The countdown is on for the 2013 World Driving Championship in France. With just over two weeks until his departure, the excitement is building for Canada’s rep, Trevor Henry.

This Friday, May 24, Henry will be presented with his official Canadian driving colours before the races at The Raceway at Western Fair in London, Ont.

From 6:00 p.m to 6:40 p.m., there will be a meet and greet session with racing fans in the track’s main lobby. Trevor will be available for photos and will autograph special photo postcards compliments of Standardbred Canada’s I Love Canadian Harness Racing Fan Club.

Fans are encouraged to wear red and white to show support for Canada’s rep and to participate in prize draws.

As part of the trackside presentation, London's own Karen Schuessler Singers will sing the national anthem.

Henry, 42, of Arthur, Ontario drove 533 winners during the 2012 season to top the charts for all Canadian drivers, while adding $3.4 million in purse money to his stats. Both numbers were career bests for the talented reinsman. He also won driving titles at The Raceway at The Western Fair District, Grand River Raceway, Clinton Raceway and Hanover Raceway last year.

Lifetime, he has driven in 25,730 races, accumulated 4,773 wins and driven horses to earnings in excess of $30 million. To date this year he has 175 winners and over $728,000 in earnings.

Henry has nine drives on Friday night’s card which also features the City of London Pacing and Trotting Series eliminations.

Canadians have won the World Driving Championship on four other occasions with Jody Jamieson the most recent winner in the U.S. in the 2011 event. Jamieson also won in 2001. Sylvain Filion won the 1999 edition and Herve Filion won the inaugural WDC in 1970.
