BMW Club Racing CAN/AM Challenge
This year we're continuing the cross-border competition with the BMW Club Racing Canadian American Challenge. The Can-Am Challenge is a homage to the historic Can-Am series that spanned the Canadian and United States border from 1966-1974. Our 2024 Can-Am Challenge is being run at two historic tracks, the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, August 2-4, and Watkins Glen International in September. A team-based points scheme will determine the winner and the glorious Can-Am trophy will be presented for the country that wins the challenge! Last year, the Americans took the trophy home with them again. 2024 is the year we reign triumphant and bring the trophy home to Canada. The Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, opened in 1961 is a former Formula One Canadian Grand Prix venue and today hosts the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. It’s an extraordinarily challenging, 2.5 mile, 10-turn roller coaster ride!
