Hey everyone. Just to let you know, after seeing this Ottawa Citizen Mustang Race Series, I was disappointed that you could only run in a rented mustang, and the cost was certainly out of my budget. After discussions with a few other people that had the same frustrations, I started speaking with one of the owners at Calabogie Motorsports Park, and after a number of discussions over details, we managed to strike up a deal. It's pretty grassroots to for now, but i think that's half the fun! So may i present to you... the Ottawa Citizen Gentleman's GT Race Series!!!


THE OTTAWA CITIZEN GENTLEMAN’S GT RACE SERIES

Think you have what it takes to Race at Calabogie Motorsports Park. Why not test your racing skill in the Ottawa Citizen Gentleman’s GT Race Series. Limited opportunity!

What's a gentlemen's race?
It is all about camaraderie, safety, sportsmanship and just good fun! There will be specific passing zones on a fully marshalled track, so playing nice is mandatory!


How do I Qualify
1. You DO need to have been signed off to drive solo at Calabogie Motorsports Park, but you DON’T need a Race License. This entails having completed at least one full day at CMP with an instructor or equivalent.

2. You and your car must have an average runtime around the full track between 2:25-2:45.

3. You must be running a Hero Cam inside the car to record the race from the drivers perspective. While there should be a couple of Cams available from Calabogie MotorSports Park on a first come first serve basis, make arrangements to bring your own if you can.

4. You will require a SNELL Rated Helmet, M2000+ or SA2000+ . There will be a limited number of helmets available from Calabogie Motorsports Park, but again I would suggest you bring your own.

5. Your car must adhere to the CASC-OR Ontario Time Attack Safety Specifications located in SECTION 1 here: http://www.casc.on.ca/sites/default/files/2011_time_attack_regulations_online.pdf
The annual inspection list can be found here: http://www.casc.on.ca/sites/default/files/2011_safety_checklist.pdf
Calabogie Race officials hold the final word regarding the apparent safety of a vehicle. If they feel your vehicle is unsafe for the event, your vehicle will not be allowed on the track.

5:15 to 5:45 Practice & Qualifying
6:15 to 6:45 Gentlemen’s Race – Stadium (short) track

*The preceding schedule is for the Ottawa Citizen Mustang Race Series. Should there be less than 4 registrants for the GT Race, the GT race will run on track at the same time as the Mustangs. Should we have 4 or more registrants, the GT class will have its run group run during the off time of the Mustang Series.

Prizes
With a minimum of 5 GT Class registrants for a specific event, there will be a $250.00 Calabogie Motorsports Park Gift Certificate awarded to the first place winner of that event.

This is currently a pretty grassroots event, so we are currently looking for other sponsors to provide prizes and/or gifts for either placed finishes (1st, 2nd, 3rd, and Last) and/or for draws. If you or someone you know would be interested in providing prizes of some sort (gift certificates, cash, merchandise, etc.), please contact me at CalabogieGT@gmail.com


Race Rules
Race Rules Gentlemen`s GT Race (Subject to change)
1. Passing will be in specific zones and is by point by only, one point by per car. If you are the second car and don’t see a point by, you must wait until you do.
2. Under no circumstances is a pass to take place without a point by signal. Once you give the point by, you must let the car pass, you may not out drag it to the next corner.
3. Passing without a point by, or passing in a non-passing zone will result in a black flag, a warning will be given in the pit lane and a second violation will result in disqualification from that session.
4. Blue flags will be used to indicate a closing car. Repeated disregard for the blue flag will result in a black flag and a drive through penalty, so it’s not worth disregarding the blue flag.
5. This race is intended to introduce people to racing without the danger of car to car contact and drivers are expected to keep other’s safety in mind the whole time. We will do our best to not intrude on the racing with the blue flags but keep in mind that this series is a fun introduction, not the Montreal F1. Safety is paramount and we will pull anyone driving in an unsafe manner.


I look forward to this being a fantastic series this year, and for many years to come. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

--------------------------------

This was a fantastic event, and with everyone new to the short (stadium) track, it was great to see the times drop with every lap out there.

A big congratulations to Greg Van Dalen in the #16 Red 2002 Mustang who drove an amazing race and then turned it on at the end of the race for a total domination of the field and handily winning out inaugural race.

Other notes of the day:

- Ryan Quesnel had an incredible day in his 2005 Corvette shaving over 5 seconds off his fastest lap between qualification and the race.
- Matt Edmonds had to retire early due to a blown belt and failure of one of his tires.

For anyone considering doing this event, I'm sure we will all attest that this was an amazing day. Next race we will be on track at the same time as the CMP mustangs, so its time to show them what we can do!

