While big pro race events are always fun, there really is no better way to immerse yourself in motorsports than to visit (or compete in) a vintage festival. Here in Ontario we are lucky to play host to one of the best festivals run by VARAC at Mosport each June. Its hard to believe that this will be the 4th year in a row that we’ll be bringing our readers along for to our favorite event of the year!
Whether you are a grizzled veteran or have never been to a race before, the VARAC Festival is the place to be in southern Ontario next weekend. The paddock is open and spectators are free to wander among the incredible machinery. Most drivers are more than happy to meet the fans and talk about their car and if they play their cards right, the kids will probably be asked if they want to sit in a car or 5.
Over the weekend, there is lots of activity: a Mini only race to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the little car, the German Joust for Teutonic racers, a classic car show and MiniMeet North
We might even set up a command post for readers of The Garage depending on how the week goes.
