Mini Indy Moose Jaw Race INFORMATION
1. Set up for the track begins about 8.30 am on Saturday morning June 17th. Attached a map showing the location used at the Town and Country Mall in Moose Jaw.
2. Tech inspections, done by Noel McAvena, will start around 9 am as the course is being set up and once the course is completed and your car is teched…
3. Practice runs can be done by each team to find best drivers and give everyone a chance to feel out the course. We will also determine the fastest lap.
4. Racing starts at noon and will run until 5 -5.50 pm. There will be food trucks available and access to the mall facilities.
As this Electric Vehicle (EV) Challenge is being combined with the “Race for Recovery” charity fundraiser, there will be electric, gas, electric, gas etc… races. Corporate teams that participate in this event all run gas so there won’t be a mixed race unless there is time at the end of the day and teams are willing.
All pit equipment for the races is provided by Swervin so that everyone has the same equipment. Typical races are three teams at a time.
The only tools required will be what you bring to work on your car if needed. There will also be help from Moose Jaw Ford if needed.
Dealership banners and event sponsors will have their banners placed in key spots around the track (attached to the four-foot crowd fence). Dealerships get first pick of locations.
Don’t forget: that the ADVISOR’S GUIDE TO SCORING is required for the tech inspection and final documentation we use for the challenge.
Rules of the racing events will be explained prior to races starting at noon.
As mentioned at the beginning of this challenge to the schools, this is a charity fundraising event as well, car sponsors (other than the FORD dealerships) can make their donations to (Canadian Mental Health Association Saskatchewan) CMHA SK and in the memo section of the cheque, place “OSI-CAN”. They will be given a tax deductible receipt by the charity. Usually the minimum donation is $1000 per car, so do the best you can please. Decal space is worth cash to your cause. Registrations can be done online at
Trophy’s and awards are given out at the end of race day once we tabulate the points. Please remember to return all the unused parts and engines along with the cars after the competition to Swervin Mini Indy. I intend to use all the cars in car shows and displayed around the area to promote and build the challenge for next year. It’s also a great way to promote what your students can do and brag
about your schools. I can also provide the dealerships with these cars for displays if they so desire as long as they
are not being used for Swervin promotions.
There will be live streaming of the event by a Moose Jaw Drone company, radio and TV coverage where interviews of participants, sponsors and event organizers is encouraged.
