Hawn Motorsports has been a family owned and operated motorsports team for 52 years. The team operates out of Oro-Medonte, ON and calls Sunset Speedway Barrie, ON home. Hawn Motorsports was created in 1967 by Donnie Hawn. From 1967 to 2005 Donnie “The Bear” Hawn competed in several North American racing series including CASCAR, Super Late Model and Challenger Late Model. Throughout Donnie’s long and decorated racing career he built Hawn Motorsports brick by brick into the team you see on track today. Sadly Donnie “The bear” Hawn passed away on August 24th, 2017 at the age of 71. This painful event for the Hawn family, has became the fuel needed for a rocket ship ride towards multiple series championships and awards for Hawn Motorsports, since Donnie passed in 2017.

     Donnie’s Sons, Tyler and Daniel Hawn, who took over operation of Hawn Motorsports in 2017, have been dedicated to building on the foundation laid in 1967 and maintained for so many years by their Father. Hawn Motorsports prides itself on being highly sought after by many organizations for technical, racing and driving advice and consultations. Our Technicians are highly skilled, experienced and remain current in their education of the racing industry. Along with a winning record and years of technical experience, Hawn Motorsports drivers have been awarded several Sportsmanship awards in recent years. This speaks to the “True Champion” attitude at Hawn Motorsports. We believe that being a champion requires more than just winning races. We believe being a true champion involves being an ambassador to your sport and being sportsmanlike in all ways. Our team also enjoys being an active and helpful member of the racing community and believes that strong connectivity within a community will help ensure its long and fruitful life. We pledge to be an active, contributing and successful race team for many generations to come.

     Although Hawn Motorsports original member Donnie “The Bear” Hawn is no longer with us… Donnie lives on through the hearts and minds of everyone involved with the team and his family. Hawn Motorsports is not only alive and well! It may just be stronger than ever!
