Wags and Wheels event set for Oct. 29

Dorchester Star - - Regional -

CAM­BRIDGE — Bay­wa­ter An­i­mal Res­cue, the lead­ing no-kill an­i­mal shel­ter on the Eastern Shore, is bring­ing the in­au­gu­ral Wags and Wheels event to Cam­bridge on Sat­ur­day, Oct. 29.

Wags and Wheels is an au­tocross event, which is a timed com­pe­ti­tion where driv­ers nav­i­gate one at a time through a de­fined ob­sta­cle course. It is a mo­tor­sport that em­pha­sizes safety while com­pet­ing against the clock to demon­strate agility and re­flexes. Car han­dling and driver skill are more im­por­tant than raw horse­power.

The open event will be held at the Cam­bridge Plaza on U.S. Route 50 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. All driv­ers 18 and older, with a valid driver’s li­cense are in­vited to en­ter. Demon­strate driv­ing skills, chal­lenge friends to com­pete against the clock. Reg­is­ters drive their own car, how­ever, hel­mets are re­quired. The host of the event, the Ch­e­sa­peake Re­gion of the Porsche Club of Amer­ica, will pro­vide hel­mets.

“This ma­jor fundraiser for Bay­wa­ter An­i­mal Res­cue is an ex­cit­ing fun-filled event for the en­tire fam­ily,” said Bay­wa­ter An­i­mal Res­cue Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor Mau­reen Scott-Tay­lor. “In ad­di­tion to the thrill of the rac­ing, there will be clas­sic cars on dis­play. Vis­i­tors can also en­joy food and mu­sic all day.”

There is a $40 (tax-de­ductible) do­na­tion to drive your car in the race. The en­try fee to come and watch is only $2 per adult and all chil­dren un­der 12 are free. For more in­for­ma­tion visit, bay­wa­t­eran­i­mal­res­cue.org or call 410-8291518.
