Super Series/VRRA Weekend
Super Series has extended an invitation to VRRA Members for the July 10/11 Super Series event at Shannonville Motorsports Park. The invitation is open to P3 Lightweight, P2, P1 and all earlier bikes including vintage sidecars, and Super Series will accept your 2021 VRRA racing membership if you only enter a vintage machinary.
The schedule will follow the Super Series format with one practice/qualifying session and one race per day. Vintage bikes will have their own practice session and race. Vintage sidecars will practice and race with the SRA sidecars. This is an excellent opportunity to get some track time before the VRRA event at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park in August. Super Series plan to run the long track for this event.

CSBK and Pro 6 GP Race Series
The Pro 6 GP Race Series and the Canadian National Superbike Championship, CSBK, have confirmed an exciting opportunity for Period 3, Period 4, Period 5 and 250GP bikes to compete at Calabogie Motorsports Park. The focus of this plan is to offer a replacement for the recently cancelled VRRA Calabogie round, due to ongoing Pandemic restrictions.
Vintage race classes will run in conjunction with the combined Calabogie CSBK National opening round/Pro 6 GP Race Series event.
Additional information is available on the CSBK Website
VRRA Vintage Festival (CTMP)
There was a tremendous response to our Calabogie registration campaign – and I think we can all be proud of that – but after and crunching the numbers the Executive regretfully announces the cancellation of the 2021 Calabogie VRRA event.
This is disappointing news but COVID-19 Ontario border closings and travel restrictions – especially for competitors in Quebec and the US – have made it difficult to ensure the event was run in a fiscally responsible manner. The club’s deposit is safe though and will be applied to our 2022 event.
Again, a big thanks to the many members who showed their enthusiasm support over the past few weeks, and we ask that you carry this over to the next event. Vaccination rates are up, cases are now dropping, and travel restrictions are set to be relaxed on June 16th.
The VRRA Vintage Festival at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park (CTMP) will be held from August 6-8 and will include 3 full days of Sprint and Endurance on one of North Americas best circuits. Registration is now open
If you entered the Calabogie round why not consider applying the refund to additional classes and taking advantage of our discounted entry fees for 3rd, 4th, 5th, etc. classes, or even the endurance race. There is no better way to get track time in our COVID condensed schedule.
Check back here and on Facebook for regular Vintage Festival updates.
About the VRRA
The Vintage Road Racing Association is Canada’s classic and vintage road racing organization and is the oldest such organization in North America. It was founded in 1980 by a group of enthusiasts who wanted to get their treasured machines back on the track. Their purpose: to ensure the preservation of historic motorcycles and to maintain the traditions of vintage and classic motorcycle racing in Canada.
The VRRA has grown and flourished in the ensuing years and today actively promotes four events each year to encourage and expand participation in the sport.

Find Your Ride
Do you have an old classic or vintage bike sitting in the garage that you no longer ride? Maybe you still ride it on the street you but you feel unchallenged. You may even have thought of selling it.
Why not bring it to the track?
The VRRA has a class for virtually every motorcycle manufactured from 1930 to 1989, and factory two-stroke Grand Prix race bikes manufactured up to 2006.
We would love to have you race with us!
VRRA Race Schools
Our race school provides a safe, structured environment to get started. Our experienced instructors will give you an introduction to competitive racing with ample track time to learn and get comfortable. You will discover how race weekends are run and how VRRA events are coordinated. You will learn how to properly prepare your race bike and how the proper gear will ensure your time spent on the track is safe and fun.
Of course for every rider the highlight of the day is being issued a race license that is recognized by every motorcycle racing organization in North America.
Ben and Dave are just two fun seekers who share a love for racing. In 2015, Dave needed a new team mate for the Razorback Racing classic sidecar. Although they hadn’t had much previous interaction, Dave kept hearing stories about his nephew Ben going on ‘crazy adventures’ and wondered if he would be interested in pairing up. He sent Ben a long explanatory email which ended with the question – “Do you want to passenger on a sidecar”. The answer was short and typical for Ben – “Yes”
Ben and Dave primarily race in Canada with the VRRA but try to stretch their season by catching a couple of extra race dates per year with ARHMA in the US. Future plans include a busier racing schedule as time and finances allow.
Ben is a rocks mechanic engineer specializing in rock stabilization and currently lives in in Timmins, ON. Dave works as a construction manager and lives in Alexandria, ON.
