Setting the 6th fastest time in race 1 with the top 7 places on the grid being inverted, Blok would line up on the front row. After being engaged in a race long battle with Todd Chiappino and Guillaume Labbe for 2nd place, an issue with the differential saw Nathan lose performance with 5 laps to go and although he fought hard, he was only able to muster up a 5th place finish.
We have a plan to work on the differential, and looks like the finale at Complexe ICAR at the end of the month will be our last shot to get a podium and a win in 2023.

Futec Motorsports debut to the Super Production Challenge was met with a fair share of new team jitters to he shaken down after the opening 2 rounds to the season.
number 1 saw three time Canadian champion Nathan Blok behind the
wheel for the Victoria day Speed Fest at Canadian Tire Motorsport
Park (Mosport). After some problems with brake management and some
fuel concerns arose during testing, the crew pulled an all night
operation in the pouring rain to get Blok on track. Despite missing
qualifying and starting at the back of the 17 car grid in heavy rain
conditions, Blok made an incredible drive to finish 8th in the first
event, and 7th in the second. The inverted grid would see Blok
starting 3rd for the final event. Unfortunately he lost 5th gear on
the opening lap, and was forced to retire after 5 laps.
having the transmission replaced 2 weeks later for the second round
at Shannonville Motorsports Park, the 38 degree weather would see the
Futec 370z deal with overheating issues along with all the other
Nissans competing in the Super Production class. Some overnight fixes
to cool the car, and cool weather helped to relieve the overheating
problems. Starting in 9th, Blok made an excellent drive in race 1 to
finish 8th on track after winning a race long battle with 2 time
champion Olivier Bedard, but was penalized for a camera malfunction,
dropping him back down to 9th.
inverted grid for race 2 had Futec Motorsports first pole position.
At the drop of the green, Blok stormed off into a commanding lead for
the first 2 laps, before the fuel starvation issues from Mosport
reared it ugly head again causing him to retire from the race. With
the issue fixed i Blok head back to the track for the final race of
the weekend. However the fuel gremlins appeared once again causing
Blok to fall back to 14th.
Not willing to give up despite the continuing issue Blok climbed his
way up the grid to recover for an 8th place finish.
have had anticipated difficulties with the car, but that is to be
expected in any new team. Every race weekend, every session, every
lap we have gotten faster and more efficient. The crew has been
working tirelessly to get things up and running, and I'm excited for
the rest of the season. The growing pains are slowly coming to an
end, and now we can work at extracting the full potential from the
car to build upon the flashes of success we have been showing".
Blok’s next race weekend is July 7, 8, 9 at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville.

MIRABEL, QUEBEC – After a coming off a podium finish at his home track at Calabogie in June, Nathan Blok and the APEX V2R racing team headed across the river to Complex ICAR at Mirabel, Quebec for the 7, 8 and 9th rounds of the Super Production Challenge (SPC).

conditions where Blok qualified 16th

of the weekend took place Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning
respectively still under sunny conditions with the field lining up

massive drive and was knocking at the podium for both of them, but
unfortunately was only able to secure 4th
place for both races.

for a 2nd place finish.

track. This put Blok at a disadvantage, allowing #45 Nelsen Chan and
#50 Sylvain Laporte an opportunity to catch up to the field. When
the green flag flew with only a few laps left, Blok was under
immense pressure from both Chan and Laporte attempting passes at
every opportunity. And after a cliff-hanging and monumental drive
Blok came home with his first podium finish of the season, moving him
in the championship.
start of Race 1 was actually quiet uneventful, but the battle I had
with Nelson Chan at the end was lots of fun. Unfortunately he was
able to catch and pass me. A few laps less and the results would have
been far different.
Race 2 was quite uneventful. I was catching up to Kai in the last few laps, but some poorly timed lapped cars stopped me before I had time to get back and try to overtake him.
Race 3 however had so much happen, its hard to put it all in words. For a lot of that race I felt like I had a good chance of winning it, but settling for a podium with all the pressure I had behind me was still an amazing result.
Overall, seeing how much of a gap we closed from Canadian Tire Motorsport Park to Calabogie with only minor upgrades to the car, shows that we have the pace to fight for this championship. We aren't even half way, and with upgrades expected, the next race in ICAR we are expecting to take home a few race wins.
I would like to thank the crew for all their hard work and to thank my sponsors for their continued support Woody MVR, Arco Ltd, Sunsigns, H&H Construction, ENOES, Belder Tools, LAD’s Auto Recyclers, NAPA Pembroke and TD Products.”
next race weekend is July 9 and 10 at the ICAR Complex, Mirabel, QC.
Teaming up with the newly formed Ottawa based APEX V2R racing team this past Victoria Day weekend, 28-year old Nathan Blok returned to the track for the first time since 2019, wheeling a Scion FRS race car in the Production Class of the Super Production Challenge (SPC).
Given that the fast and challenging Canadian Tire Motorsport Park track favours cars with more horsepower, both Nathan and the team realized that this would be challenging weekend. The team are still doing engine development work as his engine was down 30 horse power from the other Production class competitors.

Saturday morning the 30 minute race
under sunny conditions with the field lining up for the standing
start. At the drop of the green Blok who was doing his first ever
standing start race had managed to pass several cars by corner 2.
On the Andretti straight
3 cars got into a collision and one car went off the track and into
the barriers. This caused
a red flag on Lap 2 as repairs were needed to the damaged barrier and
the race was unable to resume.

hit early afternoon with severe wind, rain, thunderstorms and a small
tornado. One person was hit by lightning and another person broke an
arm when the canopy he was holding on to lifted him up and then
dropped him. There was over a million dollars of damage to vehicles,
trailers, campers, etc. The APEX V2R team 40’ trailer was bent in
the wind, causing the back door not to close. Fortunately, it was
repairable and but there were 2 canopies damaged.

bumper of Dalziel’s Scion. Blok passed him going down the straight
but Daiziel remained right on Blok’s back bumper.

