VARAC to Celebrate the Fortieth Anniversary of Formula One Racing in Canada

“The first Canadian Grand Prix was held at Mosport Park August 27, 1967. To celebrate that historic occasion The Vintage Racing Association of Canada (VARAC) will be hosting a Formula One reunion as the feature of their 28th Annual Vintage Racing Festival June 22–24 2007.

A number of Historic Formula One cars have already expressed an interest in taking part, and it is anticipated that at least two of the drivers from that first race will be in attendance. In addition to the Formula One cars and drivers, officials, workers, and the drivers of cars from the 1967 support races will all be taking part . A display marquee will be set up displaying posters, programs, photographs and other memorabilia from that first race. It will also be a focal point where people can meet, renew acquaintances, and rehash old stories.

In “The Day” Mosport was one of the favorite tracks on the Grand Prix circuit and is only one of two tracks to host not only Formula One, but Indy Cars, FIA World Endurance Championship events, and Can–Am Races. For the present owners of the Historic Formula One cars this is a “don’t miss” opportunity, a chance to drive these cars on the circuit many competed on when they were new.
