Fund Track Day Event. This will be our "Victory Lap" Event so to speak, celebrating the safety Fund's success. Click Here to register for the Event. In Memory of Max Mercier, Thank You once again for having been with us on this journey."
