@VARACBoD • TORONTO, ON (May 19, 2015) - The Vintage Automobile Racing Association of Canada will open their the Vintage/Historic grid season on May 22-24 at the Mont Tremblant "Spring Classic". The Entry list for this grid is already stacked at over 25 cars with a few more to come.

Le Circuit Mont Tremblant is regarded as one of the finest racing circuits in North America and has seen some of the greatest names in racing, like Villeneuve, Andretti, Stewart, Moss, and many more. VARAC's Vintage and Historic cars will compete for championship points driving vintage Formula Fords, MGs, Triumphs, Jaguars, Porsches, Alfa Romeos, Lotus, Minis, Corvettes and more.

Mont-Tremblant is located in the picturesque Laurentian Mountains. With 15 turns and some long straights it is a challenging track, considered one of the finest and most demanding circuits in the world.

"Le Circuit is second only to Monaco in difficulty," said Jackie Stewart.

With more than 100 hotels, motels, condos and bed and breakfast units in the region, lodging is plentiful. Mont-Tremblant Resort, an alpine-style village right at the foot of the mountain, is nearby. Racers and visitors can enjoy French or international cuisine in more than 100 restaurants surrounding this iconic track.

The highlight of VARAC's season, the Canadian Historic Grand Prix, takes place Father's Day Weekend, June 19-21 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. The event continues to celebrate the history of Canadian motorsport and this year will feature the entire history of Formula Ford, including the Oliver Clubine Memorial race, run groups for all eras of Formula Fords and a special addition, the Toyo Tires F1600 Series at the CHGP as part of their championship schedule.
