Something special is bound to happen anytime a group of high-horsepower exotic cars get together, especially if they meet face-to-face and prepare to battle on an open stretch of runway! That's exactly what happens at the annual Race the Base Challenge, as this charity fundraising event continues to grow and raise awareness for the Canadian Forces and funds for a few good causes.
Race the Base offers car enthusiasts and spectators a rare chance to witness some of the world's fastest supercars in head-to-head action. Lucky attendees are able to get up close and personal with a number of their favourite exotics, while drivers get to duel it out in a number individual events to earn points in their respective classes.
This year's event featured a dream car roster including a Ferrari 458 Italia, Saleen S7, McLaren MP4-12C, Corvette ZR1, Ferrari F40, Hennessey Viper Venom, Ford GT, plus every Lamborghini you could think of!
The simple formula is exciting to watch and a hit among fans. Each car gets to strut their stuff by competing in a side-by-side standing mile, wet drift competition, time attack road course and an ultimate top speed event (followed by an optional yet obligatory tire smokin' donut contest!)
