TORONTO, ON – Fresh from racing at the Legends of Motorsports Powered by HMSA at Mt. Tremblant last weekend, VARAC returns to its feature track, Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, to participate in the BARC-OC Canadian Touring Races on August 4-5, 2012.

Other race groups that will participate in the BARC-OC Canadian Touring Trophy event are as follows:
• CASC-OR GT Challenge

VARAC is the Vintage Automobile Racing Association of Canada whose members share a desire to preserve, restore and race historically significant cars in a form as close to the original specification as possible. We race cars made in 1989 or earlier in Ontario and Quebec. The highlight of our season is the Canadian Historic Grand Prix held in 2012 on Jun 15-17 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.
