These pages are dedicated to the Chevrolet Camaro's and Pontiac Trans Am's that were campaigned in the Player's LTD/GM Motorsport series from 1986 through to 1992.

Approximately 90-100 cars were built by GM each year for this race series and were raced by drivers from across Canada at most of the premier race tracks in Canada (Shannonville, Grand Prix Molson, Race City, Mosport, Moslon Indy, Grand Prix de Trois-Rivieres, Westwood, Cayuga Speedway).

The majority of races were televised on CTV's "Wide World of Sports" and were often part of a larger race weekend such as the Molson Indy or the Grand Prix.  There was an average of 7 races per season with 40-50 cars/drivers enrolled in each race.
