The DAC Trillium Trophy Races is the second VARAC points race of the year and is the final tune-up to VARAC’s much anticipated Canadian Historic Grand Prix taking place on June 14-16 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, celebrating the Rothmans Porsche 944 Challenge Cup as the feature.
VARAC is the Vintage Automobile Racing Association of Canada whose members share a desire to preserve, restore and race historically significant cars in a form as close to the original specification as possible. We race cars made in 1989 or earlier in Ontario and Quebec. The highlight of our season is the Canadian Historic Grand Prix held in 2013 on Jun 14-16 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.
