#10 - Old Sled Sighting: amazing vintage snowmobile parade at The Canadian Power Toboggan Championships (reach - 600)

You can file this one under something you don't see everyday—dozens and dozens of vintage snowmobiles on parade. This week's Old Sled Sighting comes compliments of Beauesjour, Manitoba motorsports dealership Sobetski Enterprises.

Sobetski Enterprises is the presenting sponsor for The Canadian Power Toboggan Championships. 2017 marks the 55th anniversary of the Canadian Power Toboggan Championships. We are pleased to present Sobetski Enterprises' video of this year's amazing vintage parade. Check out these three amazing minutes of the vintage sleds to watch.

Here's a little history of the huge snowmobile event:

“The Canadian Power Toboggan Championships has the world’s fastest and safest 1/2 mile ice oval track. Snowmobiles race at speeds in excess of 170 km/h and up to 18 racers compete at the same time! Over 100 racers come from all over North America to take part at this elite international event. The Canadian Power Toboggan Championships is the longest-running snowmobile race in the world. Racers of all ages and skill levels compete in Stock, Modified, Vintage and Motorcycle classes, from Kitty Kat right through to Pro levels. CPTC is a community-based non-profit organization which has over 200 volunteers who have worked tirelessly to put on the “Greatest Show on Snow” since 1963.”

Sobetski Enterprises is recognized for their exceptional customer and after-sales service, superior technical knowledge, superlative efforts and significant contributions to promote the recreational activity of snowmobiling. And, of course, the presenting sponsor of The Canadian Power Toboggan Championships.
