Demolition Derby back at I.F. Winter Carnival

The town that lays claim to reviving demolition derbies in the North has one planned for Saturday, March 9th.

Jesse Cybolsky is coordinator of the Iroquois Falls Demolition Derby. The free-for-all between cars until only one is moving is the biggest event of the ten-day-long winter carnival that gets underway the night before with fireworks and a campfire.

The demo derby begins at eleven o’clock Saturday morning at the Calvert Snow Dump, off the south end of d’Iberville Ave.

“We have the drift battle in the morning and then around 1:00 or 1:30, we’ll start the demolition derby, which will be two different classes this year,” says Cybolsky.“We have prizes for $1,000 for first, $500 for second and $250 for third.”

The classes Cybolsky mentions are based on vehicle size.  These ones aren’t modified the way professionals do to their cars by reinforcing the chassis.

“We just do straight stock, where you rip out the upholstery and put a little tank in and put a little off switch and reniforce the door and that’s basically it.”

There are already entries from Kapuskasing, Cochrane and points south.

Here’s the interview with Cybolsky, including more details on the winter carnival and the demolition derby.
