MOSPORT UNVEILS ITS 50TH ANNIVERSARY SEASON LOGO

Mississauga, ON (January 22, 2010) -- Mosport International Raceway unveiled its 50th anniversary season logo today at the opening of the Canadian Motorsport Expo (CME), this country's premier racing show, which is on at the Toronto International Centre until Sunday.

The golden anniversary emblem incorporates the circuit's historic logo, used from the 1960's to the 1990's, when the facility was known as Mosport Park. It sports a maple leaf within the word "Mosport" set over an outline of the track on a checkered flag background, surrounded by a golden ring, laurels and the number 50.

"Our 50th anniversary season obviously will have a strong nostalgic flavour, so it's only fitting that we incorporate the old Mosport Park logo," said Myles Brandt, president and general manager of Mosport International Raceway. "We hope this season-long celebration will bring back many great memories for everyone associated with the track since 1961."

The trip down memory lane starts with this weekend's CME, where the Mosport RaceTour Exhibit will feature the Horst Kroll owned Can-Am car that Paul Tracy drove at Mosport in 1986 to score his first major race win. Both Tracy and Kroll will appear at the CME on Sunday.
