TORONTO, ON (July 23, 2013) – Following their feature Canadian Historic Grand Prix event last month the Vintage Automobile Racing Association of Canada (VARAC) competitors have decided to divert their attention to multiple tracks this weekend. VARAC’s Group 70+ grid will be competing at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park as part of the BARC Canadian Touring Trophy Races (July 27, 28) and the Vintage/Historic grid will attend the Waterford Hills Vintage Races (July 26-28).
“Waterford Hills is such a favoured event on the North American vintage circuit” says Del Bruce, VARAC’s President and Race Director. “When it was announced that the schedule would collide with the CASC-OR’s regional schedule we made the decision to support both events, rather than choose one over the other. Both are important to our members and our commitment to BARC and CASC-OR. We think of it as double-the-fun for our club this weekend.”
This year’s Waterford event will feature the Trans Am B Sedan Challenge Race as well as the VSCDA Vintage Vee Series Points Race. Information regarding this event can be found at www.waterfordhills.com and on their Facebook page.
The Group 70+ cars are looking forward to an exciting re-match of the close competition and crowded grids that were experienced at the CHGP. Information regarding the BARC Canadian Touring Trophy event can be found at:
Provisional Schedule available here.
Complimentary Tickets available here.
Both of this weekend’s events are the fourth VARAC points races of the year. Results and Point Standings are posted here.
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 annually in June at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. The 2014 CHGP will feature the Triumph MG Challenge.
