The Mercedes-Benz Club of America - Toronto Section together with the BMW Club of Canada – Trillium Chapter and the Porsche Club of America – Upper Canada Region are collaborating to bring together fans and owners of these distinct German marques in various show and driving activities during the Canadian Historic Grand Prix at the newly renovated Canadian Tire Mosport race track on Father’s Day weekend, June 15-16, 2013.
Legends of the Autobahn is coming to Canada
The soaring success of the Concours of the same name held for the fourth time during the Monterey Historic Car Week attests to the attraction of a car show combining the major German car brands, now being held in Toronto too.
Holding just a car show however, is not enough for our Canadian Edition of Legends of the Autobahn. We go further by offering participants several additional attractions and driving activities during the weekend.
Canadian Historic Gran Prix
There is first of all the opportunity to spectate all the racing action taking place during the Canadian Historic Gran Prix. Now in its 34th year, classic racers from over 6 decades will be competing in various classes over the course of Father’s Day weekend. Enjoy the smell and sounds of authentic historic race cars.
Legends on Display
During the weekend, Mercedes-Benz (BMW and Porsche) automobiles and owners are invited to attend and park in the Legends of the Autobahn Corral. Where you have the option of getting your car expertly judged by specialists from the respective clubs (Sunday afternoon) or just park your car in the Corral (Saturday & Sunday) and enjoy the festival and driving activities.
Legends on the Hunt
Saturday morning you have also the option to be part of the scenic Legends on the Hunt Rally Tour through the picturesque Durham Region and (re)enter the Concours and Corral upon return around noon.
Legends on Parade
Sunday morning, owners will have the chance to drive the famous Mosport Grand Prix track during the Legends on Parade.
Legends on the Track
Finally drivers can immerse themselves to the fullest by taking their machines on some brisk “Hot Laps” around Mosport for the Legends on the Track on either Saturday or Sunday. Fast but safe (no prior racing experience or helmets required passengers welcome). What other car show gives you the opportunity to take your car on a real GP race track?
