Yeah dude, really well organized too. I wish I could describe everything but I can't, its just an experience you have to do. Even the camping and fucking around, and just being there was amazing. The track is so old, with so much history and character, nothing like Calabogie.

Greg was talking about an event in the fall, I'd be 100% in.

I have a ton of HD Hero cam stuff I gotta sort through, all my 20 min sessions.

Heres a few clips I made into 1 that Ryan (Spectrel) took from the back "straight", this is when you're comin in hot over 200Kph. So intense.

Thanks Ryan!

Turn it up loud and listen to Greg!

No prob, I had a blast even though I didn't run. That track is way too awesome to see it from the passenger seat though, I won't make the same mistake next time.

I've emailed Frank asking how we can obtain/buy track photos of the day...



Hi Carey,

They're all done by volunteer guys, so you'll have to be patient. I've heard that they have "thousands" - so this could really take a while.

I'm glad you had fun. I enjoy it!

really nice. really. So much easier to drive now, I don't feel like I'm struggling to keep the ship from sinking anymore. Had some fun with the adjustable shocks, full hard is solid, no give, soften em up a bit and the car grips well. Had to trim out a (previously broken) inner liner, other than that no issues. Topped out back stretch at 130mph ( 210km/h?) nearly everytime.

Looking through my vids my best time is a 1:48, but I was consistent 1:50. Certainly nothing to brag about, but good benchmark for next time. We even hit an autocross today and the car was soooo much easier to drive with the new setup.

I'm guessing Carey and Yan are low 1:40's?, they progressed really well throughout the day, was impressive to see them figure it out so well.

I think the track favors momentum and finding that rythem since it flows so well, I love it, absolutely love it, however, you miss your mark or your line and you know it as well....

Hopefully I'll have some Hero Cam stuff up soon, 20 minutes of Yannick and I. Hes smooth, couldnt catch/pass him but hung in there which makes me feel good. As far as I can tell I think I'm in the high 1:40's.

Interesting info for whoever cares, my Instructor was Paul Machan, awesome guy.

Turns out he raced at Ted Powell last year, which car?

The blue 63 Vette in GT-1 that was moping up the field.

this weekend was the best motosport time of my life....Still prefer Bogie, but my way to describe it is Mosport is a combo of Shannonville and Bogie. Rough, fun and "simple" yet technical super fast, blind and off camber challenges...The G forces are just out of my world, I kept having thoughts of a suspension/wheel part letting go or something lol

and auto x was well worth the extra night, marshalling for 3 hrs and just driving 4.5 minutes (we left early) that course was the most adrenaline pumping drive EVAR...rev limiting in 2nd alot, and slaloming in 3rd around 130K...fucking epic

I'll load up vids some day

LOL, sometime around 1230 saturday, standing out in a dry hot field all by myself, still without doing any runs yet, I was thinking hmm... carey made the right choice.

we did 3 runs and went home, sure it was super fast, but damn I'm here for a fun time, not a long time.
I heard they did only 4 runs Sat, we would have had to stay another 2.5 hours for just one more run.

Maybe.... :P

I think I was a tenth off FTD on Sunday (the computer conveniently crashed when someone they didn't know was fast). I was sand bagging on Saturday was 15th overall on R888's. Ran the morning Sunday on R888's was 2 seconds from FTD, put on the V710's, current FTD dropped by 3 seconds. I didn't think the tires would make that much of a difference, BAM 5 seconds from them! I had 1 run to make it count and ran a 1:36.5
