Audette, F2000 Take Over Toronto
Toronto, ONT – One day before the F2000 Championship Series heads to Mosport for rounds nine and ten of the 2011 season with the American Le Mans Series (ALMS), Championship leader Remy Audette was on hand at a major media and fan event in Toronto’s Yonge-Dundas Square.
Audette, from Quebec, spent the day in Canada’s biggest city to meet fans, sign autographs, conduct interviews, and show off his #21 Audette Racing Van Diemen.
Cars were on display in Yonge-Dundas Square, considered the heart of downtown Toronto, from 9 a.m., with the fan events happening around noon, including an immensely popular autograph session which featured Audette and drivers from ALMS.
Along with Audette’s #21, Corvette Racing’s ALMS GT car was on display, along with the Aston Martin Muscle Milk Prototype, and various other cars from the six different series racing at the 10-turn Canadian road course in Ontario this weekend.
The Canadian, who has won three F2000 races this year, signed hundreds of hero cards, and met with local media, conducting a number of radio and TV interviews on a small media tour for Audette Racing and the F2000 Championship Series.
The F2000 Series had officials on the ground to help promote the Championship, answering questions, working with media, and also giving away boxes of hero cards, stickers and promotional materials.
It was a busy day for Audette, who also drives the team’s tractor/trailer, which arrived in Toronto on Tuesday night, and left in the afternoon to load into the F2000 paddock for an early morning practice session on Thursday, July 21.
