HistoryEdit

2008–09 seasonEdit

The team did not race, apparently due to a lack of sponsorship cash.

2007–08 seasonEdit

Drivers: James Hinchcliffe, Robert Wickens

After an uncompetitive start, Robert Wickens scored all of the team's 75 points in 2007–08, as well as picking up another victory and four podiums. The team finished 9th overall.

2006–07 seasonEdit

Drivers: James Hinchcliffe, Sean McIntosh

Although the team scored in less races, Team Canada still managed to pick up a podium and finish in 11th position.

2005–06 seasonEdit

Drivers: Patrick Carpentier, Sean McIntosh

Team Canada had mixed fortunes during the first season. A victory, and a podium finish along with other consistent scoring helped them to finish in 11th position.
