The 5th annual Race the Runway kicks off this Saturday morning. Gates open at 8:30am.
This will be the biggest RtR to date!
The weather prevailed and the crowds came in huge numbers to watch 112 cars go for top speed on the Smith Falls airport runway. The event broke records for spectator attendance, competitors and show cars. This year’s new viewing configuration allowed spectators to safely get much closer to the action and provided room for BBQs and tailgating at the launch zone. Top speed this year was set by a returning competitor who topped 277kph in a masterfully built Eagle Talon.
A huge thank you to the over 150 volunteers who make this unique event possible!
See you next year!

Join us for the fourth annual Race the Runway, August 15, 2015!
I would like to congratulate Race the Runway on another very successful event this year. QNX is proud to sponsor this event that supports local charities. This event has particular interest for us since many of these cars are probably running QNX technology. Well done.
