This event will be a rare opportunity for racers to compete on a fully closed circuit. Mosport is a 4km circuit that is well paved, wide and features many elevation changes. Its location is ideal as it is only about 45min North east of Toronto.

More information will become available in the next few days as the final details are ironed out. Some Pictures from the circuit are available at for more information email
