The Canadian Touring Car Championship (CTCC) has been around for 10 years. It showcases race cars based on their original stock street version in three different categories (Classes). The entry-level Touring Class, Super Touring Class, and the Grand Sport Class for higher power sports cars. There are several classes of cars on the track including BMW (Mini), Honda, Hyundai, Nissan, Toyota, GM and Ford.
All three classes compete at the same time on the track. Chris and Ashley will be in the Grand Sport division. CTCC operates in Ontario and Quebec. Its season commences in May and, after 14 races, ends in September.
It is fast and furious racing with a mix of both amateur and professional competitors driving production (limited modifications), manufactured cars at extremely high speeds. The races are very close, challenging, and dangerous.
CTCC racing is followed by over 150,000 on social media networks. CTCC is well known and has extensive media coverage on television, in magazines like Pole Position, online videos and articles, press releases and more.
