TORONTO, ON (July 16, 2015) – The Vintage Automobile Racing Association of Canada (VARAC) is excited to be returning to Shannonville Motorsport Park after a one-year hiatus from this venue.
“It looks to be a solid entry of our Vintage Historic race cars this weekend”, said Diane Dale, VARAC’s Director of Communications. “We expect to see a number of MGs, Historic Formula Cars, a couple of Mallocks and some Porsche and BMW to throw into the mix. Last year there was no race on our schedule at Shannonville Motorsport Park so we’re looking forward to returning to this great track. It really suits our Vintage/Historic cars and we always have a lot of fun.”
Much excitement has surrounded this year’s event, named as the “Bay of Quinte Grand Prix”. The local establishments and community have really helped promote the event and a lot is planned for the fans as well as the competitors.
In addition to the VARAC Vintage Historic racecars, there are six additional race groups competing at the event this weekend. Ground Pounding GT cars, Formula Libre, Toyo Tires F1600 Championship Series, F2000 Canada Series, F1200 Series and Radical Canada will all be in attendance. Food Trucks, Vendors and even a car show on the Sunday will provide additional entertainment.
During the week leading up to the race a number of promotions will take place in the surrounding areas including racecar appearances, radio ads, TV interviews and more. Saturday night, the Lone Star Texas Grill in Belleville will host a Driver’s Party and will feature driver’s interviews, some ticket giveaways and the two event pace cars.