Mark you calendars, the next event is Thursday July 28th, 2011, and we need registrations to keep this event going, and remember if you sign up for the remaining three events you save $50 per event when you buy in bulk (see the main description in the OP for full details)

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me at calabogieGT@gmail.com

See you at the track!

For anyone who ran in last year's or is running in this years calabogie cup,you can run in this:)

I opened this up to MR first, but this being released to the MCO, CASC-OR and other forums by the end of today. So if this is something you are interested in, get in, because spots could be filling up quick.

good work man!

I was really excited about this but also was a dissapoint

I think the issue for lap freaks will be with the short seat time for the money and time spent (CMP Cup is $367). And then there is the fact it's on Thursdays at 4pm which means afternoons off work

But the good thing is that one hour of lap time if cheap on gas, wear and tear etc...

I will try to make it to one of them but with an expecting wife and too much work it will be difficult.

I'm anxious to see if this will be a success and I'll set myself up for next year for shizzel!

Mechs02
June 5th, 2011, 07:41pm
Thanks man. Its been something I've wanted to do forever, but never really had the means to get something off the ground, now it looks like everything is coming together!

Keep me in the loop with which one you might be interested in. I've got a 4 month old and too much work to do, so i know where you are coming from! Hopefully we can do it again next year, I'd love to see it grow every year!

I don't wanna be "that guy" but considering its a decent chunk of change up front I'll ask

If I want to run 2-4, what are the cut of dates for payment?

I'm the kinda person that tends to run and event, then pay for the next after a successful previous event.

yah we nailed that. seriously pumped. had a great 30min battle with 4 cars.

Looks like this was a test, to see how fast we could be and well behaved. We qualified with the ottawa citizen mustang series, but we raced separately. Not a big deal, some of the best competition was in our own race. Stellar, top shelf and intense. I never lap like that. 10/10ths all the way. Can't wait to get the vid to you guys, I had the best seat in the house.
Taking the checker for the win and getting saluted by Dad working in corner 15, priceless.

Thanks Mat for setting this up!

Phenomenal time boys!!! I really loved the short track for this event!! Both Ryan and greg were awesome out there!! Ryan, I couldn't believe how much you stepped up your game between practice and race... You shaved like 5 seconds off your time! And greg, 10/10ths all the way, you were a bullet!! I really wish I could have finished with you guys, unfortunately 10/10ths into 10 gave way to a locked up rear end and flat spotted tires... Hurray for the DNF hahah. Ill post official results later today.

Anyone who thought this might be fun to try... It was awesome, get out to the next event!!

And greg turn 1 through 10 was intense!! I've never been through turn 9a and 9b so fast! I drifted it on one lap... And I broke loose in 15 at over 100 mph... You were right behind me for that... I hope you caught it on video!!!

Ohhhhh those were my black marks!! I kept seeing them every lap wondering who was braking through the turn hahaha. I went 14 to 15 completely sideways during practice. That T2R has changed how the grip goes down enough that i will have to adjust my rear suspension so i dont have so much oversteer.

Spectrel
June 24th, 2011, 01:10pm
Thanks man, I still have a lot to learn. I can't heel -toe very well yet, so I didn't even try to do it during the race. The issue was along the straight away and whole left side of the track I was at the top of third when I should have been going up to 4th but I was afraid to unsettle the car when I had to drop back down going into turn 10. This eventually caused me to over heat 2/3rds through, only took 1/4 lap to get the temps back down so no harm done. pumped for the next one, only one way to learn , just get out and do it!!

don't downshift for 10, no need. Carry the speed to 12, then down shift. torque is yer friend.

Mechs02
June 24th, 2011, 01:51pm
Practice that heel-toe on the street every time you drive. It will start to come together. Then it will just become second nature.

Agreed with the negatory on the turn 10 downshift. I was experimenting with both... towards the end when you speeds were getting really high from 1-10, the down shift became unnecessary, and a little tough to get everything together and settles before the corner..and upon further review, the reason i locked the rear... didnt blip the throttle enough....

Limit / Car+Driver

So when you push at the limit you go from say a 8/10, to 10/10. If you pull a Gary then you've gone beyond 10/10.

I usually try to keep myself in the 8-9/10 area. This talk of 10/10 is crazy.

Yea 9a and b are crazy fast on short track. I just watched my video with data overlay and I hit 190 kmh trying to chase Greg down going into 10. I think there are afew kms left in that area using the grass line and getting off my street tires. What I'm wondering is if there is enough time in 30 mins on short track to do a reverse start from qualifying and get back into pole with classes combined. We're probaly talking 15 ish cars next event......should be interesting.

Ryan with good tires you could probably be over 200 on that straight. On full track I'm hitting fuel cut off in 4th into 10 at 184km/h, I'm trying to find my short track data, problem is you need to brake for 9a if you carry a ton of speed.

