Vintage Racing at Mosport 23-25 June

A few months ago, Rob suggested that interested members attend the historic races at Mosport (located just north of Oshawa) during the period 23-25 June. These races, organized by the Vintage Automobile Racers Association of Canada (VARAC), feature excellent wheel-to-wheel races by passenger cars, sports cars, sports prototypes and racing cars up to 1973.<p>Vintage racing is pretty cool. The public has great access to the drivers (some of them very famous), crews, cars and paddock areas. It's competitive racing, but in a very friendly and sportsman like manner -- the way that racing used to be before big money sponsorship ruined the sport.<p>Its not unusual to see 544s, 122s, 1800s and 140s on the grid. <p>Details on the race can be found at:<p><A HREF="http://www.varac.ca/Festival/fest_schedule.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.varac.ca/Festival/fest_schedule.html</A><p>Tickets can be purchased in advance or at the gate. Prices are listed at:<p><A HREF="http://www.mosport.com/roadhome.htm" TARGET="_blank">http://www.mosport.com/roadhome.htm</A><p>Click on the link marked "2006 Events tickets are now on sale". Refer to the column marked "June 23-25"<p>Those planning to stay overnight can find accomodations at:<p><A HREF="http://www.varac.ca/Festival/fest_accom.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.varac.ca/Festival/fest_accom.html</A><p>There's also camping in the infield, which is listed as free on the Mosport web site.<p>Rob and I will be meeting this week to work-out the details of the road trip. Chapter members interested in attending can e-mail me for additional details.<p>Paul
