Star Racer is a reality-genre TV show which originally aired on Discovery Channel Canada in 2006. It has been airing from October 2008 on Discovery’s HD Theater, partly filmed from Circuit Mont-Tremblant. Star Racer chronicles the discovery and episode-by-episode elimination of some of the top amateur drivers in Canada over a period of 8 weeks. Racers participate in weekly racing events on an odyssey to prove themselves as the top talent. Host Yannick Bisson sets the stakes, and is the liaison between the drivers, the judges, and the audience. Eight racers from the world of Kart racing and eight drivers from other racing disciplines vie for the title of “Star Racer” and a career-making prize. The prize is a ride in the Formula Mazda Championship Racing Series where they will test their skills against professional racers.
