    The Board of Directors of the British Empire Motor Club, wish to invite the competition members of the BMW Club of Canada – Trillium Chapter, the BMW Car Club of America, the Porsche Club of America and the Vintage Automobile Racing Club to be competitors in a “Gentlemen’s Race” to take place at this year’s 59th annual BEMC Indian Summer Trophy Races at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park – September 14 & 15, 2013.

    The intention of the “Gentlemen’s Race” (GR) is to provide a low-key, fun event. Cars must be prepared to the safety regulations of the current BMW CCA or PCA Club Racing Rules or VARAC Rules for G70+.

    On track behaviour shall be to the appropriate club’s rule book. The 13/13 rule will be in effect for all sessions of the “GR Invitational”. Any misbehaviour will not be tolerated and will be reported back to the respective Club.

    To be eligible for this race each competitor must be competition licensed by one of the following organizations: ASN, CASC-OR, BMW, Porsche, SCCA, or FIA. For approval of any other licence please contact myself prior to the event. The vehicle must be a BMW or Porsche race car with an appropriate log book containing a current annual inspection. The log book must be presented at registration along with the competitor’s competition license.

    The weekend schedule for the “GR Invitational” will look something like this, however it could be modified slightly if you have a preference for the length of qualifying or practice sessions.
