“A one trick pony with Nazi like security”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

I have been visiting Mosport my entire life and I'm now fifty. I will compliment them on the improvements to the big road course. Nice work. This facility advertises their great diversity in racing and at one point was looking at putting in a drag strip to compliment the road course and oval. Most recently they reduced their race offering to the world to road course only by removing the oval even thought they are the sponsor of Canada's premier stock car division. We were all excited with the new owners that are well funded to really make this place one of the best racing facilities in North America but unfortunately they took a step backwards. When you get there, you will need to sit quietly and behave like school children. Anyone that thinks the good old days of Mosport are still happening there will be very disappointed at the draconian security that roams the property like hungry wolves. Not recommended.

“Super track to drive on”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

I have been driving the big track for over 15 years and the changes during the past two years have been superb. Not only is the track in much better condition, the new tower building, pedestrian bridges over the track as well as parking areas have greatly improved the facility/ Keep it up!

“Wow, this place has really improved! Good work, Canadian Tire!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

We've gone to Mosport many times over many years, and this place was a real dump. The washrooms were disgusting, as was the food services. I got food poisoning many years ago from one concession. But, we attended on Saturday of the Victoria Day races, and were surprised to see many major improvements to everything: P.A. system, food services, washrooms, track safety, staff friendliness, ticket buying, prices. Free access to pits was nice extra. We had to pay for a two day ticket, but got most of the price back when we left because we couldn't come back on Sunday. There was one on track delay because someone pooched their motor, leaving oil all over, but by and large, the races went on time. If you love car racing, I urge you to support this facility that has been upgraded and improved in every way by Canadian Tire. Try the Vintage Cars coming up in June. Kudos to Canadian Tire and Ron Fellows, the two main owners.

“Fun Day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Came out to Mosport to do some photography work for the Kart races. The new owners have certainly been busy upgrading the tracks. It is always a fun day out in the pits.

“Nascar at Mosport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

It was great to see Mosport on its way back to the world racing stage. The Nascar Truck race was excellent with many upgrades to the park and track. We sat between turn 2 and 3 and Fox had a jumbo tron set up across from us where you could view the entire race.
