    Default Le Circuit Mont-Tremblant

    Its been 2 years since I last went there. I still think it’s one of the best track in North America. It’s fast, got lots of elevations and fast corners. Geoff was also there for his first time instruction with the BMW club. I think he loves it too.

    I'm thinking of going sometime in August, who organizes the events ? Would like to know where to find a schedule and organizer to sign up. What's it like compared to CMP ?

    The only way I know to get on track there is with the BMW Club of Quebec. Here’s the Calendar.

    Its well organized and the instruction is very good.

    I know the Qc Viper Club goes too but you need to be signed off for le Circuit

    The track is a cross between Mosport and the Watkins Glen. Feels big. World class big. High speeds. Elevations. Fast corners. Chicane. Hairpin. Carousel. One of the longest straights.

    You mean the Tesla Boston Chapter? That’s going to be the quietest lapping day ever at Tremblant

    It's an annual event. I've been to it once before - very well run. They make you sit through classroom instruction, which gets redundant after a while, but the on-track instructors are excellent. Lots of track time. Amazing track. Well worth the trip.

    Unfortunately registration is now closed. It was probably full anyway, I got an email a week ago saying there were only four slots left.

    Just got back from Tremblant myself. Attended the Boston BMW Club "Bimmers Across the Border" event.

    Had a blast. Weather was perfect. Love the 1-2-3 complex. Really liked the carousel - like Tempation only fun.

    Only minor sour note - cracked a rear rotor during the last session. At least it waited until the end!

    Here's one of the few clean laps that I got (lots of traffic):

    Things I spotted that I'll try to find in my video when I have time - a fox standing on the side of the track, patiently waiting for the traffic to pass. The owner's helicopter preparing to take off at Corner 10. (It was in the air on the next lap but too high for the camera.)
