The 2013 CANADIAN HISTORIC GRAND PRIX is set for Fathers Day Weekend, June 14 to 16 at Mosport/CTMP. The VARAC event is Canada's largest and most prestigious Vintage and Historic racing event with 200 beautifully prepared racing cars competing in six race groups.

The 2013 FEATURED RACE GROUP is a TRIBUTE TO THE CARS & DRIVERS OF ONE OF CANADA'S CLASSIC RACING SERIES - the PORSCHE 944 CHALLENGE CUPS from 1986 to 1990. Some of Canada's top drivers made this one of the most memorable series in what we now know was a golden period of Canadian road racing history. Among them: BILL ADAM, RICK BYE, DAVID DEACON, DAVID EMPRINGHAM, RON FELLOWS, SCOTT GOODYEAR, LUDWIG HEIMRATH, SCOT MAXWELL, STEPHANE PROULX, RICHARD SPENARD, DAVID TENNYSON, PAUL TRACY, JACQUES VILLENEUVE.

AND there is more than great racing in store for you! Check it out!

LAPPING/TOURING SESSIONS - Have you ever wanted to drive your car on the Grand Prix Circuit? Now is your chance! We have scheduled several sessions (two per day) for enthusiasts and fans to take to the track and experience the thrill of brisk paced lapping in a safe but extremely exhilarating charge around this world famous track. This will be the best twenty minutes that you have ever spent in a car.
"CHECKERED FLAG CRUISE" - Rock'n Roll into the track in your favourite ride on Friday evening at 5:30pm for this fun and free event. This Cruise Event welcomes all types of classic cars, hot rods, rat rods, street rods, customs and sports cars. It is "American Graffiti" with a racing twist. Following racing, Cruisers will be escorted from the front gates into the facility and onto the main paddock area, the centre of the race weekend. In the race paddock, they will join with race cars for a fabulous and eclectic display of automotive machinery not seen anywhere else. You will be steps from the restaurant and washrooms. Music will be supplied by Wild Willy. Best of all, participation and entry is free compliments of CTMP and VARAC. And who knows, we may have a special surprise in store for you.
"ESSO TOWER RALLY" - Commemorating the famous Esso Tower that was the signature building of Canadian Road Racing, we have put together a light-hearted Road Rally for Saturday.

This is something that motoring enthusiasts won't want to miss.
