Secaucus, NJ — Since the first race held at the Goshen Historic Track in 1838, chances are, it has never seen this much horsepower in one day. A world premier event featuring exotic cars, exotic chariot races, and family oriented activities will take place on June 7.

The event is jointly hosted by the World Chariot Racing Association (WCRA), Celebrity Farms, RCDolner, the Harness Racing Museum, and the Goshen Historic Track, with wide participation and support from leading harness racing tracks, owners, leaders, trainers, drivers, and others.

At the June 7 event, the theme is racing for awareness and raising money for a cure. Proceeds from the event will support the Goshen Historic Track and the Harness Racing Museum as well as the following charities:

The Children of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund, a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization founded in October 2003 as a means of providing college grants and financial assistance to surviving children and spouses of our US Military Service members who have lost their lives in the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars. Visit for more info.

The University of Michigan Linda Dolce Scleroderma Research Fund, an organization dedicated to finding a cure for Scleroderma. This disease is the most fatal of the rheumatic diseases. It causes life-threatening damage to internal organs and progressive tightening of the skin. Scleroderma affects 2.5 million victims worldwide and has no cure. Visit for more info.

The Chris Vasiliou Memorial Foundation, established to serve the higher purpose of raising awareness and finding a cure for Vasculitis. Chris Vasiliou, only 14 years young, lost his battle to Vasculitis after weeks of valiant struggling. Chris was a young, strong, vibrant, innocent and loving child. Visit for more info.

The opening festivities of Grand Circuit month and the launch of the World Chariot Racing Association will start at Noon on June 7, rain date June 14, at Goshen Historic Track and the Harness Museum. Attendees will be among the first in the world to view prototypes of Celebrity Farms’ exotic exhibition chariots in action in exhibition races during the event. The chariots will also be available for a sneak preview at Goshen Historic Track on Youth Day, June 6, when harness racing competitions will be held between local high school students for a chance to win scholarship money.

Those who visit the Harness Racing Museum neighboring the track on June 7 and contribute to the supported charities will receive a gift bag filled with exotic car paraphernalia and will be entered to win a ride with a professional racer in the debut exotic chariot exhibition races. Commemorative trophies will be awarded to race winners. All donors will also be eligible to win other prizes including a miniature model of the Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa that recently sold for $12.4 million in Maranello, Italy.

RCDolner’s first annual Exotic Car Tour will be traveling from the Suburban Golf Club in Union, N.J. to the Thayer Hotel in West Point, N.Y. and in its final stretch will arrive in Goshen, N.Y. at 4:00 p.m. to showcase exotic cars at Goshen Historic Track. The tour will be comprised of dozens of exotics including Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Porsches; visit and follow the event link to view a full list and pictures of participating cars.
