Shannonville (ON), February 12th, 2021 – Canada is the latest country to join the GT4 family as SRO Motorsports and RACE Events Inc. have signed an agreement that will bring the internationally recognized SRO system to CTCC. CTCC presented by Pirelli will add a separate and unique GT4 class which will complement its existing TCR and GT Sport categories.
Working with the SRO system, GT4 drivers, teams and manufacturers can rest assured that the competition will be intense but fair. CTCC’s team of experienced officials have already begun to examine the GT4 specifications to ensure the balance of performance (BoP) is maintained throughout the upcoming season. The GT4 homologated race cars will now be able to compete in Canada’s premiere sports car series.
