2015 – PWC Testing at Mosport (May 15 to 17)

The Pirelli World Challenge (PWC) headed to Ontario Canada to be part of the Victoria Day Speedfest at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (also known as Mosport) during the middle of May. The 10-turn natural terrain track is about 2.5 miles long. This is one of the most beautiful circuits I’ve been to with its elevation changes, variety of turns, and long straight set amongst grass-covered hills and trees. This was my first time to Mosport, and must thank all the photographers and staff who helped me, especially the Canadian phototogs! Arrived at the track in time to cover the Thursday afternoon GT and GTS test sessions. Hope you like the photos.