Qualifying Results
1st Place - Greg Van Dalen - 2002 Mustang GT
Fastest Lap - 1:24.271

2nd Place - Matt Edmonds - 1991 Mustang
Fastest Lap - 1:25.470

3rd Place - Ryan Quesnel - 2005 Corvette
Fastest Lap - 1:28.242

4th Place - Lorne Edmonds - 1988 Mustang LX
Fastest Lap - 1:29.765
--------------------------------

This was a fantastic event, and with everyone new to the short (stadium) track, it was great to see the times drop with every lap out there.

A big congratulations to Greg Van Dalen in the #16 Red 2002 Mustang who drove an amazing race and then turned it on at the end of the race for a total domination of the field and handily winning out inaugural race.

Other notes of the day:

- Ryan Quesnel had an incredible day in his 2005 Corvette shaving over 5 seconds off his fastest lap between qualification and the race.
- Matt Edmonds had to retire early due to a blown belt and failure of one of his tires.

For anyone considering doing this event, I'm sure we will all attest that this was an amazing day. Next race we will be on track at the same time as the CMP mustangs, so its time to show them what we can do!

Mark you calendars, the next event is Thursday July 28th, 2011, and we need registrations to keep this event going, and remember if you sign up for the remaining three events you save $50 per event when you buy in bulk (see the main description in the OP for full details)

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me at calabogieGT@gmail.com

See you at the track!

Matt Edmonds

ps. All results will be posted as a current post, as well as in the original registration post at the beginning of the thread for easy access later.

No, it's his gigantic ego.

What a great night and great weather too! Wish i could have been racing with you guys! Oh well, I'll be driving on the 11th.

2 Weeks until the next event!

Wing... Congrats on the 3rd Place!!

Mortgage dude - I owe you 10 bucks still.

Oh and i talked to the Cayman driver about people getting upset about not passing. I think he is coming to the next event, i will talk to him again.

Erwan - glad to see you out there and congrats on beating your instructor!!

Jethro - glad to see you out there! Buy my mustang and compete with us at the next one!


Spread the word guys, lets get this series moving! Moving into two classes, GT1 and GT2 if we get enough people... which means more podiums and more prizes. We need to see more MR on the podium.

Spectrel we need you at the next race so we can get a pic of the original podium from our inaugural race!

Matt, won't help -- dude did the same last year and this year at the calabogie cup. He's pretty quick but when someone is on your ass let them by! If you can keep with them, then take it back. That's the point isn't it? Swap places back and forth if you are close.

I was hoping that I would get into a good battle with Klaus, if I wasn't stuck behind the Cayman so long I suspect Klaus and I would have traded places a few times that would have been Epic! Anthony passed me on the inside into 1 I think I should have followed his lead on the Cayman.

I'm willing to bet if I rode Klauses' ass for a lap he would have done the gentlemanly thing and let me by, then he would have been on my ass, because we were running identical times, so I would have let him by. Doubly fun!

Next time he wants to enter the race....decline. The way he drives just makes it frustrating for everyone. He's got a pattern of doing that.

I let him by as soon as he came up on me....maybe next time I'll sandbag him a bit. :-)

Matt can do whatever the fuck he wants, although, I believe he signed up with the CMP people for last night. He was driving the car I used last night all day to get a feel for the mustangs, then decided later in the afternoon to run his own car.

Jethro was awesome for letting people by and he's new to this! It is much harder for someone new to the track to concentrate on the track and letting people by etc I was impressed, even through 9a instant point by! Thanks dude!

Agreed, this is the way to do it. The exact same thing we were all saying during the Calabogie cup. That's the fun part the back and forth!

That's what happened ... I think he wants to run again in the August race... if so, then he starts in last place... let other people get in his way...

Yup. Guy is a TOTAL fuckn DOUCHE.

I got the same treatment in the GT Cup James. Rod his arse for 30 minutes. He lost it in the Gary corner on the last lap, and almost took out the guy in front.

He doesn't deserve to run in these events.

just kidding, i have it.. will upload when i get home tonite. I think I saw you for one lap I think. I should really get another camera for the rear, jamie catching me was way more entertaining.

qualified 7th, started 6th because steve fong broke, ran that way forever while jamie Steenbaker reeled me in, nothing I could do. I think she had a bad qualifier lap, becuase she clearly had me on time. held her up on the front straight, let her go by in 9a.. all good. She's a good driver. She even have a drivers license yet? lol.

I was talking to her and her uncle after the qualifying. She was happy with where she was in the field. She said she likes the battles.

Yup it was Jamie who kissed the rail in the Cup.... (that sounds terrible)

She spend years driving Legends... so i would have no issues losing to her.

She offered to take me out for my lunch time practice to show me the short track corner 1 lines. Jane in the office just gave her a "look". Probably should have gone with her.
