As part of my research into Morgan racing worldwide in the 1960s I am seeking information on Morgan entries and/or results from races at the newly opened Mosport Ontario track from the first meeting in 1961 to the end of 1963.
The track website doesn't reply so I assume they have no archives for this period.
Can anyone help?
Sincere Thanks

Hello, Jake. :wave:

I was born & raised just down the road from Mosport in the small berg of Bowmanville. I attended both international and club races over the period you note. Here's a capsule report on the events I attended.

1961: just the Player's 200 in June and the Canadian GP(for sportscars)in September.
1962: ditto the above plus virtually all the club races.
1963: ditto 1962.

I have to confess that I have very little recall of Morgans participating in the clubies. Few and far between and certainly with no specifics to mention.

Sorry to not be of much help.

Lots of Morgan results here, including a couple of races at Mosport in 1962:

Thanks Vince. That's a useful start but still far from complete.

I am right in saying that none of the F1 Mosport races had proper tv coverage? (Sorry my comment has nothing to do with Morgans but I just saw the tiltle 'Mosport'.)
