The program will be particularly timely for racers who will be taking the all-new 2013 Scion FR-S to the track. With performance credibility inspired by the AE86 – a vehicle well known to Canadian Motorsports enthusiasts - the FR-S fits perfectly with Scion's passion for racing. And it's practical too, with a 2-plus-2 seating configuration and fold-flat cargo area that's large enough to transport a full set of race tires for a day at the track.
"The all-new FR-S is a legit sports car – a car that is light, nimble, sleek, sporty, and offers a pure driving experience on the race track," said Larry Hutchinson, Senior Executive Director of Scion in Canada. "We're excited about the contributions that both the FR-S and Scion Racing contingency program will be able to make to enhance Canadian motorsports."
To be eligible for the Scion Racing contingency program, Scion drivers must participate in a minimum of two races. In helping to support tomorrow's racing talent, monetary prizes of up to $500 are available, plus up to $300 for a second place finish and $150 for a third place finish. A division champion will be paid $800.
