Trivia question revealed (Darryl Malone steps down as Ontario’s elected CARS Regional Director)

Wondering what the answer is to the trivia question posted below?  It turns out that the Federal Department of Health is none too happy to see tobacco advertising in any shape, fashion (lol) or form and that includes race suits.

For those who are pursuing Rallysport all is still well.  RSO asks that you continue to address all correspondence to the usual suspects.  If you would like to be Ontario’s CARS Regional Director, you can apply at the next AGM.

Trivia questionThe Feds were not amused when they saw this picture.  Do you know why?  It looks like you’ll have to use St LAC’s email to enter.  There may be fabulous cash or prizes for the correct answer.  Then again, there may not be.

St LAC meets with the new owner of Shannonville

What a difference a day makes.  It was a productive time of things as your executive traveled to Shannonville to meet the new owner. John Bondar — CTCC organizer — assumed ownership earlier and promised a brighter future for motorsport in our area and St LAC couldn’t be more pleased. We’ll do our best to create a new partnership with John going forward and we’ll keep you updated.  Who knows, but a new Lapping Night just might be in the works.

One of the first things I checked out was their new website.  No more pdfs for search results, you can see what’s going on right then and there.  Why not see for yourself?

All SMP events will require pre-registration.  For Car Lapping events click here.

Champ Car: Build it. Bring it. Race it.

ChampCar Endurance Series is for people like you that have always wanted to go road racing without all the hassles, huge rulebook, or obscene expense. All you need is a valid drivers license, some safety gear, and a race car, which you can rent from arrive and drive teams, or build your own car!
ChampCar is the simplest path to real wheel-to-wheel road racing!

The Streak: DNN Motorsports’ Four Year Honda Challenge Domination

By ROB KRIDER

I’m going to start this story by telling you the ending first. Long story short: we won the 2019 NASA Honda Challenge 4 National Championship at Mid-Ohio, presented by Toyo Tires. When I say “we” I’m referring to Double Nickel Nine Motorsports because even though I was in the driver’s seat smashing on the gas pedal when the checkered flag flew in Ohio, I didn’t singlehandedly win the championship. The team won, I’m just a small part of it.
