We are pleased to announce that we were given the The Gord Wakeling Award by British Automobile Racing Club - Ontario Centre (BARC) for 2017. This prestigious award is given to the BARC driver that exhibits the most competitive spirit during the racing season. Notable past recipients include: Kyle Marcelli and Ron Fellows - we are very proud to be included in this group.
More about BARC, the British Automobile Racing Club - Ontario Centre was founded in 1959 by a group of motorsports enthusiasts in the Toronto area. The mission of the club is to be the club of choice for competitors, volunteers, fans and sponsors of motorsports in Ontario. BARC organizes races in southern Ontario in the summer race season, primarily at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park. In the winter, BARC hosts one of six ice race weekends held in Minden, Ontario. In collaboration with the Minden Kinsmen, the town’s Fairground is turned into a race-track made of ice, with 10-feet tall snowbanks from which spectators can watch as drivers skillfully race on slippery surfaces that change with each lap.
Many volunteers, drivers and crew members have chosen to join BARC, and over the years a number of prominent drivers have hailed from the club – among them, Scott Goodyear, Paul Tracy, Ron Fellows, David Empringham, Scott Maxwell and most recently, Kyle Marcelli and Robert Wickens.
