Fly Your Car in Gander

Fly Your Car in Gander” sponsored by Action Car & Truck Accessories is an annual charitable racing event that has raised over $22,000 for healthcare programs and services in our region. 

Participants have the opportunity to race their street car on a professional Slalom X track in anticipation of being the “Ace” driver and walking away with a 1st, 2nd or 3rd place prize which includes bragging rights. Entrance Fee for this event will be $50 (minimum) and will include a Fly Your Car in Gander participant T-shirt.  Pledge sheets are also available to assist participants in obtaining pledges.  All proceeds from this event will support healthcare projects of the Central Northeast Health Foundation for patients living in this region. 

Fly Your Car In Gander X was initially planned to take place on Saturday June 12th at the Gander Community Centre parking lot, but due to Covid Alert Levels had to be rescheduled. Event took place on August 13, 2021, at Gander Flight Training Runway, and spectators were allowed (Covid guidelines were followed, contact tracing form filled out by every attendee).

This event was sponsored by Jason Troke and Action Car and Truck Accessories, and we had various poster spot purchases and prize sponsors. As previously mentioned, since 2011 this event has raised over $22,000 + $11,000 from Sno Drag, and this year’s event added another $4007 to the total. Sideways Motorsports recently purchased a new Blanket Warmer for our OBS Department at a cost of $12,000 from the funds raised and will keep new funds in their account for future projects.
