  • BARC Solo Sprint Canada Day Shootout

    ANNOUNCEMENT:

    BARC would like to announce that we will be hosting our very first Solo Event. The BARC Canada Day Grand Prix of Ontario will feature the Solo Sprint Canada Day Shootout, a 2-day event on the road course (the big track) at Mosport the weekend of July 1st and 2nd.

    We will be at the CSC Racing Open House this Sunday for sign-up. To enter you must have previous Solo I experience (preferably on the track itself) and numbers are limited to the first 30 competitors.

    Cost is $225 per competitor and includes 2 on-track sessions per day, free camping, complimentary gate passes for friends and family, bbq dinner on Saturday night for competitors, dj dance on the grid, fireworks and much more!

    Flag drops July 1st 9AM!

      Ok, why exactly are all the fun events on the same day as all the weddings I have to attend????

        See that's why you do what Pat and I did last summer when we had two weddings the weekend of the Molson Indy. We made a 20 minute appearance at the one on the Saturday and 45 mins at the one on the Sunday.

        We came, we gifted, we left.



        Or you could always suggest moving the wedding to Mosport......we could get a tent for them!

          Yeah, unfortunately, I'm in the damn wedding party! The second option might work though ... I can just picture the parade lap in the big limo around Mosport

            Tell them the tux place messed up and its blue with frills. The bride will freak and you'd be doing her a service by not showing up in that for the pictures.

              What type of saftey standards must we meet? Solo1 style or regional style (ie mandatory window nets, kill switchces, tow hooks etc).

                          While I am interested in your event, that's not true... Solo Sprints have a Big Track weekend in October.

                              Is that on official BARC statement?

                              I know we are supposed to email for details but I'm sure everybody wants to know the following:

                              1. How much time is being allocated for the "Solo" sessions?
                              2. Is there going to be passing allowed on the front/back straights? Re-gridding?
                              (I'll be the one being passed most likely... )
                              3. Are lap times going to be available?

                              Definatly sounds like a good weekend!
