The Vintage Automobile Racing Association of Canada (VARAC) held their 42nd Vintage Grand Prix last weekend at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. Nearly perfect weather greeted the racers ready to bring the storied event back to life. This VGP was the first since 2019 and was heralded a success by participants and organizers alike.

The theme of the weekend was “MGs vs The World” and the MGs certainly made their presence known throughout all of the run groups. With over 200 total entries and a good contingent of cars from the United States, Vintage Grand Prix director Peter Lambrinos was very pleased when we spoke with him following the weekend. “It went really well. Everybody really enjoyed the weekend. It was finally back to normal.”

In addition to the on-track festivities, organizers had live music, free beer (thanks to local Publican House Brewery) and meals Friday and Saturday nights.

“From my personal perspective it was a nearly flawless weekend. I put down personal best times all weekend. The event was so well organized and well-attended, with lots of off-track activities.” remarked VARAC communications director and driver of the #17 1994 BMW M3.
