That’s right all you petrol heads out there, we’re back! The Canadian Automotive Expo returns for it’s 3rd year at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park on September 15th, 2018. We want to send out a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who has supported this show in our first two years by attending, sponsoring and telling your friends how much fun we really have. Keep reading below for more info.

In case you don’t know yet this isn’t your run-of-the-mill show and shine! Get tired of just sitting around after a few laps of a show grounds? We’ve got a 700 acre park at your disposal, live road racing ALL WEEKEND, the cheapest camping in Ontario, woodlands, hiking trails, great biking routes two playgrounds, plenty of beautiful vista views and green filled photo ops. Stay overnight and have yourself an epic cookout with a nice warm fire. You won’t regret spending the day or weekend with us!

For a Good Cause

This year the CAE shifts it’s charitable focus to a little know disease commonly described as Vanishing White Matter, and all proceeds from our 50/50 and raffles will be donated directly to the Vanishing White Matter Families Foundation.

The VWM Families Foundation

VWM “is a very rare neurological condition that destroys myelin, the brain’s white matter. In doing so, it permanently affects transmission of brain signals to the rest of the body. VWM primarily affects children and is untreatable, incurable and terminal. In 2016, the VWM Families Foundation was formed to raise awareness of VWM, to raise money for research and to support families living with VWM within the United States and worldwide.” We truly hope you will make the choice to enter our show and help us in supporting this worthy cause.

Motorama & Pre-Registration

Yes, yes, yes we are proud to say we will be back and representing #CAE2018 at Motorama in the Spring Fever event area. With an amazing reception and plenty of questions last year we blew our 2016 pre-reg figures away by heading to The International Centre to speak with you directly. We definitely want to encourage you to check out Motorama, truly a show of epic proportions by Ontarian standards, and to swing by our booth in the tuner hall to ask any questions or even pre-register for our early-bird discount of $20 ! Registration officially opens at Motorama but you’ll also be able to pre-reg online at that time as well. Hope to see you soon!

Ottawa Bound

Hey friends! Recent news to share, we will be packing up our gear and heading out early in the morning on July 15th to head towards Kanata, Ontario where we will be attending and advertising for the CAE at The Nokia Charity Automotive Show 2017.

Being held for it’s 3rd straight year this show is hosted in the 2000 car space Nokia parking lot at 600 March Road in Kanata. Entry into the show and shine is ONLY FIVE BUCKS (or more if you wish) as a donation to the designated charity Candlelighters Ottawa who work tirelessly to support familes facing childhood cancers.

Sponsorship packages are inexpensive as well so if you’ve got a business you’d like to promote we definitely would encourage you to reach out to their organizers!

With a tagline of essentially “has it got a motor? bring it over!” we are anticipating a great array of different vehicles coming together to support a worthy cause so please do plan to come out!

We hope to meet lots of Ottawa area residents who hopefully would like to come visit us later in the year so we will be prepared with flyers, friendly staff and even registration forms at the ready. Either way, we are excited and proud to affiliate with a show supporting such a great cause.

See you in July folks!

Find us at Motorama!

The Canadian Automotive Expo is proud to announce we will be attending the Spring Fever portion of Motorama this year at the Toronto International Centre on March 10-12!

Staff from the CAE will be located at our own booth space promoting the show, answering any questions and taking pre-registrations. Additionally we will have materials and a representative from the Humane Society of Durham Region at the booth to inform you about everything they do and how you might be able to help!

Motorama is aiming for another successful year and this is the 2nd year the Spring Fever element has taken place. We will be surrounded by Ontario’s most prestigious custom vehicles from the truck and tuner scenes but still accessible to the larger show. There is TONS of stuff to see and experience at Motorama and we definitely encourage you to attend. Representatives from all corners of automotive enthusiasm will be there to chat you up and show off their projects and wares, so don’t miss it!



Spring Fever

Humane Society of Durham Region

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Hello 2017

New year, new show eh. We’re back! And it must be official because we created the Facebook event linked here and invited all of our friends 🙂 We hope you can plan to attend this year, we’ve made a big change to our format to try and still add a great event to the scene without conflicting with other awesome events! The park opens for camping on Friday and all are welcome to stay and camp until Sunday evening if you haven’t got other plans *cough* Cayuga *cough*.

This year we are welcomed back to the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park Grand Prix Circuit for the September 16th and 17th weekend, once again joined by the entertaining BEMC race group who are hosting their final road race outing of the year including a 3-hour endurance race on Saturday evening. They provided plenty of action throughout the day in 2016 much to the enjoyment of our visitors and we definitely expect more of the same this year!

Tuners and trucks will be polished up and on display on Saturday, September 16th as we throw down a gauntlet of top 3 classes and best of trophies to show appreciation for their vision and hard work. Competitors are invited to stay the night and enjoy the classic show and shine the following day held on the same grounds. All are welcome to stay and show alongside the classics for fun.

Once again this year we are putting on the event in part to support the Humane Society of Durham Region through a 50/50 draw and raffle event from which all proceeds are donated directly. We are partnering up even more this year and will be helping to represent the HSDR at car shows and events throughout the year, so stop by and ask what’s new if you see us out there!

Pre-registration will be opening very soon and available online. The fee has been lowered this year, down to $20 to enter the show and shine on top of the $15 gate fee paid to CTMP when you enter the park. You can also catch us at our booth at many shows and meets throughout the year where we will have hard-copy applications on hand and accept cash or Interac email.

We’re looking forward to a lot of shows this year and getting around and seeing all the great people out there in this scene. See you soon eh!
