Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (formerly Mosport Park and Mosport International Raceway) is a multi-track motorsport venue located north of  Bowmanville. They have been presenting major league entertainment to fans since 1961.


The facility features a 2.459-mile (3.957 km), 10-turn road course, a Driver Development Centre and a 1.5 km kart track called Mosport Kartways.

The Driver Development Centre is a 2.88 kilometer advanced driver and race driver training facility, with the Bridgestone Racing Academy as its primary tenant. The Academy is regarded as one of North America’s top race schools, where students learn behind the wheel of a Reynard F2000 open-wheel race car. Several of Canada’s current crop of international racers have graduated from Bridgestone Racing Academy.

Did you know that the average person can get into road racing? The Canadian Automobile Sport Clubs (CASC) sanctions and organizes regional road racing events in Ontario. Some of these events require the completion of a racing license program and others do not. You can get more information on the various licenses available online at www.casc.on.ca

If you are thinking about your summer weekends and vacation plans, you will want to know there are five action-packed major event weekends in 2016 featuring the most varied and exciting racing line-up in Canada.

Why not get involved by training to be a Marshal or a volunteer? Motorsport Marshalling Services, a member club of Canadian Automobile Sport Clubs – Ontario Region (CASC) has been training and organizing marshalling services for amateur and professional motorsport events since 1978. They also organize marshals for each summer’s Toronto Grand Prix street race in Toronto.

Things happen fast with race traffic approaching 200 and even 300 Km per hour. Members are trained to promote the safety of competitors, spectators, and their fellow marshals by instinctively reacting and making the right decisions under pressure, even while racing continues at their feet.
