Greetings from chicago. I was hoping someone in your group could help me out. I was wondering if CASC-OR accepted racing lisences from other sanctioning bodies? My girlfriend (SCCA) and
I (Midwestern Council of Sports Car Clubs) race a Spec Miata, and would very much like to come up and visit Mosport Intl. Is there any way i could look up some of your classes or could someone send me info on classes accepting miatas. A quick run down is stripped interior coilover suspension and completely stock drivetrain.
Any info would be greatly appreciated

If you come to Ontario, CASC-OR has clubs that run races at Mosport and Shannonville. Your SCCA license will be accepted at registration as long as you have all your supporting documentation. If you are moving to Ontario and are going to become a permenant resident, you should also be able to apply for your CASC-OR license without any issues. Once you have 6 additional races under your belt (and log card signatures) you can apply for your National license through ASN Canada FIA.
For racing sedans you have two choices:
The Ontario Touring GT series. Each weekend features 1x20 minute race and 1x40 minute race.Read the rules here (http://www.casc.on.ca/documents/RaceReg04%20AppxQ%20Section%20G%20-%20TGT.pdf) This is a two class series. Grand Touring and Touring. The rules are very simple, you must meet your minimum weight, and after that mods are pretty much free with the exception of forced induction, overbore and engine swaps.
The Ontario Sprint Races, being rebranded this year to "Ontario Challenge Cup", each race weekend features usually 3 x 20 minute races. Read the sprint rules here (http://www.casc.on.ca/documents/RaceReg04%20AppxQ%20Section%20F%20-%20GT.pdf). There are 4 classes, GTA, GTB, GTC and GTD. All classes are lap time based. Basically it's bracket racing, but road racing style. There is a class for everybody, all you must meet are the 2004 Race Regulations - Safety requirements (http://www.casc.on.ca/documents/RaceReg04%20AppxQ%20Section%20F%20-%20GT.pdf) and pass tech inspection. After that, you can do ANYTHING you want to your car when racing in the sprint classes - but of course, be careful if you ever want to race in the TGT or back in the SCCA if you mod your car out of those classes. You could run a miata with a 5.0l Ford engine, or a stupid huge turbo if you want.
Good luck! You're at the right place to ask questions though!

We would welcome you and any other Spec Miata competitors at Mosport for our Spring Trophy Races on May 15-16. Your licences and log books will be accepted by us and it can give you some inexpensive track time prior to the Victoria Day Sprints. This goes for any of the other competitors that want seat time at Mosport.
