CTMP’s 2023 Racing Schedule Revealed

Another fantastic year of racing is set to go green for Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (CTMP), Canada’s Legendary Home of Motorsport in Bowmanville, ON.

At Canada’s biggest sports-car racing weekend of the year, IMSA returns to CTMP in 2023 for the Chevrolet Grand Prix, and it’s set to be an event for the history books. The re-establishment of the historic “GTP” class and moniker, has the racing world buzzing with excitement. Built to the new FIA LMDh spec, these new prototype cars are simply spectacular. Will the track record finally be broken?

As always, the Corvette C8.R will battle against a healthy field of GTD cars from a spectrum of international manufacturers in the exciting multi-class format. Also featured on this weekend will be the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge, featuring a number of Canadian drivers including last years winners Robert Wickens and Mark Wilkins. Finally, the IMSA VP Racing SportsCar Challenge will complete the weekend schedule with a double-header of 45 minute sprint races and a renewed multi-class structure designed to test drivers on North America’s top racing circuits.

In May, CTMP’s kick-off to the season begins with Castrol Victoria Day SpeedFest, featuring the exciting action of the NASCAR Pinty’s Series in the eBay Motors 200. This weekend continues to celebrate the very best in Canadian auto-sport with the FEL SportsCar Championship Canada, Emzone Radical Cup Canada, and the Super Production Challenge filling the event roster.

Back again on Father’s Day Weekend is the VARAC Vintage Grand Prix presented by eBay Motors, the perfect time to visit the track with dad and the family. This weekend features beautiful vintage cars restored to their former glory on our legendary Grand Prix Circuit.

The season finale for the Canadian Superbike Championship rides into CTMP for the Superbike TripleHeader Weekend in August. With national championships on the line, this weekend truly produces some of the closest and most exciting racing on our calendar. Don’t miss the sight and sound of motorcycles screaming up the Mario Andretti Straightaway at 300 km/h!

Finally, the CTMP Labour Day Sprints will once again finish off the major event schedule with an all-Canadian lineup of racing action. The NASCAR Pinty’s Series returns for its second stop of the year at CTMP with the main event WeatherTech 200 race on Sunday. Joining the ground-pounding NASCAR field will be the FEL SportsCar Championship Canada, Emzone Radical Cup Canada, Nissan Sentra Cup, and Toyo Tires F1600 Championship.
