The Motorsport Club of Ottawa (MC) is one of the founding-member clubs of the Canadian Automobile Sports Clubs, Canada’s national governing body for motorsports.
Created in 1949 as the Ottawa Light Car Club, MCO has grown to become the largest motorsport club in Ontario with more than 380 members who meet on the first Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. at Louis' Steak House on Cyrville Road in Ottawa for good times, to talk about cars and to conduct club business.
A non-profit all-volunteer organization, MCO organizes road races, car rallies, lapping (track) days, parking lot slaloms (“Autocross” events), winter driving schools and more for members of the public. An award-winning newsletter, The Link, keeps members informed while an interactive website, www.mco.org, provides Link articles, reports, historical and up-to-date information about events while giving members Forums to communicate with each other.
MCO organized, or helped organize and participated in, the following milestone events in Canadian motorsports history:
MCO won the 2007 CASC top event award for the Ted Powell Memorial Race Weekend with several thousand people in attendance to witness a spectacular race weekend at Calabogie Motorsports Park.
