Story By: JIM CLARKE / CANADIAN LEGEND CAR SERIES – PETERBOROUGH, ONT – The branding may have changed, but the on-track performance remains the same as drivers and teams with the Canadian Legend Car Series get ready to take the green flag for the 2022 season.
Under the direction of Kevin Foisy and Robin Jongen, the former Eastern and Western regional arms of the Ontario Legends Series have banded together to launch a 14-round tour that will include dates on the familiar turf of Peterborough, Sunset, Sauble and Flamboro Speedways.
Again this year, the spotlight events include the 2-day Canadian Legend Car Asphalt Nationals – Saturday and Sunday, September 3rd and 4th – at Sunset Speedway, as well as a return to the 3-day Autumn Colours Classic – October 7th through 9th – at Peterborough. Series spokesperson Kevin Foisy says things are looking strong for the fresh start.
“With our cast of familiar faces and some new teams joining the fold, we’re looking forward to kicking-off the new season,” explained Foisy. “There are still a few pieces that need to come together to complete the picture, but we’re certain that everything will be good to go when the green flag waves to kick off the season.
Foisy – who has earned close to 100 main event checkered flags during his career as a Legends Car chauffeur – say the tour is pleased to continue its strong relationship with Peterborough Speedway who will host a handful of stand-alone dates, as well as the season-ending Autumn Colours Classic. Since the final show of 2021, the Canadian Legend Car dealer support network has seen partners in Gravenhurst, Ontario and Alyesford, Nova Scotia join Foisy’s original home base in Clayton, Ontario.
