Waterbury, VT – Following a joint meeting of all participating Quebec promoters and the American Canadian Tour, the 2013 Série ACT Castrol schedule has been announced.  Along with significant bonuses and increases in purse, the 11-race schedule will include races at Autodrome Montmagny, Circuit Riverside, Autodrome St Eustache, Sanair Super Speedway, and Autodrome Chaudière.


The season will boast the richest purses in Série ACT Castrol history with over $400,000 being offered, and will include an $80,000 point fund for teams that participate in 100% of the events. $20,000 will be awarded to the Série ACT Castrol Champion. Another $70,000 in tire bonus money will be spread evenly throughout teams that participate in the full schedule.


Major racing events will include Circuit Riverside’s Can-Am 200, a 250-lap event at Autodrome Montmagny, and the traditional 300-lap finale at St Eustache. The combination ACT US and Série Castrol event at Sanair Super Speedway will also be increased from 100 to 150 laps, requiring competitors to do a tire change.
