Downtown Tour Set For Delaware Drivers


Delaware Speedway is coming to London.  On Tuesday at 1:00 pm, race cars that you only see on the track durng racing season, will be crusing the streets in celebration of the track’s long-running Great Canadian Race Weekend and sixty-first season of competition.

The cars are not what you would call street legal and actually require a police escort.  They will be heading from the Western Fair Agriplex and circling through the city’s downtown core via York Street and Richmond Street before heading down Oxford Street and returning to the Western Fair.

“Bringing these race vehicles into the city leading up to one of our major events is a celebration of the hard work these drivers and teams put in each and every week,” explained track PR director John Houghton.  “The sight of race cars downtown may catch many Londoners by surprise, many of whom remain unaware of the great competition taking place at Delaware, or even the existence of the track.”

Participating drivers include:

#3 Mark Watson of St. Thomas (Current Late Model Division Points Leader)
#51 Matt Robblee of Dorchester (Current Super Stock Division Points Leader)
#55 Gary Adriaensen (Current Truck Division Points Leader)
#22 Jamie Cox of Dorchester (Late Model)
#21 Matt Pritiko of London (Late Model)
