Super Production Challenge launches Classic category

Dozens of classic Touring cars are currently sleeping in shops and warehouses, and the organizers of the Super Production Challenge have decided to bring them back to life.

83 Porsche 944: Joe Sullivan
#23 1970 Datsun 240Z: Paul Knoebel
11-Delauault-VW Golf GTI
BMW 318ci E36
1972 Datsun PL510

Dominic St-Jean, President of Super Production Challenge and his partners have decided to create a new niche to allow the owners of these classic Touring cars to take them to the track again with the launch of the Super Production Classic category.

This new class will feature cars that were sold in Canada more than 15 years ago. All classic cars must comply with the current SPC technical regulations, but their engine power will be restricted.

This new class is designed to please the owners of the cars that ran in Québec, Ontario and the Maritimes some 15 or 20 years ago such as the Acura Integra, BMW E36, BMW E30, Honda Civic, Honda Accord, Honda CRX, VW Golf, VW Corrado and possibly the Porsche 944 Cup.

“I’ve been working on this project for the past two years,” St-Jean declared. “We wanted to get these classic cars back in action, but they must not interfere with the battle of the regular SPC entries. Fifteen years ago, these Touring cars had a power output of around 200 bhp. The technical rules of the Classic class are written in such a way that all cars will produce about 200 bhp.”

The Super Production Challenge is supported by BFGoodrich Tires Canada. The 2017 season starts May 8th at Circuit ICAR in Mirabel, Québec. The series will race twice at Calabogie Motorsport Park in Ontario.
