Leaded Racing Fuel– Breaking News, June 19 2010. The Gasoline Regulations have now been amended to allow for the production, import and sale of leaded gasoline for use in competition vehicles.
The National Association has been submitting requests and information to the Canadian Federal Government regarding the leaded racing fuel lobby for over two years. In January of 2010 the NAACC submitted ‘Briefs’ again to the Federal Government asking that the Leaded Racing Fuel ban in be extended for an additional five years. Many clubs and Associations across Canada have worked very hard on this project. As of June 19th 2010 the amendments have been registered and are in effect. The amendments will be added to the Orders in Council database in the coming days and publication will follow shortly thereafter in Canada Gazette, Part II.
