About this event
Welcome to the 42nd YEAR of the VARAC Vintage Grand Prix!
Please plan to join us for the 42nd running of the VARAC Vintage Grand Prix being held June 16 - 19, 2022 on the Mosport Grand Prix track at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.
As we plan this event the restrictions and regulations that may face us due to the COVID-19 pandemic are not known. We are planning that travel restrictions will be minimum and people will be comfortable coming and participating in our event. We will of course follow all protocols and restrictions in place at the time of the event and we will undertake to provide regular correspondence with all volunteers and interested persons so you may make your own decision regarding your attendance and safety.
Classes for our event include Vintage (pre 1962), Historic (pre 1973), Classic (pre 1999), Formula Classic (open wheel/ Monoposto race cars built up to 1999) and the Formula Ford Challenge Series. In addition, the Toyo Tires F1600 Championship Series will be joining us. There should be something for everyone - classic sedans, vintage sports cars, and a wide assortment of formula cars. It promises to be a great weekend of vintage racing.
Our feature marque will be MG! As such we send out a special invitation to all MG racers and welcome MG cars of all types - PreWar, T series. A’s B’s C’s, GT’s, V8’s –“bring em” all. We welcome MG Vintage Racers who have designated this event as a Focus Event. There will be a special “all-MG” Race. Also the VVGP weekend will kickoff a fantastic five day gathering/meet for MG enthusiasts - MG 2022 - in Peterborough (June 19-23) (https://mgtoronto.com/mg2022/)
We also welcome the Formula Ford Challenge Series (FFCS) as a run group at this event. FFCS is an Eastern US & Canadian series for Formula Fords running under vintage race rules.
We will be running some Special Races, as follows:
- The “all MG” race as mentioned, and
- The Nation's Cup, pitting the home base of our feature marque (MG) ie the UK (the "Brits") up against "the Rest of the World" (RoW). This will involve the Brits on one side of the grid vs an opponent from the RoW on the other side- You race your opponent.(Triumph racers-this is your chance to race with MG’s, but you’re on the same team in this one!) Each pair will score a point per win and the winning side will all be on the podium! More details will follow with event Supp Regs. Open to VH cars and Classic cars > 2500 lbs. Note we may have to do some sorting at the event
- an Open Wheel Challenge - basically an “all comers” race for open wheel cars.
Off track on Friday evening is the Johnny Greenwood Banquet in the CTMP Conference Centre (cash bar), followed by live rock and roll by VARAC's very own house band, Fun Comes Fast.
Off track on Saturday evening we have the CPS Paddock Crawl. The paddock Crawl involves 3 stations in the paddock; one for wings & ribs (and beer), another for submarine sandwiches (and beer) and the last stop Mudmen band at the top of the hill (or another beer if you are so inclined).
