The Vintage Automobile Racing Club of Canada (VARAC) held its 31st Annual Vintage Racing Festival at Mosport International Raceway, Ontario, Canada, enjoying great weather and exciting racing while hosting the annual Ã¢â‚¬Å“MG Vintage Racer’s – Focus EventÃ¢â‚¬Â. Since 1995 the MG Vintage Racers have annually teamed up with one vintage racing organization for their designated Ã¢â‚¬Å“Focus EventÃ¢â‚¬Â and this year a large turnout of MGs of all types and years came to enjoy magnificent Mosport. This yearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s festival also celebrated the 50th season of racing at this iconic race track.
It was a fun and full weekend, including the opportunity to be entertained by well known motorsport author and novelist, Burt “The Ride Mooch” Levy at the Saturday evening banquet. VARAC also played host to Canada’s largest Mini gathering, Mini Meet North, as well as the “Field of Dreams” car show that welcomed sports cars, and car clubs from far and wide with the opportunity to take part in Sunday noon parade laps on-track. Large fields were the order of the day in Vintage and Small Bore where 62 cars took to the field while 49 cars contested the Historic class.
