SHIFTING GEARS

WELCOME!

Welcometo the 2023 edition of Inside Track Motorsport News’ Canadian Racing Guide schedule issue. This issue is one of the year’s most anticipated editions of Canada’s only national motorsports publication. Every year, whether it’s at preseason events like the Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo, or calls or emails from loyal subscribers, this is the issue I get asked about the most.

The 2023 Canadian Racing Guide will once again provide an invaluable resource to Canadian racing fans deciding on where and when to attend racing events in their neck of the woods, and the biggest motorsport weekends across Canada.

For tracks that have supported the Canadian Racing Guide with ads, we’ve included – in large, red, bold letters – the words “see their ad on page…” in the heart of their schedules. Please check out these ads as they usually include more detailed information about the series’ or facilities’ big events, and weekly show highlights.

We’ve also run full schedules for tracks whose promoters expressed an interest in having them appear in this issue. Together with Inside Track Motorsports News , these promoters make the Canadian Racing Guide possible, and we ask you to consider their facilities and series when making your plans.

Looking at the schedules, please note that where there are multiday events, only the first day appears in the schedule. For example, the Friday date of a three-day racing weekend might be the only one listed. Also, things change, so if you are planning to attend a race, please call the track or series and check their website first, before heading out.

As this issue goes to press, we encourage all the Canadian race car drivers, series and tracks to add editor@insidetracknews.com to your press release list. We regularly feature press releases on our website (InsideTrackNews.com) and consider them for publication in the printed magazine. Additionally, please feel free to join our busy Facebook fan page (Facebook.com/InsideTrackMotorsportNews) and follow us on Twitter (@Inside_Track) and Instagram (@insidetracknews) to follow the news and share your thoughts, via social media.

The 2023 Canadian Racing Guide will mark the third year in a row that the piece is being published in a ‘digital only’ format. As previously noted, schedules change throughout the racing season, for myriad reasons, including weather and track closures. Producing the Canadian Racing Guide in a digital format allows us to update schedules in real time so that the Canadian Racing Guide is always up to date and accurate.

Thank you to the fans, racers and promoters for their continued interest in this special issue. Please bookmark it as a favourite website and check back regularly as you plan your racing adventures. Have a great season everyone!

LOOKING BACK JOHN AND SHARON FLETCHER

weekend at Cayuga and he thought the same thing would work at Sparta. Nitro funny cars were the fastest growing attraction for any drag strip so they began looking for cars.

John had heard about this relatively unknown (at the time) funny car driver by the name of John Force, so he got hold of him and made the deal to have him be the featured car at the Can-Am Nationals – a home run! Emulating the old adage of ‘if you build it, they will come,’ the Can-Ams quickly became one of the top drag racing events in Canada, second only to the Molson Grandnationals at Sanair Dragway in Quebec.

In an interesting connection to that race, John was involved in trying to get the federal government to lift their leaded fuel prohibition to allow the NHRA event to continue at Sanair. NHRA had decided to stop coming to Canada for the event, blaming their decision on the federal ban.

Like most young men back in the ‘60s, John Fletcher was attracted to fast cars. His loyalty to fast Fords has continued to this day. He and his two brothers (Dan and Bill) decided to make money from their racing hobby and, in 1968, they formed Fletcher Brothers Performance.

He and brother Bill started campaigning a ‘66 Fairlane, powered by a High Riser 427, with considerable success. Their success with that car helped their business to grow and expand.

They then switched to a ‘70 Maverick, with a small block Ford, that won some races. However, like most racers, they wanted more, so they contacted Jack Roush and bought a killer 323” small block.

I still remember hearing a car at Sparta revving high and automatically assumed it was a small block Chev. No, it was the Fletcher Brothers Maverick, with a motor that could rev 11,000 RPM. Very impressive and very fast.

Their business was growing and they eventually had five Fletcher Brothers Performance stores, with three in Hamilton (Downtown, Mountain and Parkdale), one in St. Catharines and one in Burlington.

In 1983, John and Sharon discovered that Cayuga Dragway was available so they checked things out. After much deep

thought and consideration, they purchased the facility, taking over in 1984.

They ran the track for six years and succeeded in growing the business. They were innovators in the industry, with new ideas for bracket racing, match racing and the new up-and-coming Pro Mod style races. With 475 acres available, they offered lots of room for overnight camping and started making two-day events popular. An opportunity arose to sell the facility to a large offshore conglomerate, so they sold the track.

At the end of 1989, John and Sharon learned that St. Thomas Dragway might be available. They contacted Helen Harvey and discussions began. Bob Harvey had died in 1984 and Helen was running the track with her daughter Judy but Helen was ready to retire. A deal was struck and they bought the track, taking over in 1990.

