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.

Arrived at the track in time to cover the Thursday afternoon GT and GTS test sessions. Hope you like the photos.
