Does the screech of wheels and revving of engines get your blood moving? Then plan a trip to Osoyoos this September for the Wine Country Drag Races. Held by the Wine Country Racing Association, this event takes place at the Osoyoos Airport, only a few kilometres from the luxurious Walnut Beach Resort.
The Wine Country Drag Races feature a host of experienced and novice drivers who get behind the wheel for the chance to win one of the area's most honoured competitions. The track spans one-eighth of a mile and cars ride side-by-side in this exhilarating race. Bring a lawn chair and pack a picnic for this one – the outdoors event has a laid-back vibe and lets you relax in the natural, cactus-adorned habitat surrounding the airport.
Are you looking to transform this event into the Ultimate Okanagan experience? Then book one of the carefully-crafted designer suites at the Walnut Beach Resort. It offers spectacular views and exciting lakeside adventures for your family vacation or adults-only getaway. If you can't make it out this September, plan your trip for October when the Wine Country Racing Association holds the season wrap-up.
