The young Montrealer swept all three Toyo Tires F1600 Championship Series races (for modern-era F1600s), held as part of the 40th anniversary Vintage Automobile Racing Association of Canada’s (VARAC) Vintage Grand Prix. Bedard is now a perfect nine for nine in 2019 Toyo Series action.
More than 300 beautifully restored race cars from the past 50-plus years of motorsports competed during the three-day weekend, ranging from MGs and Triumphs, to Volvos, Porsches, Corvettes and a variety of single-seater Formula cars, on CTMP’s world-famous Grand Prix circuit.
