CANADIAN TIRE MOTORSPORT PARK SET TO HOST CANADA’S BIGGEST SPORTSCAR EVENT OF THE YEAR
Canadian Tire Motorsport Park is again set to host Canada’s biggest sportscar race weekend of the year with the Mobil 1 SportsCar Grand Prix, July 6-9. The weekend features the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship with its exotic prototype and GT race cars, in their only Canadian stop.
A world-class, international field of drivers representing over 15 countries will pilot race cars from prestigious marques including Audi, BMW, Cadillac, Corvette, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Mercedes, Lexus, and Porsche. The star-studded entry list for the weekend includes Toronto’s Daniel Morad, who was part of the GTD-class winning Porsche team at the Rolex 24 earlier this year, as well as over 20 full-time IMSA drivers and four teams, including Corvette Racing and Chip Ganassi’s Ford GT team, that competed last weekend at the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans.The four-day event also includes exciting action from the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge, IMSA Prototype Challenge presented by Mazda and the F4 United States Championship series.
Many fan-friendly activities are scheduled for the weekend including the popular Open Grid Walk prior to the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship race on Sunday where spectators are allowed to gather in pit lane, along with all the cars, drivers and crews. In addition to the Open Grid Walk an event ticket allows all-access to paddock areas, located on the circuit infield at the north end near the start/finish straight – fans are encouraged to bring their Sharpies, autograph book, and camera because there will be excellent opportunities to meet and speak with the drivers.
“We are excited to once again have a great lineup of world-class endurance drivers, cars and teams coming to race at our legendary track,” said Myles Brandt, President and General Manager, Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. “And with the open grid walk and all-access paddock, fans are able to get much more up-close and personal with drivers and teams.”
There are also Car Corrals planned for some of the top marques including Corvette, BMW, Porsche and Mazda; the CTMP Marketplace (featuring a variety of vendors – some interactive – including the Chevy Race Face exhibit), and the CTMP Merchandise Trailer (selling official merchandise). The Pinty’s Trackside Grill is open all day to help feed hungry race fans.
