TORONTO, ON., (April 29, 2014) – Building on the success of the Scion Racing Contingency Program in 2013, Scion Canada is excited to announce the launch of the 2014 program with a newly enhanced payout structure.
 
In a significant change, payouts will now be awarded for not only performing well, but also for the level of participation.
 
“The Scion Racing Contingency Program has only been in existence for two years, but we have already made a major contribution to grassroots motorsports in Canada,” said Cyril Dimitris, Director of Scion Canada. “We look forward to continuing the momentum in 2014 for this exceptional program. As part of its evolution, we’re pleased to announce changes to the payout ratio to better reward racers who demonstrate a higher level of participation.”
 
Through the Scion Racing Contingency Program, Scion owners can pursue their passion of motorsports by competing in a series of sanctioned closed course events like autoslalom, time attack, racing series and drifting.
 
The program enables Scion owners to showcase their vehicles and driving skills in a safe, regulated environment.
 
In 2013, thirteen participants from across Canada received payouts from the program with four reaching the maximum of $4,000.
 
“I love the fact that Scion is supporting grassroots motorsports,” said Colin French, 2013 Scion Racing Contingency Program participant. “There are people who are amazed that Scion is presenting that type of program and they are now thinking about joining it.”
 
This year, drivers can claim up to five first-place finishes where they can earn between $100 and $800, depending on the series.  For participation, payouts range from $40 to $350 per race. Drivers can claim participation payments for up to five races.
 
The program is open to legal residents of Canada who have reached the age of majority in their province/territory of residence at the time of participation and hold a Canadian driver’s licence.
