The CASTROL Canadian Touring Car Championship (CCTCC) is often considered the premiere touring car series in Canada. Though the series itself has yet to travel to many tracks across Canada, it is quickly becoming a fan favorite among those that they have visited. This year, the series is scheduled to make an appearance at Mosport International Raceway, Shannonville Motorport Park, ICAR - Mirabel, Calabogie Motorsports Park, and the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivieres.


There are now only two classes in the CASTROL Canadian Touring Car Championship (CCTCC), both of which compete on the track together for a class victory and the overall win. The two remaining classes in the CCTCC are:

Super Touring (ST):
This middle class cars include such makes as the BMW 323, BMW 325, BMW 328, BMW M3, Dodge SRT4, Honda Civic, Honda S2000, Acura RSX-S, Volkswagen Jetta, Volkswagen Golf, Chevrolet Cobalt, Subaru WRX Sti, Saab 93, Mazda RX7, Mazda Protege, and the Lexus IS300.

The leading ST drivers of 2007 were Charles-Andre Bilodeau, Ian Madden, and Etienne Borgeat.

Touring (T):
The third class in the CCTCC is the touring class. It consists of cars such as the Mercedes C230, Honda Civic, Honda CRX, Nissan Sentra, Nissan 200SX, Mazda Protege, Volkswagen Jetta, Volkswagen Scirocco, Volkswagen Golf, Mini Cooper, and Toyota Corolla.

The highest ranking drivers of the touring class in 2007 were Alain Lauziere, Robert Calisi, and James Foote.

For historical purposes, I'll add that the series used to contain a Grand Sport class. This was discontinued in 2008. Here's the past information on the class, though they are no longer a part of the CASTROL Canadian Touring Car Championship.

Grand Touring (GT):
The Grand Touring class sees the fastest competition during the races. This top class sees people competing in cars such as the Nissan 240SX, BMW 325, BMW M3, Eagle Talon, Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Corvette, Mazda RX-7, Dodge Viper, and Subaru Sti.

The top GT drivers of 2007 were Sasha Anis, Robert Munro, and Roberto Sabato.
