Race Day Sponsor

We are pleased to have Mechanical Edge Automotive Inc. as our race day sponsor.  Since 2015 they have worked hard to build a loyal customer base and be a preferred choice for those in need of automotive service for their vehicles in Burlington and the surrounding area.  The secret to their success is providing up front clear quotations that explain the work that needs to be done, and following through with quality work, at competitive pricing.  They work on all makes and models of vehicles and provide service for many fleet accounts. 

Their 5 bay full service repair shop complete with all the necessary equipment to perform general automotive work including alignments is located on Plains Road East between Guelph Line & Brant Street.  Russel Brookes and his team of 5 dedicated mechanics are available from 8:00am to 5:30pm Monday through Friday.  For more information or to book an appointment their phone number is 905-634-0040, or you can send an email to [email protected].
