Over the past few race weekends there has been a bit of grumbling around the media room about the Canadian touring cars and the somewhat shrunken grids as compared to last year. Beyond the series thoroughly up to date and exciting marketing endeavors, the Castrol Canadian Touring Car competitors proved this series is the place to race yesterday by putting on the absolute best race of the annual Grand Prix of Mosport. From the first lap to the finish line, there was excitement everywhere on track.
Not surprisingly, the familiar red, white and green Hyundai Genesis Coupe of Sasha Anis led the field towards me in turn 1. That lead didn’t last though as an uncharacteristic tie rod failure stuffed Anis into the tires in 3. That left Richard Boake in the black and yellow Subaru in the lead with Arek Wojciechowski in second.
