Absent for the past 15 years, the Kawartha Cup recently returned to Morrow Park in the heart of Peterbourough, Ontario. Back in the 1960s and 1970s, ice oval racing was a huge attraction at Morrow Park, but since that time snowmobile racing hasn’t been held at the park located within the city limits. Ken Avann, race director for the Canadian Snowcross Racing Association (CSRA), hopes the famous event can be held in its traditional location every year.
Since the hayday of ice ovals, the premier form of snowmobile racing has evolved from ice ovals to that of snowcross. The Canadian Snowcross Racing Association (CSRA) hosted more than 600 entries at this yearâ€™s event at Morrow Park with more than $20,000 in cash and prizes offered.
