VARAC 2013 Race Season Gets Underway This Weekend

TORONTO, ON (April 29, 2012) – The snow has melted and the grass is finally getting green so it’s time for the competitors from the Vintage Automobile Racing Association (VARAC) to hit the track for their first race of the season.

Cars from the Vintage/Historic and Group 70+ classes will be participating in the BEMC 63rd Annual Spring Trophy Races this Saturday May 4th and Sunday May 5th at the newly refurbished Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

2013 VARAC Race Season Starts This Weekend

During the off-season the addition of a VARAC Festival Championship in concert with vintage clubs in the U.S. was formulated to compliment the already popular VARAC Regional Championship which is run as an integral part of the CASC Ontario Region schedule.

It was also announced a short time ago that Shellbourne Fuels has come on board as the VARAC Driver’s Championship Primary Sponsor, providing the club with some necessary resources and the competitor base with a fully customizable fuel program.

“This is going to be a great season of racing,” said VARAC President Del Bruce. “We have been working diligently over the winter to continue to grow the sport of vintage car racing.  Our new sponsorships and our evolving relationship with some key vintage groups in the US are really enhancing the vintage racing experience for our members,” he added.

The highlight of the season is always the Canadian Historic Grand Prix, this year taking place June 14-16 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. The event will continue to celebrate the history of Canadian motorsport as this years featured class will be the Rothmans Cup Porsche 944’s that provided some of the closest racing ever seen and launched the professional careers of many home-grown stars.