Cooper, but was unable to make a pass. Going into corner 3 Daiziel
makes it passed both Blok and Gravel, but Blok would have nothing of
it and passed Gravel back on the left and then continued the charge
by passing Daiziel on the exit of the corner, elevating him up to 3rd
place. Unfortunately by the end of the Andretti straight Gravel
had pulled ahead of Blok again.
On corner 2 of Lap 8 Blok went wide, which allowed Daiziel to again get ahead. But not to be deterred, Blok continued on and by corner 5 he was back on his bumper.

Nathan's first race in the SPC championship will take place at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park at the Victoria Day Speedfest on May 20-22.
RACE 1: The 40 minute Race 1 started late afternoon and ran under sunny conditions. At the drop of the green Blok #33 had an excellent start positioning his car on the inside of corner one. Holding the inside and going 3 abreast through corner one, Blok persevered and took over the 1st place position.
RACE 2: Mid afternoon on Saturday, the CTCC cars returned to the track for the second 40 minute of the weekend. The race saw Blok starting in 2nd, just missing the pole position by .038 seconds, based on the fastest lap from Race 1 . Similar to Race 1, at the start Blok passed Staikos #6 for the lead through corner 1, with Tom Kwok #55 pushing forward into 1st place in corner 3. As if it was deja vu, Blok again took back the lead going down the Andretti straight and then started to pull away.
RACE 1: The 25 minute Race 1 ran under sunny conditions. At the drop of the green Blok still getting familiar with the car added too much power creating wheel spin and allowing Fletcher to edge past him going into corner 1. Blok stayed right on his bumper through to the hairpin at Moss corner, until Fletcher took advantage of his 300+HP difference and pulled away on him down the straight stretch.
RACE 2: Early Sunday morning the GT Sprint/Challenge cars returned to a green track for Race 2 after a steady rain the night before. The race saw Blok starting on pole as the starting grid was based on Race 1 results. This time when the green flag flew, Blok was ready and easily took the lead opening up a gap by the hairpin at Corner 5. However by the end of the Andretti straight going into Corner 8 #111 Terry Fletcher and #601 Leigh Pettipas in his T1 800 HP Corvette were on Blok's bumper.
RACE 3: So with no power steering, Blok took up his pole position behind the pace car for the 20 minute race. The end of Lap 2 saw #125 Blok pulling away from top three T1 cars who were sporting a 300 HP plus advantage; #601 Leigh Pettipas, #01 Bart Slot and #111 Terry Fletcher.
By Lap 4 Fletcher had moved from 4th up to 2nd place and by Lap 7 had gained enough on Blok to make a pass on the inside of Corner 8 taking the lead from Blok. On Lap 8 Corner 5 saw Blok attempting to re-take the lead first on the outside of 5a and then on the inside of 5b but was unable to make it stick.
Fletcher and Blok sped bumper to bumper past the start/finish line overtaking a lap car on Corner 2. Blok moved to the inside of Corner 3 as Fletcher went wide and ran off the track. Making his way back on to the track Fletcher takes up the chase after Blok but unfortunately by Corner 8 of Lap 10 he went off the track again, this time hitting the wall and ending his race.
Blok continued on wrestling with the power steering until Lap 15 when he took the checkered flag 17.9 seconds ahead of 2nd place overall and 54 seconds ahead in class for his 3rd win of the weekend.
This made for a perfect weekend: 3 pole positions, 3 first place finishes and fastest lap of the weekend!
“I've driven many challenging races in my career, but Sunday's finale was easily the most physically challenging I have ever done. Terry (Fletcher) and I raced each other very hard and very clean all weekend and having the pressure behind me for the entire last race made my difficult task harder than it already was. I owe a big thanks to Blaise Csida and the BC Race Cars team. They gave me an excellent handling car, worked to fix the power steering pump right up until that last possible moment. I owe a big thank you to my sponsors who stepped at the last moment to ensure a successful weekend: Woodys MVR, Certified Labs, SunSign Graphics, Belder Tool, H&H Construction, McMillans Transmission, TD Products and auctionacar.ca.
Sunday came again with very humid weather and rain threatening on the horizon. With no new slick tires for Sunday available in Blok's budget, the best he could do was to qualify 7th out of 8th in class and 12th out of 18 overall. As luck would have it, one of Blok's local sponsor's “Woody's Motor Vehicle Repair” was in attendance and wanting Blok to have a fighting chance for the final race purchased him a new set of tires. This put Blok on a level playing field going into the final race on the 5.05 km long track.
Blok now set his sights on Wojceichowski, and by Corner 11 of Lap 5 makes the pass for the lead. Once Blok had secured a comforable lead he settled in to a rhythm for the rest of the race and brought home the 1st place trophy and the lead in the CTCC series.
To have yet another good weekend at home and to bring home a debut win and the lead in the championship for the team was a very fulfilling and successful accomplishment. There was a lot of drama in the background and even getting to race this weekend was a special opportunity and to come home with a 1st and 2nd place just makes everything that happened leading up to this event feel worthwhile.
A huge thanks to all my sponsors and everyone who put their support behind me and believed in me. I was honoured to do my job and deliver everyone the results that they wanted. “
