People are afraid to drag race their cars... you think they would want to road course them?

the reason I didn't mention gingerman is mainly because yes we could try to rent the track but you have to go through this whole driver class of what to do and not to do. and I think it goes for quite a while. otherwise we can go and watch but it depends on what they have planned for the days we are there.

I would explore this as an option; we had several cars at the Toronto Motorsports Park in 2008.

Wouldn't hurt to call up and see what we would do. A driver meeting is no big deal as we have that every time we do a high-speed go-kart.

I agree with Geoff. Also, they may have an open track night or something that we could get in on without having to rent the whole track. When we did TMP in 2008, it was easy to get a bunch of cars interested and willing to pay deposits up front.....

My vote this year is looking for an autocross track. I want to see my car rip through corners risking breaking another steering bearing. I'm serious. I don't think my car will break when pushed. It just breaks for stupid reasons, unrelated to anything!

Road course would be really cool. I'd do it in a heartbeat. I think one of the other proposals mentioned something about autocross... Haha

I can definitely see what we can do about the track then. Obviously they won't have their schedule up for next year yet but I will call and find out.

Let's not forget that the 2008 Toronto Motorsports Park Road Course event was made possible by a $1500 sponsorship donation from Molsons for private usage.!
