First of Two Canadian Events Next Weekend
Updated: Jun 28, 2021
The first of two Canadian events on the Monoposto schedule is next weekend at Ontario's Canadian Tire Motorsports Park. The VARAC Vintage Grand Prix has been a feature of our activities for many decades. Unfortunately, this year the Covid pandemic continues to keep US/Canada border closed to US racers wanting to enter Canada. Notwithstanding this, the event is strongly supported with over 260 entries overall and 18 in the vintage open wheel run group. The usual race format for the Vintage Grand Prix provides for racing beginning in the first day. The grid for each race that follows is set by the previous race results. (It's not a good idea to skip a session in your group!) This means that good wheel-to-wheel racing begins early in the weekend and continues through Sunday.
COVID restrictions are also impacting the usually full social side of the Vintage Grand Prix. As a result, there will be no Monoposto party.
Following the Vintage Grand Prix is the other Canadian event on the Monoposto schedule is le Sommet des Légendes at Mont Tremblant. As I write this the status of that event is not clear. Not only is the matter of US racers entering Canada at question but also entries are not yet open for an event that occurs in less than four weeks. As better news, the five events that remain on Monoposto schedule following these two Canadian races look good so there is plenty of time to try to become a 2021 Monoposto champion.
