Canadian Touring Cars get new partner, logos and website for 2011 season

The longest racing series title in Canada just became a bit longer. Thankfully they’ve shortened the acronym! Now, the CCTCC is the CTCC.

Over the past few seasons, the Castrol Canadian Touring Car Championship has provided race fans and racers alike with some of the best racing in North America. For 2011, series President John Bondar has brought on Continental Tire as a new title sponsor for the series.

Obviously, this comes with a switch to Continental Tires. There is more to it though, as the switch also puts the cars on slicks. As the first race weekend will be the first time some drivers have been on slicks, that first event should be even more exciting for the fans as drivers adjust to the higher levels of grip that come with treadless tires. Once the field becomes used to the tires, we can expect the action to be even faster than it was last year!

The new package was revealed at the Canadian Motorsports Expo last weekend, along with the new series name: The Castrol Canadian Touring Car Championship presented by Continental Tires. We’ve got photos of the launch after the break.
