The fifth and sixth races of the 2020 Bracket Super Tour National Championship will take place on August 22 and 23 at ICAR Mirabel. The event sponsored by NAPA Auto Parts Canada is likely to attract a huge number of competitors as the season will ends in a few months from now!
No races will be presented on Friday while the ICAR Staff is putting on a Cruise Night. It will be possible for the racers to do time runs during the evening for 20$.
In the Super Pro category, entry is $ 350 for the weekend including the gate fee. A total of $16,200 will be at stake in this class alone. The payouts will be distributed among the best 16 racers from each day while Saturday’s and Sunday’s winners will each take home 5 grand!

The gate will open at noon on Friday and at 8:00 am on Saturday morning. Time runs starts at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday followed by eliminations at 12:30 p.m. Super Tour events are renowned for quick turnarounds and despite the high number of competitors, races usually end before dinner time!
