MAXXIS Enduro: Fun and Affordable Endurance Racing

Belleville (ON) March 6, 2019 - Corner2 Incorporated and Maxxis are proud to announce the launch of a new grassroots endurance road racing series: MAXXIS Enduro. This new series will be open for competition starting June 2019 in Ontario.

An amateur-level endurance racing series, MAXXIS Enduro is committed to providing affordable racing for grassroots competitors. The series will be featured on mixed race tracks, including road courses and ovals, for a unique and out of the box racing experience. The endurance format means that a typical race will be time certain, with a three-hour limit. With different categories based on lap time, competitors will be seeking supremacy in their own classes.

“I am very pleased to add this new series to our product line,” said John Bondar, owner of Corner2. “Grassroots motorsports is where it all begins, and we need to focus on this aspect if we want motorsports to grow in Canada. We are expanding our reach to provide accessibility in a well-organized and fun environment.”

“Launching this new series was a rewarding experience,” added Dominique Bondar, general manager and promoter of MAXXIS Enduro. “We have been working on this for about two years, and it all came together quite nicely in the past few months. With the help of Maxxis Canada, we want to offer a series based on affordability without compromising safety. I am excited to be part of this project, and I am looking forward to starting this new adventure.”

Maxxis is the exclusive tire of the MAXXIS Enduro series. As a brand, Maxxis is associated with winners, including Olympic athletes and world-record holders across an array of racing disciplines. Maxxis provides high-quality tires that win in competition and perform on the road. Pushing the limits of technology, Maxxis gives racers the traction they need. Ordering, service and distribution will be done through Groupe Touchette Inc., exclusive distributor of Maxxis in Canada.

Maxxis Canada issued a statement regarding the new series: “Maxxis Canada is happy to be partnering with Corner2 Inc. We are motorsport enthusiasts, and the Maxxis Enduro gives us the perfect opportunity to showcase the quality and durability of our products. The Maxxis brand is known worldwide for its off-road DNA and involvement in motorsports, so this is a great opportunity for Maxxis Canada to introduce itself to the Canadian motorsport scene and start gaining brand enthusiasts. We hope for a long-lasting relationship, and we look forward to working with John and Dominique.”

Special Registration Offer

The new series will be officially launched at the Motorama Show. Competitors will be able to register for the first event of the season and benefit from a substantial show discount. All registrations received at the show will be set at $500 (including tax) per event. A Maxxis representative will be on-site to answer questions about tire size and pricing.

Re: New Enduro Series

Are these events being run on the CASC race weekends? How do you fit another 3 hrs or tracker time into an already full event schedule?

Re: New Enduro Series

An Enduro with a spec tire and every class will be based on time what a great idea John. Have you been reading my posts you sneaky bugger! Lol. I believe this is great and you will see me there. This is what I call listening to what racers want and delivering, could it be contagious?

Re: New Enduro Series

“I don’t believe it” as Mr. Mildrew would say in ‘One Foot In The Grave’, an hilarious British tv show. If you haven’t seen it check it out, although Canadians in general may not get the humour.
Here we are talking about yet another Enduro series, give me a break!
I have just spent about 2 hours reading how to bring back all the racers that used to participate at Mosport. (Sorry about that, it will always be Mosport to me), and then this pops up.
How much longer do we ‘Sprinters’ have to suffer this indignation of the most boring and time wasting excuse for motor racing.
I feel sorry for our CASC volunteers who are facing a losing battle, and are taking the brunt of the blame for the current situation.
One of the issues is there are too many makes and models of cars in the grids.
It is impossible to satisfy all those variants, the format has to eventually become simpler.
Businesses face this problem constantly, and have to be pro-active with a minimum 5 year plan. Change is inevitable, and will happen with or without you.
You must be prepared.
With hindsight this should have happened 5 or more years ago. I am not laying blame anywhere here, we find ourselves in a situation today, and therefore today is the day we start making change for the future.
My suggestion is to look at a format that is a popular type of vehicle, easy fix, readily available, crate engine and spec tyre.
If drivers just want to race seriously, irrespective of the make and model they choose will eliminate the need for so many classes.
A format could be introduced to the Sprints this year yet, and built on over the next few years when it could deserve its own race series.
Just look at the popularity of retired trucks and stock cars is where I am going.
They are cheap to buy, fast (as race cars should be), cheap good tyre supply, look like race cars, easy to fix, safe and a riot to drive. Could also have a mandatory pit stop for driver change if necessary, which shares the cost even.
This will produce close, competitive racing at a reasonable cost and has great spectator value, who come to the races to watch racing, not cars driving around.
That’s my 5 penneth to all the Limey’s out there.
