The 2021 edition of the VARAC Vintage Grand Prix celebrates the 60th anniversary of the Mosport Park circuit’s opening in 1961, so the event will have special significance this year.

The first major race held at “Mosport” was the Player’s 200 which was run on June 24, 1961.  Entries included Porsches, Lotuses, a Jag, a Corvette and assorted other race cars.  Many of the same makes and models will be running at the VGP.

The featured marque for 2021 is Lotus. We hope to have a significant cross section of Lotuses entered, including both production sportscars and purpose-built racing models.
