What racing is on track during the weekend?

The British Empire Motor Club is hosting their 62nd annual “Indian Summer Trophy Races” weekend on the Grand Prix circuit surrounding the CAE. There will be action on track all weekend long including GT1, GT2, GT3, GT4 and GT5, Formula Libre (“Run-What-Ya-Brung”), Vintage/Historic, Formula 1600 and others. Saturday includes a 3-hour endurance race to close out the day.

Where can we watch the racing?

From just about anywhere. Remember that motorsport IS DANGEROUS and to always obey the safety officials and stay on the spectator side of the fences and gates. At NO TIME should anybody cross the fencing into the race circuit area. Doing so will guarantee permanent explusion from the park at CTMP’s discretion.

Is the show supporting any charitable groups(s)?

Yes! We are proud to be supporting the Humane Society of Durham Region. Half of our 50/50 draw and ALL of our raffle draw proceeds will be donated to the HSDR!
