Attention Canadian grassroots racers: Maxxis Canada and Corner2 Inc. are teaming up to launch the Maxxis Enduro, a new endurance road racing series for 2019!
The new series was announced at the 2019 Motorama Custom Cars and Motorsport Expo. Maxxis Enduro is committed to provide an affordable, unique and out of the box endurance racing experience to amateur racers.
Affordable, Unique and Out of the Box Endurance Racing Experience
Maxxis Enduro utilizes a three hour race format with up to three drivers allowed per car. In addition to the main race, there are practice and qualifying sessions on the previous day as well, ensuring plenty of seat time for drivers.
Competitors will be divided into four different classes from M1 to M4. Cars will be classified based on lap time, very similar to the CASC-OR GT format. Prize money will be awarded to the top three podium finishers.
