TORONTO (Jan. 26, 2011)—The Castrol Canadian Touring Car Championships (CTCC) will compete on Continental ExtremeContact tires for the coming three years.
The CTCC, entering its fifth season, features two classes of competition: Touring for cars with minimal engine modifications and maximum engine size of 2 liters, and Super Touring for heavily modified touring cars with maximum engine size of 2.8 liters.
Mississauga, Ontario-based Continental Tire Canada Inc. will supply the tires and technical support and act as the series' “presenting sponsor,” according to a contact between the two disclosed at the recent Canadian Motorsports Expo in Toronto. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Conti replaces Toyo Tire Canada, which had been the series' presenting sponsor and tire supplier for the past four years.
The CTCC has scheduled seven race weekends this year, starting May 21-22 at Mosport International Raceway. The races are sprints lasting 20 to 40 minutes.
