Snowcross racing returns to Lindsay later this month

By Lindsay Advocate

Professional snowcross racers will be thrilling crowds at the Lindsay Exhibition grounds on Jan. 27-28 and again on Feb. 3-4.

Professional Snowcross racers return to Kawartha Lakes between January 27-28, and February 3-4 for two back-to-back weekends of Snowmobile and UTV racing action at the Lindsay Exhibition grounds.

To ensure the events happen as planned, the (CSRA) Canadian Snowcross Racing organization has brought in a snowmaking team with two snow guns to produce extra snow for the annual FXR Kawartha Cup Snowcross Races.

From January 27 through 28, Canada’s best professional snowmobile and UTV racers will be competing for the prestigious FXR Kawartha Cup. Meanwhile, from February 3 through 4, hundreds of young kids and teens will get their chance to race on the professional snow racetrack. UTV side-by-side racers will have their chance to tear up the track both race weekends on Saturdays after the sled racing is complete.

Snowcross racing is a family sport. There are 18 racing classes of competition starting with a kid’s division for 4 to 10-year-old racing on miniature snowmobiles, classes for novice kids, junior boys and girls, trail sport classes for first time racers, sport and professional classes. Kids and amateur racing start at 9:00 a.m. on both Saturday and Sunday.

The Lindsay Exhibition facility features a heated 40,000 square foot building for food and beverage kiosks, as well as vendor displays. Parking is free.

Spectator admission tickets are available at the Lindsay Exhibition gates on race days, while advance tickets are available online at
