TORONTO, ON – Canadian Automobile Sports Club President Gunter Schmidt presents the Bob McCallum Scholarship winner cheques at the BEMC Spring Trophy Races.
The Bob McCallum scholarship was established to provide financial assistance to first year Motorsport competitors in the 2019 CASC-OR Championship, competing in the F1200, Toyo F1600 or Formula Libra Championship series.
This scholarship was made possible by a generous anonymous contribution to CASC-OR with the requirements to identify, encourage and foster new motorsport talent within Ontario, Canada and give financial assistance to the scholarship recipient.
