Endurance racing history unfolds this month at the 24 Hours of Le Mans – and you’re invited. To celebrate Ford Motor Company’s return assault on the French classic with its quartet of Multimatic-built Ford GT LMGTE Pro racers, a special event is being hosted by Mini Grid, Toronto’s motorsport-enthusiast retailer.
On June 18th and 19th, Toronto’s historic Regent Theatre (551 Mt. Pleasant Rd.) will resonate to the thunder of a live feed of the wickedly fast and brutally punishing race from the Circuit de la Sarthe. This exclusive gathering – limited to just 500 race-crazed participants – will also feature live team-insider and driver interviews, racecar displays, Forza 6 Motorsport simulators, as well as giveaways and prizes from the likes of Ford Performance, Michelin, Pfaff Motorsports, Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, Forza Motorsports, Sparco and Multimatic itself. French-themed catered food as well as wine and beer will also be available for purchase, in case all the excitement and conversation with like-minded race fans make you hungry and thirsty. The theatre snack bar will also remain open during the event.
The event runs from 7:30am through midnight on Saturday the 18th and then from 6am to 10am on Sunday the 19th.
Tickets are $20 a piece, available from June 1st, exclusively at Mini Grid (608 Mt. Pleasant Rd., Toronto) or online at www.minigrid.com.
