About this event
40th YEAR! VARAC Vintage Grand Prix
Please plan to join us for the 40th running of the VARAC Vintage Grand Prix being held June 13-16, 2019 on the Mosport Grand Prix track at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.
Classes include Vintage (pre 1962), Historic (pre 1973), Classic (pre 1999), and Formula Classic (monoposto race cars). In addition, once again we will have the Toyo Tires F1600 Championship as our guests.
Thursday, June 13 is a Test Day open to competitors looking to gain experience on this world class circuit. Please note that drivers that have not run on the Mosport Grand Prix track previously must attend the Test Day, or receive a waiver from the Race Director.
NEW FOR 2019 - we are limiting run groups for practice and qualifying sessions to 40 entries. This may require us to institute wait lists for some of our groups. Please register early so we can adjust the groups to allow as many entries as possible to run.
NEW FOR 2019 - all entrants, other than than our Toyo Tire F1600 Championship guests, MUST be a member in good standing of a Vintage Motorsports Council club. Non-vintage club racers will not be permitted to enter this event without the approval of the Race Director.
NEW FOR 2019 - with the intent of reducing speed differentials and therefore safety, we are grouping our Vintage-Historic entries based on LAP TIMES, not engine displacement. When registering please select the run group with the appropriate lap times. If you don't know what your lap time is likely to be, please look at the list of entrants and place yourself with comparable cars. You will be able to change run groups following Friday's sessions (Practice in the morning and Qualifying in the afternoon) and again after Saturday's races if you want to. More details to follow...
Off track we have the Steam Whistle Paddock Tour Friday evening, followed by "Kim & Company", a 12 piece live band that has been entertaining us for the last couple of years. The paddock tour involves 3 stops in the paddock : the first is for chicken wings (and beer); the second is for submarine sandwiches (and beer) and the third for desserts (or another beer if you are so inclined). Sponsored by Steam Whistle Brewing (http://steamwhistle.ca/). The paddock tour and band are included for a driver and one guest with your entry fee.
Saturday evening we have a dinner/reception in the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park Conference Centre (cash bar).
Off track on Sunday, Fathers' Day, is the ever popular Field of Dreams Car Show and parade laps.
As always, free weekend camping courtesy of Canadian Tire Motorsport Park
