The Vintage Automobile Racing Association of Canada Heads to Calabogie Motorsports Park this Weekend for an epic East meets West Event

TORONTO, ON (August 21, 2013) – VARAC Vintage/Historic and Group 70+ cars head to the picturesque Calabogie Motorsports Park this weekend to participate in an action packed weekend of racing as part of the Ted Powell Races, hosted by the Motorsport Club of Ottawa (MCO).  This event will be the fifth race to count towards the VARAC Drivers’ Championship and the entries are overflowing from Quebec and Ontario.  One of the benefits of Calabogie Motorsports Park being located just outside of Ottawa is that this weekend is a “not-to-be-missed” event for both Quebec and Ontario competitors of each regions’ provincial championships, delivering to fans an unprecedented array of racecars.  The Ted Powell Races prove to be the most attended regional event by VARAC competitors this year.
