Drive Festival By Mobil 1 Comes To The GTA For 3 Days This Weekend
The world’s greatest cars are coming to the GTA this weekend for 3 days of Drive Festival Presented by Mobil 1, the only Canadian festival that shows dream cars driven at speed.
Drive Festival presented by Mobil 1 is starting its engines for the second year at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park from Friday, September 9th to Sunday, September 11th, 2022. Last year’s event crew crowds of over 10,000 car fanatics who enjoyed a parade of exotic cars driven at top speed on the Canadian Tire race track!
Just minutes outside of Toronto, this three-day automotive event offers attendees a unique and interactive experience with some of the world’s most iconic and sought-after cars across more than 900 acres.
Extremely rare cars will be on display, including the Czinger 21C, Pagani Huayra BC, Ford GT40, McLaren P1 and the classic Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing. For EV lovers, a variety of electric and hybrid vehicles and autonomous technology will be on display at The Ontario Tech University/ACE Innovation Zone. There will also be race cars, vintage vehicles as well as modified and new motorcycles.
The most anticipated feature at the event is the Mobil 1 Dream Car Speed Run where autophiles can see, hear and experience Canada’s largest selection of exotic, classic and iconic cars driven at top speeds all weekend long. In addition, there are three separate test drive tracks for attendees to get behind the wheel on: the PRO-SERIES Manufacturer Test Track, the Continental Tire Performance Test Track and the Off-Road Test Track.
The interactive event has something for everyone with food trucks and a Kids Fun Zone. The family-friendly area features Voltz Toys, including a selection of ride-on electric and bumper cars. Brampton Batman and the world-famous Batmobile will also be on-site along with many additional games and vendors and exhibits.

Mark Clintberg leads a virtual discussion studying the phenomenon of artist-run restaurants—the subject of his Ph.D. thesis and a remaining area of ongoing research in his practice. Clintberg’s selected case studies use food and hospitality as leverage points to highlight commodity exchange, to enact activism, to question or claim forms of identity, and to spark conviviality.
A live recording will be made available on YouTube at a later date.
