The avalanche of off-season motorsport news continues, further interrupting my off-season presentation of great motorsport journalism by great motorsport journalists. But there will be more of it, trust me. Up next (if we really do get a break in the action): Peter Manso and the writing of Faster! A Racer's Diary, with Jackie Stewart, in 1972. Meantime . . .
Canadian Tire Motorsport Park has issued its 2014 big-event schedule and it's everything we hoped it would be. The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will be back at the historic, Bowmanville-area, road circuit on Labour Day weekend (Aug. 29-31) and the new TUDOR United SportsCar Series will put on a show the weekend of July 10-13.
The season will kick off on Victoria Day weekend with the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series stock cars headlining the meet, which will also include the return of the Pirelli World Challenge Championship after a one-year absence, the SCCA Pro Trans-Am Series, the Ultra 94 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada by Michelin, Canadian Touring Car Championship and the Toyo Tires F1600 Championship.
