    Average speed around CMP: ~125km/h
    Average speed around CTMP: ~150km/h

    Top speed for me is roughly the same - about 210 at CMP, and 215 (gear limited) at CTMP.

    your tires will take more of a beating at mosport because of the longer, higher-G corners.

    But, you'll be fine.

    Oddly, for our racecar, I find that Mosport is easier on the tires. Though the Jetta only weighs around 2000lbs. It's the slow corners where one overdrives the tires that I find kills them faster.

    The Canadian Tire Motorsports Park day was incredible! I had a great instructor that never slowed me down and only offered corrections when necessary; a really nice old guy.

    The car ran awesome and the only thing I'll want to have next time is better tires. I'm still running the tired old RS-A's at the track as they just don't want to wear out! However, as soon as I can get my hands on another pair of Conti tracks tires I'll retire the Eagles. I never once felt that the tires couldn't handle what I was demanding of them but I wasn't demanding very much in the corners.

    By timing my videos my average was 1:48s (almost bang on for every lap where I wasn't being taught the line or caught up in traffic) and my top speed on the back was 221 although on most laps I would let off around 215 and coast a bit so I wouldn't come into 8 too hot.

    I very quickly made friends with turn 2 and loved the way 4 plunges down then fires you up into 5a. This whole track is pure joy. Loved it.

    As the event was put on by Castrol they had some track cars there and they were taking guys out for a very laps. Having heard so much about Sasha (he was on the track with the 370 but took people out for rides in the Hyundai) I went with him and was not disappointed! Not the fastest car I've been in but the way he threw it into the corners was very impressive. Reminded me of a scary ride I took in a Vette earlier this year ;-)

    I have two videos (both shaky...this was my first time using the GoPro's and I need to find better mounting spots for them), one of just myself, and the other mainly of me sticking behind my buddies IS-F so he could have some camera time. His car is fast but after my cam he just couldn't keep up. Enjoy!

    Don't do it Mario, mosport eats STi engines. Unless you have baffles, then carry on

    Shawn, I’m so tempted. like Mont-Tremblant, it’s always been a dream of mine to drive at Mosport. I’ve tried so many track this summer but not this one cause everybody familiar with Subaru knows that an STI can’t go there, but since I had all this bad luck with my engine this summer, I now have a bigger oil pan, pickup and baffle, so guess I can.

    No point by, what does that mean. It’s like racing? who ever has the inside of a curve as priority?

    Why can't STI's handle Mosport? Oil pick-up runs dry in the high G corners?

    Yeah something like that, then boom from oil starvation. :-(

    Mario, no point means the guy in front doesn't have to give one. You still have passing zones, and the guy in front is expected to hold his line while the other guy makes the pass. The guy in front is still expected to lift when needed.

    Srsly man, you'll love it... Come on!!!!
