It was an exciting weekend of racing at the Mobil 1 SportsCar Grand Prix at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park near Bowmanville, Ontario. The big race was the Mobil 1 SportsCar Grand Prix held on Sunday, which was race number seven of the twelve race IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship series.
The sun, blue skies and huge crowds were out for the sixty-sixth edition of the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Presented by Advance Auto Parts at the Sebring International Raceway in central Florida. And brightest light shone on Nissan, Porsche and Lamborghini!

We were invited for a ride in one of the first 2017 Ford GT cars delivered in Canada, that belonging to Richard L’Abbe’s. For the occasion, we happily ventured to Calabogie Motorsports Park, about an hour west of Ottawa, Ontario. For a new Ford GT, Canadian buyers pay about CAD$650,000. But that’s only in the very unlikely case that they qualify for one. So far, more than 6,500 people have applied for only 1,000 total Ford GTs, which Ford will release in batches of 250 per year.
To showcase exactly how capable the Ford GT is, 24 Hours of Le Mans veteran race car driver Stefan Mücke takes it to the track and attempts to break the lap record around the little‑known Arctic Circle Raceway, the world’s most northerly race track.
