Jim Martyn: The Voice of CTMP. Gone But Not Forgotten.

Canadian Tire Motorsport Park is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of our long-time friend Jim Martyn. A fixture at our track as announcer, Jim was well known throughout the motorsport community as a talented broadcaster with a kind and warm personality and a friendly smile that lit up media centres at racetracks everywhere.

Jim started broadcasting at then Mosport, in May of 1987. Track owner Harvey Hudes gave him the job announcing races leading him on a career journey covering motorsports, eventually working with Radio Le Mans among others, but always a mainstay as our track announcer.

Our deepest condolences go out to the Martyn family, as well as our gratitude for sharing Jim with all of us for so many years. Jim loved our sport greatly, but also (as so many of us do) held this track especially close to his heart.

Thank you Jim for all the hard work, passion, and care you poured into this place, you will be greatly missed.