They changed the name of the facility to London Motorsport, feeling that London was a much more recognized city than St. Thomas. I helped them out at the start by providing them with an F350 Ford duallie crew cab and happily ran their results each week in our Motion Motorsport Report, found every Friday in the London Free Press.

It didn’t take long for business to pick up and the car counts rapidly increased. John had run a popular event on the Canada Day

FUEL AND BORDER ISSUES

Along with several others, John’s group was able to present scientific facts supporting the safe use of leaded fuel at the event. Although nobody publicly admitted it at the time, it was believed that the racers felt the border crossing problems, along with the language issues, were the real reasons for the cancellation and not the fuel.

As a result of the national event being cancelled in the mid-1990s, the Can-Am Nationals became the biggest drag race in Canada. Of course, John Force had become a big player on the NHRA circuit so this really helped the event. Add in some Alcohol Funny Cars, some Jet Cars and some show cars and it quickly became the event that everybody marked on their calendars.

John and Sharon steadily made improvements to the St. Thomas facility. The original tower was moved to the opposite side of the track and a cinder block storage building, with a rooftop viewing area, was added onto it. A new control tower, about five times the size of the old tower, was built in its place and included several offices and two suites for spectators.

Guardrails were added, scoreboards were built and lots of advertising was sold. More big races were added and Friday night

I OPINION 8 Inside Track Motorsport News

Street Legal races brought in many new racers, thus feeding the popular bracket race program. Club racing became very popular and, almost every Saturday, at least one club would show up to have members claim bragging rights amongst their peers.

The climate changed slightly in 1995, when Andy Spriet and three associates decided to re-open the long shuttered Grand Bend Dragway facility. But decisions were wisely made to not directly compete with each other for the big events.

In 1998, John had a little health scare and I had been working with him to possibly build a stock car oval in the field to the left of the shut down area. In discussions, an agreement was reached for Linda and I to buy the track from John and Sharon. That deal closed in July 1998.

On a side note, I spoke to John Force at the Winternationals that year and asked him to come back in 1999 for the Can-Am Nationals.

He laughed and said that he couldn’t afford to pay all his guys and had stopped doing match races. He told me that he could

make as much as John had paid him for two cars by going and talking for about an hour and a half at some business conferences as a ‘motivational speaker,’ followed by more laughter.

The Fletchers had a horse facility outside Watford, ON and decided to build on the business they had established there. Today, Fletcher Trailers sells lots of horse trailers and horse equipment every year. They also have a reining horse facility that is very busy.

And in a case of history repeating itself, John and Sharon have purchased a late model factory Mustang Super Stockers and are back at it once again. John tells me that he hopes to have ‘Bogus’ Bob Elliott driving the car in the popular Can-Am Stock/Super Stock Series. After all, Bob has driven just about everything except the Zamboni at Scotiabank Arena, so he is a perfect pick for the driver’s seat in that bad boy Mustang.

John and Sharon were inducted into the Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame in 2013 and John was inducted into the Canadian Drag Racing Hall of Fame last year. IT

LE MANS ‘23

Ihavesome transatlantic airplane time (London-Miami), so a quiet spell for a bit of storytelling. I’m on my way to Sebring for a major ‘testfest’ of the GT3 Mustang (again), its sister GT4 variant, and the new GT MkIV, a picture of which graced the top of my previous ITMN dissertation (Challenges). As most of you would have clocked, that was a rendering, although our guys are now so good at the CGI stuff that I have been known to ask how the hell all the bodywork got installed and wrapped in the two days since I was looking at bare parts on the floor next to a rolling chassis in the workshop (the picture I was sent wasn’t real). But now, one ITMN issue later, I am heading to Florida to watch Maxwell drive the real car in anger. It is the second time it’s run with bodywork because we shook it out at Calabogie a couple of weeks ago; I was in attendance having a great day driving MkIIs and GT road cars trying to stay out of Scott’s way. It ran faultlessly and went fast! So, now’s time to beat the shit out of it over the rough surfaces of Sebring, the ultimate durability testing venue. Not only brutal bumps of varying frequency and amplitude, but also high 30s ambient temperature, stupid humidity, and enough bugs to evaluate all the coolers at 50 percent blockage. I’m staying in my 1974 GMC converted Greyhound bus and told the boys to turn the A/C to 100 percent yesterday, so it will be livable when I arrive tonight. In my old age I have forgone the comforts of a hotel (and associated team rowdiness) for a quiet night drinking scotch and catching up on emails at the track, in a coach only slightly younger than me.

