The Toyo Tires F1600 Championship Series was scheduled to start its 2021 season in early June at Shannonville Motorsport Park.
However, the pandemic prevented race events from starting until provincial restrictions were lifted. The revised calendar kicked
off in June at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park as part of the VARAC Vintage Grand Prix.
A month later, the series returns to Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in conjunction with the BARC Canadian Touring Trophy Races.
This event was followed by the championship’s only visit to Calabogie Motorsport Park.
Teams are in action again on the Labour Day Weekend at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.
The penultimate event occurs during mid-September at the BEMC Late Summer Trophy Races.
The Celebration of Motorsports at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park is the replacement for the weekend cancelled
early in the season and acts as the series finale.
A total of eighteen contests will be conducted during 2021 to determine category champions.
The single-seater, open-wheel race cars in the championship are powered by one of two engine options - a four-cylinder, 1600-cc Ford engine or the 1.5-liter HPD Honda L15A7. Both motors produce approximately 120-horsepower. A mixture of European and North American chassis is used by competitors. Minimum vehicle weight is determined by the suspension design and ranges from 1050 to 1125-lbs. Teams are required to use a spec tire – the Toyo Proxes R888.
Drivers collect championship points in one of two groups.
The manufacture date for the individual car and not the model is used to determine the year split and whether a vehicle is categorized as F1600A or F1600B.
The fourth weekend of the 2021 Toyo Tires F1600 Championship was conducted at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. Drivers would collect points in three races on the ten turn 2.459-mile road circuit.
