Red Bull Rallycross: a successful event in Ottawa
Ottawa 2017 congratulates all the drivers and crews of this weekend’s Red Bull Global Rallycross event at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum.
While the final count is still being tallied, Ottawa 2017 estimates more than 12,000 enthusiastic spectators took in the event throughout the weekend.
This has been one of the most well-attended inaugural events in the series’ history, and has exceeded all expectations for a first visit to Canada. With such a strong fan response, Ottawa seems to be a perfect fit for future stops on the series schedule.
Our thanks to all those who joined us for this Ottawa 2017 Signature Event, as well as to the over 60 volunteers who contributed their time and talent to making the event a success.
Ottawa 2017 is extremely pleased with the outcome of both Red Bull Global Rallycross and Red Bull Crashed Ice, held in March, in terms of attendance, tourism impact, external market broadcasts and potential for future sustainability. We thank our partners at Red Bull for their contribution in making Canada’s 150th anniversary a memorable one for both residents and visitors.
