Ladies and Gentlemen…

…Start Your Engines!

Pilar’s Catering staffers were burning rubber over the course of four days at the end of September, fueling our guests attending the Mercedes-AMG Driving Academy at Mosport, with fresh fruit, hot breakfast sandwiches and hand cut home fries before they hit the track.


Drivers returned for southern honey-baked corn bread and warm county cheddar and chive biscuits, southwest pasta salad, greek salad, teriyaki chicken breast, fire grilled bacon wrapped sirloin steaks, Asian glazed citrus grilled salmon with sea salt and olive oil rubbed baked potato, just to name a few items on the four day menu.


Guests got to experience the thrill of driving Mercedes-Benz vehicles under the guidance of some of the most respected driving instructors in the industry, immersing themselves in the world of AMG and high performance driving. Mosport and Mercedes-AMG hosted the event, and chose Pilar’s Catering to make sure that they were treated to gourmet food throughout the event.



While driving the historic racing track, the guests would hear the professional crew’s voice in their headset, providing them with guidance on how to safely navigate the course, and adding to the excitement and adrenaline rush. Mosport has hosted such racing legends as Richard Petty, Bruce McLaren, and Mario Andretti, to name only a few, and boasts a rich history spanning over fifty years. With the spirit of past racing champions in the air, every driver can’t help but feel the energy.

Cars of every type, including Formula One, Indy cars, and stock cars, and vehicles such as superbikes, karts, snowmobiles and even off-road machines have driven at Mosport, making it one of the most unique racing venues in the world. Add in a number of amazing rock concerts and exciting air shows, and it’s hard not to be drawn to the location.




The sheer thrill of the event never subsided, even after each driver had exited their vehicle. Conversation was filled with both awe and excitement as they all chatted and enjoyed the gourmet meals provided.

Mercedes-AMG and Mosport hosted an amazing event for their guests, and one that every driver will be talking about for a long time. I don’t know of any child who hasn’t said, “I want to be a race car driver!” and the teams at Mercedes-AMG and Mosport have made this a dream come true.

We are proud to have been able to provide our services for such a memorable event, and happy to have been able to help bring this event to a first-place finish!
