THE SERIES & THE RACING: ChumpCar Canada (“ChumpCar”) is a “series of automotive endurance races held on premier road race courses across Canada”. Since 2014, we have participated in races at Mosport, Calabogie and Watkins Glen. In 2018, DriveTeq plans to take part in 3 of the Canadian races (see below).

The cars have a low market values but are required to be properly prepared with racing safety equipment. There are reasonably detailed rules of participation but the bar for racing experience is relatively low. DriveTeq’s emphasis is on seat time, having a great experience racing on a lower budget, learning about yourself and racing (& practising) and having some group fun! All of the races are endurance races of one sort or another. Many are double 7 or 8 hour races.  If you’d like to know more about the series, you can visit www.chumpcarcanada.com.

THE CARS:

  1. #666 – Our sweet VW Rabbit GTi Mk1 race car has survived our first 4 years of ChumpCar. Cleverly disguised as a box of breakfast cereal, our Cereal Killa has brought down many a knight in shining armour. We have often heard on their retreat “Run away, run away”. The car handles very well and is reasonably fast on the straights. An absolute blast to drive. Safety – FIA approved roll cage, fire suppression system, fuel cell, front and rear bumpers, 2-way radio, and lights to name a few things.
  2. #667 – Our brawny VW Golf GTi Mk4 race car will makes it ChumpCar debut in 2018. The striking blue OCC Lasik livery is our welter-weight hard punching barn-stormer with roots in European endurance racing for the last couple of years. Tremendous road feel, handling, and power are the hallmark of this bruiser. Safety accessories exceed ChumpCar and local CASC requirements.
