The Slingshot Racing Cup is set to resume competition on Thursday, August 16th, at Gimli Motorsport Park with “The Dream Factory Grand Prix” presented by S.A.R. in Steinbach.

This unique event in the Slingshot Racing Cup season will raise funds and awareness for The Dream Factory, a Manitoba based charitable organization dedicated to fulfilling dreams for kids who are battling life-threatening illnesses. In addition, The Dream Factory will be bringing some Dream Kids and their families out to enjoy the festivities including a ride around the race track in a Polaris Slingshot and a Porsche driven by professional race car driver David Richert.

The Slingshot Racing Cup, organized by S.A.R. Sport & Recreation in Steinbach and Richert Racing, is the only racing championship in the world to feature Polaris’ unique 3-wheeled roadster called the Slingshot. Sponsored by Rainbow Trailers and AMSOIL, the championship features drivers making their introduction to the world of wheel-to-wheel racing.

“Everyone here at The Dream Factory is excited to be part of this unique event on Thursday,” said Andrew Kussy (Development Manager, The Dream Factory). “Our Dream Kids are really looking forward to some rides in fast vehicles and we are thrilled with the funds already raised towards the event as they will go a long way towards helping kids to live their dreams.”

Anyone who commits to pledge a donation of $25 or more to The Dream Factory will have their name entered in a draw to receive a ride with Richert in their choice of a Slingshot or Porsche. Visit for more information.

“This community has been extremely supportive with helping me as I’ve chased my dreams, so it’s a privilege to play a small part in helping to ensure that some families will receive a dream-like day to help add a little bit of colour to challenging situations,” said David Richert. “A huge thanks to Porsche Centre Winnipeg, Lakeview Hotels, Prairie Helicopters, Polaris Canada and Smitty’s (Pembina/Grant) for making this special event happen!”

The action at Gimli Motorsport Park will commence this Thursday at 10am with Practice/Qualifying and Race action beginning shortly after lunch.
