Planning for 2014 Season
Planning is well underway for the 2014 Canadian Supercar Series (Supercar) season. The series has received some excellent feedback from its competitors on how to best position and grow the series in the future. The schedule is being finalized and will consist of several double-header race events.
Currently, three event weekends are confirmed. The season will begin at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park on May 16-18 at the Victoria Day SpeedFest. There will also be events at Calabogie Motorsports Park on June 21-22 and in Trois-Rivieres on August 7-10. The Grand Prix Trois-Rivieres promises to be another must-attend event as the FIA World Rallycross will be featured for the first time.
All 2014 events will consist of practice, qualifying and two 30-40 minute races. Based on competitor feedback, Supercar is considering the possibility of adding a three hour endurance race in 2015. "Over the years, many competitors have expressed an interest in endurance racing," stated John Bondar, President of Supercar. "There may be a way to incorporate one or two endurance races in the 2015 schedule and potentially invite some local series to participate which would just add to the fan and competitor experience."
Supercar has received several inquiries from competitors about potentially adding more Classes (categories) of race cars for the 2014 season. Competitors that race sports cars known as Radicals have expressed an interest in competing in Supercar. Radicals are open-cockpit vehicles that look like prototype endurance race cars but on a smaller scale. They are powered by motorcycle engines and are known for their amazing handling. Supercar is considering adding Radicals as a distinct Class within the series.
Competitors that have production-based race cars that do not fit into the current S1 or S2 Classes have also expressed an interest in competing in Supercar. Supercar is considering adding S3 Class to accommodate the drivers that have race cars with 1.6 to 2.5 litre motors and possibly other displacements.
"We recognize that competitors are looking for opportunities to compete in professionally organized series," commented Bondar. "We will carefully evaluate our options for this season with the goal of accommodating as many competitors as possible."
