The Mobil 1 SportsCar Grand Prix is an annual IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship race held every July or August at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville, Ontario, Canada.[1] It was part of the every American Le Mans Series season from 1999 to 2013. Since 1998, the race is a three-hour race, although under IMSA rules, a "three hour" race is 2 hours 45 minutes, in order to squeeze the race into a television-friendly package. Previous editions of the Grand Prix also belonged to the World Sportscar Championship and the IMSA GT Championship.
