Equinics 2016 – Lighting Of The Torch Ceremony

Rich in history and tradition, the Sim Community will rejoice in the ninth celebration of Equinics, kicking it off of the Torch Lighting ceremonies for the 2016 SIM Equinics. Twenty privileged residencies will compete in the true spirit of sportsmanship while honoring the memory of those who have passed on or a past event.

Anxious anticipation resonates throughout stable and barn areas of the twenty participating residencies as a feeling of camaraderie and competition spreads throughout the SIM community.

The Equinic flame represents harmony and goodwill, a common bond shared by all, a flame that will burn brightly forever. Its’ message to teach people fair play and build a high regard for cooperation and togetherness.

The Equinics torch that carries the Equinics flame on its 95-day tour from Vermont to Brazil is passed on from one torchbearer to another until all twenty of the participating residencies have carried the lighted torch, a flame that illuminates a special memory throughout the Sim Community.

The Olympic flame ends its journey by lighting the Olympic Cauldron of the Games. Finishing the final leg of the Equinics Torch Relay and gracing us with the honor of lighting this year’s Cauldron is one of the longest standing members of the Sim Community, one of its’ most respected members, and one of the original founders of the SIM racing tabloid, and someone who certainly embraces the message of the Equinics, Roys.
