Track Release/Photo by McCarthy Photographic
(Halifax, NS – June 13, 2018) Kids get to take the front seat at Scotia Speedworld this Friday for Kiddie Rides Night presented by Sell Off Vacations! Gather up the kids and take in one of Scotia Speedworld’s most popular events – Kiddie Rides, where kids get the unique opportunity to go for a ride in a racecar with their favourite driver! Kiddie Rides get underway at 7:00 pm sharp so be sure to get there early. Grandstand gates open at 5:00 PM.
The format for Kiddie Rides is simple and safe. Drivers bring their cars to the front stretch and park. Once all engines are stopped, the grandstand gate is opened and children come onto the track and climb into their favorite car. When all children are safely in the cars the drivers are led around the track at a safe speed by the pace car. After a few laps, the cars are stopped; the children climb out and proceed back to their seats in the grandstand to enjoy the rest of the night’s events.
Following Kiddie Rides fans will enjoy great racing action from four CARSTAR Weekly Racing Series divisions. First up are the Hydraulics Plus Bandoleros, also heating up the track will be the Toursec Thunder & Lightning cars and Strictly Hydraulics Legends.
Joining track announcer Tim Terry this week as co-host for Kiddie Rides presented by Sell Off Vacations is former CARSTAR Weekly Racing Series Truck competitor Jason Fenton.
Admission is just $15.00 for Adults; Youth (8-15) are $5.00 and children 7 and under are free…all summer long! Tickets are available at the gate on race day (cash only).
