EDIT: 1 year later. Ewald day is actually, Friday, May 25th, 2012. Geoff is not staying at the girly B&B this time. He'll be running from security on Yan's mini-quad! :peep:




Who's going? Where are you staying? Are you staying for the BBQ after?

roll call.

1. Geoff
Staying at Joe-lin Station B&B about 7k from Mosport, Thursday night only.
Not staying for BBQ because I'm heading back to Picton

Yan,Greg,Mattluh and myself (+more) are camping at the track, corner 8 this year cause we were too loud and partied too late last year for frank. Hence the comments about Ottawa people in his emails lol

We'll be there for the dinners as well.

We should exchange numbers, I only have yer email slowboy.

-Grassroots partiers.

running low on Wife-credits. Calabogie on Monday, leaving Thursday for Mosport, then staying for the double header in Picton.

Are you guys driving together? You'd probably be annoyed with the speed I'll be driving. Fuel economy is 25% better at 100 kph vs. 115, and I'll probably take hwy 7 anyway. Maybe Yan and I will convoy.

gchislett
November 28th, 2011, 10:15am
The instructor isn't necessary for you to make it safe for you. But, the lines at Mosport are tricky and I have no doubt an instructor would make you faster.

That said, if there's only 4 positions with instructors, likely someone (qualified) around will be able to show you the fast line.

sb_915

No gentlemans racing this year for sure. Maybe a lapping night or two. Only plan to do things with small time commitments.

The Vegas trip is already paid for (wife's conference, and travel points for my flight and extra hotel days). I figure something like 20 laps in a NASCAR at 170 mph will be good for the soul so might as well get it in before doctors and hospices take things over.

I think they're setting up where they normally have the turn onto the second runway, and then are running two seperate courses down each runway head to head. Check with Jamie, I think he did one there last year. I'm debating...not sure if it'll be worth it on Sat.

Sunday will be a 3 sided monster again AFAIK, I'm going to double check when I go down for the test and tune on May 6th. I hope Bill designs the course, cause the other idiots they have there...

That Petro Can station in Havelock is now way more expensive than anyone around. It used to be really cheap there, but this year I have been through there three times and it's always been over $1.50 for 94. So if you have cans, fill them up at home.

Spent most of my day dodging the meat ball flag for a leaky oil line fitting.

The guys at gateway racing ( their shop is on site ) were trying their best to get it tight, but it kept vibrating loose.
I'd get 15min on track before the marshals would meatball me for too much smoke. It was leaking on the header, which also made it near impossible to tighten.

I got one awesome session in at 1pm where I finally started using 5th gear. Just ridonkulous the speed I was reaching, I'd reach 140mph by the first marshal on the back straight and coast from there. But that was short lived and the marshals said that was it for the day.

Then I spent the afternoon hanging out with the gateway racing guys. They ended up replacing one of the fittings and it took them all afternoon to get it in, super tight spot.
