VARAC Vintage Festival 2007
Mosport International Raceway
June 22-24, 2007

The weekend of June 22-24 was the 28th annual VARAC Vintage Festival at Mosport International Raceway. This year was a celebration of the 40th Anniversary of F1 at Mosport. There were several vintage Formula One cars at the track. Additionally, there were over two hundred other vintage race cars in all classes.

The weather was beautiful and a good crowd was on hand.

Historic F1
The F1 cars attracted a lot of attention over the weekend.
The John Watson and Jacky Ickx cars never competed in the races. The Ickx car was used during a parade. Wally Branston, the flagman for the 1967 Grand Prix of Canada, was on hand to wave the flag to start the feature race on Sunday afternoon. He also waved the checkered.
