The sports and performance cars will take to Canadian Tire Motorsport Park’s 2.88 km Driver Development Track and the large skid pad as well as five days on the public roads surrounding the venue, while the crossovers, utility vehicles and pickup’s will utilize the off-road trails on the 900+ acre property for their testing components.
“We are proud to welcome an automotive testing event of this importance and scale,” said Myles Brandt, President and General Manager at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. “The facility, with multiple race tracks, skid pads as well as the off-road course will provide AJAC with everything they require to run the vehicles through the various tests. Many consumers base their choice of vehicle on these results so we couldn’t be happier to play a part in that.”
“We are all car people at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, and are thrilled that our facility will play host to the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada and their “TestFest” event, to determine the 2016 Canadian Car of the Year awards,” added Ron Fellows, co-owner at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. “It’s yet another prestigious event to add to our 2015 calendar.”
The CCOTY program, which is open to new-this-year models, sees the highest-scoring vehicle in each testing category declared a winner, before all category winners re-compete for the overall title of Canadian Car of the Year, Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year and new to the program Canadian Green Car of the Year. A field of dozens of vehicles is narrowed down to a handful of top-scoring finalists, and then just two overall winners.
“The Automobile Journalists Association of Canada’s (AJAC) Canadian Car of the Year (CCOTY) awards committee is excited to bring their annual “TestFest” event - where new model vehicles are evaluated each October by the country's top automotive journalists - to Canadian Tire Motorsport Park,” said Gary Grant, Co-chair, Canadian Car of the Year Awards.
