New York, NY – The F2000 Series heads to Canada this coming weekend for rounds five and six of the 2009 championship at Mosport International Raceway in Ontario. The F2000 cars will be sharing the track with the popular NASCAR Canadian Tire Series along with the Ontario Formula Ford Challenge (OFFC) and Castrol Touring Car.
When the F2000 Championship Series visited Mosport in 2008 it was the first time I had visited the famed track. I remember reading about it in Road and Track back during the golden years of Can Am racing. The magazine would arrive with articles containing pencil sketches and black and white photos about races that had occurred three months previous. (A far cry from following this year’s F2000 races in real time through Monty’s twittering, with color pictures on the website minutes after the action.)
