About this event



Welcome to the 43rd YEAR of the VARAC Vintage Grand Prix!
Presented by eBay Motors





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 NA Vintage Sports 2000 Series for special sportsracers.  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 and sportsracers.  It promises to be a great weekend of vintage racing.

Our feature marque will be Mazda!  As such we send out a special invitation to all those that run Mazdas or Mazda powered cars – rotary and piston powered cars – closed wheel and open wheel.  If you race a Mazda, you won’t want to miss this.  Early rotary powered RX2, RX3, RX4, R100, RX7’s from the early FB’s to the lates FD’s.  Any rotary powered car up to 1999 is welcome.  Mazda piston engine cars are also welcome ie Miata’s, MX5’s, spec Miata, some Protégé and 626’s.

As the feature marque, there will be a special All Mazda race.

We also welcome the NA Vintage Sports 2000 (NA VS2) group.  Sports 2000 is a special class of two-seat, mid-engined, open-cockpit, full-bodied sportsracers that promise great, close competitive racing.

Special Races:

 We will be running some Special Races, as follows:

  • The “all Mazda” race open to all Mazda closed wheel cars (<2500 lbs).  (Note, Mazda powered open wheel cars will have a dedicated group in a feature race.)
  • The Nation's Cup.  This will be a Mazda “against the rest of the world (RoW)” race.  The race is a race to 10 – the first side, Mazda or RoW to get 10 cars across the finish line scores the win.  Last year, the MG’s eeked out an insane close finish
  • it should be interesting to see how the Mazdas fair this year.  More details will follow.  Open to VH cars and Classic cars < 2500 lbs.  Note we may have to do some sorting at the event, but please enter as either Mazda or RoW.
  • an Open Wheel Challenge – basically an “all comers” race for open wheel cars.
  • MG vs Triumph Challenge Race for these longtime UK rivals including award of the Tony Simms Cup for MG’s and the Group 44 Inc Trophy for Triumph’s

We have a full program of off-track evening events, as follows:

  • On Thursday evening tentitively will be a barbeque (with beer) followed by live rock’n’roll music (details to follow).
  • On Friday evening is the Johnny Greenwood Banquet in the CTMP Conference Centre (cash bar), followed by live rock’n’roll music in the lower paddock provided by our very own eclectic house band, Fun Comes Fast.
  • 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).  Sponsored by CPS Flooring.
