The Victoria Day Speedfest weekend at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park will be the highlight of the season for the Canadian Supercar Series. Featuring a mix of new and older sportscars, the series continues to attract drivers looking to showcase their cars in front of large and enthusiastic audiences.
"We have been working to find the right mix of cars," states John Bondar, President of the Canadian Supercar Series. "This year we have opened-up the category and we expect to have a wider range of race cars."
The will be a number of Radicals racing this weekend. A Radical is an open-cockpit vehicle that looks like a prototype endurance race car but on a smaller scale. They are powered by motorcycle engines and are known for their amazing handling.
Along with the regular Supercar competitors, they will be joined by the 944 Challenge Canada drivers who will compete in their Porsche 944. The Porsche 944 is an icon of sportscar racing here in Canada and internationally.
Fans are invited to explore the Supercar paddock to get to know more about all of the cars and drivers.
There will be two 40 minute races this weekend. The sprint-style format allows for 'all-out' racing between the competitors and leaves little room for on-track misjudgments or mechanical misfortunes.
"Over the years, many competitors have expressed an interest in endurance racing," continued John Bondar. "There may be a way to incorporate one or two endurance races in the 2016 schedule."
