2012 Race the Base Special Entertainment Features
An exciting aspect of this unique event is the demonstration and comparison of state-of-the-art automotive performance vs. the state-of-the-art CF-188 Hornet fighter jet. Specifics (TBD).
You can also expect the following ;
- Canadian Forces Mechanized Equipment Display - armoured vehicles including tanks, will demonstrate their abilities at select periods throughout the day.
- Canadian Forces Displays - various hi-tech weapons and equipment will be on display for public and VIP viewing. Canadian Forces (CF) personnel will also be available to meet with members of the public and VIPs to speak about their experiences in the CF.
- Family Fun Zone - an area where families can have fun throughout the day - these may include pedal car races, crafts, photo opportunities, bouncy houses, etc.
- Concession and Display area - various vendors will have their wares on display: food/beverages will also be available for spectators.
- Big Screens and Audio coverage - expanded live and taped footage at strategic locations will allow spectators to catch the action continuously through-out the day even if they choose to stay in one location.
- Much improved competitor/spectator interaction opportunities - with multiple events happening through-out the day, spectators will be able to interact with competitors waiting in staging areas for the various events and challenges. The lower speed drifting and donut challenges, as well as the medium speed dual road course event layout will allow spectators a much closer view and a much richer acoustical experience with respect to the competitor cars.
