LOOR Racing

Jan 14, 2021

The LOOR Committee is meeting every month to plan for a full racing season in 2021. The committee has reached out to racers who had much to say about the modified racing last season and hopes to add some interesting changes in the near future.

The LO600 is back in 2021

RacingGreat news for all those long-long distance racers, the LO600 returns in 2021. The Lake Ontario 600 Challenge has been held every second year since 2014, providing the opportunity to circumnavigate Lake Ontario twice. 

LOSHRS Awards Banquet

LOSHRSThe LOSHRS Awards Banquet which would normally take place in a few months will obviously not happen, but don’t despair. We have flags for the winners of the races we held last season and are planning for the distribution of those flags. Once the winners have their flags, we are going to hold a virtual awards banquet to celebrate those winners. Stand by for details.
