Canada’s biggest sports car race of the year, the Mobil 1 SportsCar Grand Prix, features the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship for exotic prototype and GT race cars, in their only north-of-the-border stop. In addition to Porsche, a field of world-class drivers will race high-tech cars from prominent global marques such as Acura, Aston Martin, Audi, BMW, Cadillac, Corvette, Ferrari, Ford, Lamborghini, Lexus, Mazda, Mercedes, and Nissan. Also in action over the four-day event are the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge and IMSA Prototype Challenge Series.

The IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship is focused on giving the fans an unforgettable experience. Canadian Tire Motorsport Park provides such fun, interactive activities as the popular “Open Grid Walk,” driver autograph sessions, and open team paddocks. For the "Open Grid Walk" on Sunday morning, spectators are allowed to gather in pit lane, along with all the cars, drivers and crews.


And like all IMSA WeatherTech SportCar Championship races, the event is KID FRIENDLY!!! Bring the whole family out for a great racing experience and the chance to personally meet the drivers and teams.