Last week was all about Le Mans, where I did stay in a hotel because the bus is a bit large to be shipped transatlantic, but there wasn’t any going out to dinner or drinking over in France either. The schedule is really crazy because after scrutineering and the open

test day the previous weekend, things fully kick-off on Wednesday, but not in a normal way. Free practice starts at 2:00 p.m. and other than a couple of two one-hour rest breaks, continues through until midnight on Wednesday and 11:00 p.m. Thursday (the latter starting at 3:00 p.m.). By the time everything gets packed up and you fight the outbound traffic to the hotel, bedtime is normally around 3:00 a.m. The next day everybody gets to the track by 8:00 a.m. and that trip includes an hour of fighting traffic. No time for fun, and always tired. Friday is an ‘off-day,’ except it isn’t because all the cars are prepped to race, and the drivers are dragged all over the place for parades and other massively distracting events. The pit lane is opened to the public and it is an absolute zoo. But it’s really an event of events, spectacular when you step back for a moment and survey the scene. This year was the 100th anniversary (years) of the race and it was crazier than ever, more people, more special ‘happenings,’ more meetings (certainly for me) and more press conferences.

It was the last of those items for which I was in attendance, not actually having a Multimatic Motorsports horse in the race this year, and not personally engineering a car for a customer. We did have two large crews looking after the Porsche LMDh customer program (Jota) and our racing shock business, in conjunction with partner PKM; between the two companies we had dampers on 46 of the 62 entries. Our impressive two-story temporary workshop in the paddock was busy right up until the morning of the race.

My major contribution of the week was to participate in the official public launch of the GT3 Mustang. We did it on Friday, just after lunch, when there was a very big crowd up in the Manufacturers’ Village area of the paddock. And a large contingent of them, and the press, came to see what was in the “box.” For a few days before

76 Inside Track Motorsport News

the big day the car was on the Ford stand in a box made from LED panels that ran a huge countdown clock. Pretty cool. What we unveiled was our second test car, no fakery, that had crossed the Atlantic three times by that point (had been over for a full-scale wind tunnel test the month before) but this time rather than bare carbon it was wrapped with a deeply cool livery created by Troy Lee Designs, including the all-new Ford Performance logo (simply ‘FP’) on the side. So, a new race car, a new logo, and a new graphics partner. May as well get it all done in one go.

Ford’s CEO Jim Farley made a compelling introduction to the new race car via video, followed by Mark Rushbrook, the Director of Global Motorsport unveiling it and describing the high-level features, and then going through all the FP programs that the company has on the go. From a new Mustang Dark Horse ‘R’ spec racing series and GT4, GT3 variants, through NASCAR, Off-road (including the Bronco DR) and Electric programs, ending big with the recent Red Bull partnership on the next generation Formula 1 powertrain. I knew it all, but to hear Mark run through in one go was deeply impressive. No doubt Ford is fully committed to racing!

I closed the event with a detailed technical rundown of the GT3 car emphasizing that our development was fully focused on customer racing, as that is what the category is all about. Rather than bitching about Balance of Performance (BoP), which I have done a lot over the last years, on this car we have embraced it. Major attributes like aero and suspension kinematics have been specifically designed to be “in the box” (as specified by the rules) and made as benign as possible so that the car isn’t on the edge to make a lap time because the rules allow lots of headroom which is reined in by BoP. The result being that it is relatively insensitive to pitch and roll and can make the same lap time at the end of the stint as at the beginning. It’s been developed in service of the amateur driver, as it is the Bronze who often makes the critical competitive difference in Pro-Am racing, which most of the major series in the world have embraced. Additionally, I went through how we had designed a lot of pieces to be easily serviced as customer teams will be running the cars (also dictated by the rules); things like using front and rear subframes to ease the burden of a crash (only an end required instead of a whole chassis), as well as quick change bodywork, and finally a run down of all the best-in-class hardware and electronics that we chose to use. I hung on to just about everybody, there were a few guys in the back that ran out of beer and went for more (two returning). All in all, a very proud moment for Multimatic and especially Charles Cadieux and his team who put it all together. It was stupidly hot and my shirt felt like I had been wearing it in the shower at the end, so I retired to my office

behind the pits to air conditioning and a couple of 1664s.

On the run-up to the race there was huge interest around the Garage 56 entry; the internet was full of chatter and opinions. For those not familiar with that term, it refers to the last garage in the pitlane (at the pit-out end), reserved for an “innovative” entry. The high level concept is that the G56 car doesn’t need to comply with the series competition rules, beyond safety considerations, so it’s a kind of ‘run what you brung’ deal reserved for exceptional cases of novel experimental technology, alternative fuels, formula that won’t fit in ‘the box,’ and stuff that might provide great entertainment for the fans. It was first introduced in 2012 to provide an extra entry over the original 55 car limit (that now increased with 62 cars running this year) and the first entry was the very odd looking Nissan (Panoz) DeltaWing, followed by the Nissan ZEOD RC (which was the first car to do a full lap of LeMans on electric power) and an amazing entry in 2016 (SRT 41) allowed Frédéric Sausset, a quadruple amputee, to compete. A hydrogen entry unfortunately had to withdraw at the last minute and in my opinion Nissan’s other recent attempt at La Sarthe, the GT-R LM NISMO hybrid LMP1 should have run out of that garage to avoid embarrassment.

This year was the best G56 entry yet. A full-smoke present generation NASCAR, with a few tweaks to enable it to go 24 hours, get it through the two chicanes, the Mulsanne and Arnage corners and have enough poke to achieve a competitive top speed down the Hunaudiéres straight. Built and entered by Hendrick Motorsport in conjunction with NASCAR, it was immediately evident on Wednesday that they exceeded most of the performance targets; it was deeply

The ACO had planned to shuffle it to the back of the pack at all safety car yellows in the race so it didn’t get in the way on the restarts, but they changed the plan after qualifying when it became apparent that the wine and cheese cars were going to get in the way of the big Camaro whenever the track went green. It made me smile every time it went past the pits, even when I was back in my office behind them; the walls shook as it accelerated away from the exit of Ford chicanes. With seven-time Cup Series winner, Jimmy Johnson being ably assisted by Formula 1 Champion Jenson Button and sportscar ace Mike Rockenfeller (they needed a guy who knew his way around the place), the driver line-up included a guy to keep every type of fan happy. And to add insult to injury the team won the pitstop competition. Those in the know will think that ain’t so impressive now that Cup cars sport centre lock nuts; but they still use pump jacks to get the car off the ground, while everybody else on the lane had air jacks (simply plug the ‘wand’ in and up they go), and the jack man must run from one side of the car to the other. It was deeply entertaining, and they took the jack up on to the winner’s stand. You had to be impressed by it all, and everybody really was, except for a few naysayers that were taking it the wrong way. And, other than having to swap a transaxle late in the race (ironically a component from a sportscar supplier) the thing ran like a train and finished at full speed, unlike 30-plus percent of the rest of the grid. The whole deal was the idea of NASCAR’s owner. And so, it came to be…a Jim France car in France. It made me a bit emotional, so, so cool.

But this year’s G56 entry was not a first for American iron, obviously the Corvette has been competing regularly for the last couple of decades (not strictly iron) but 40-50 years ago there were regular sorties from across the Atlantic back when the rules were a little looser. Canada’s very own Maurice (Mo) Carter was there in 1980 with one of his famous red and white Camaro road-race cars that I regularly watched at Mosport. It DNQ’d but I have been told that the team was sent home for reasons other than a lack of pace. The story is an extremely amusing tale but is also highly controversial and not verified, so I will leave it out, any readers know of what I refer?

There were also the super cool Greenwood Corvettes (Spirit of Le Mans in 1976) that made the trip three times in the 1970s and

even some NASCAR machinery showed up once or twice. But none of that was as credible and impressive as this year’s invasion. Finally, to the main race (no more about what’s coming or 2023’s interesting outlier). Ferrari won it with their relatively new LMH car; simply said: they deserved to as the car was fast and had few problems. I felt a bit sorry for Toyota, having won the last five years when there was little competition, and then finishing second this year when the race was fierce with loads of capable machinery. It wasn’t the message they wanted to send, but in my opinion, it didn’t mean that in the past they only won because nobody challenged them; they were fast and relatively reliable this year and the race between them and Ferrari was an epic battle that could have gone either way. One Ferrari and one Toyota suffered substantial issues and fell back, but the two sister cars pretty much battled to the end. However, the four Porsche LMDH entries that use Multimatic’s rolling chassis did not fare so well. We all had big expectations for the three Porsche factory, Penske run, machines as well as the Jota privateer entry. All showed great pace but suffered myriad issues both technical and operational. There was lots of crashing (not just for the Porsches, it was a year of loads of wrecks). At one point the Jota car was leading the race, with their highly impressive young driver Yifei Ye pulling out a 15-second advantage during his stint only to bin it on the in-lap with three corners to go! Full rebody required, and out of contention. It was big disappointment for all involved. But, just like every bad Le Mans, we leave with hope for next year. IT
