    Was having internet trouble earlier... I re-uploaded them.

    Thanks - that was my best lap of the weekend. One of just a few laps where I never encountered another car.

    The first time I went to Tremblant, a couple of years ago, I was very much a newbie. Was driving my old Infiniti sedan. They record everyone in a database and they still had my instructor's comments from back then, so they put me in the slower run group. My instructor tried to get me moved but I guess there were too many cars already. I didn't really care. But it did mean that I was doing a lot of passing. Only gave a handful of point-bys all weekend (mostly to instructors driving their own car). Everybody (well almost) was very good with giving point-bys so it didn't detract from the fun at all. Had an absolute blast.

    Good oppurtunity for people who want to cut off their balls.

    3 runs groups. women only, advanced women and men, and instructors. Says advanced must have verified experience at Tremblant.


    Oh and maybe they updated their website?

    Tomorrow has open lapping with or w/o instructor http://www.lecircuit.com/news.cfm?id=21

    Go with the BMW club of Quebec, or le Groupe Virage. I did not pass sound check with my Cayman and modified exhaust. If your exhaust is not OEM, i would not bother

    If you're a non-member there's a "Non-member supplement" that can be applied towards membership in the BMW club.

    There for the 21 and 22 of August . . . everything else is a challenge for me because of travel or work.

    They test you for sound on the Track when you are full throttle at the red line, coming out of a turn, then black flag you and your day is done, no refund. . Sound check at Bogie is off track at 4,000 rpm. You get a sticker or you don't. You can't sound check off track at Tremblant. Sound check is done by a municipal employee who really enjoys his job.

    The same as Bogie, 91 decibels I think, but not sure exactly about the number. I was caught 2 decibels over the limit and the municipal worker, moves around the Track every session and his car is parked behind the gard rail. He is not easy to spot. I tried. First offense, they telll You about the problem and to fix it or go home. Of course I was short shifting the second session and looking for a silver Civic parked behind the Gard rail but he kicked me out way faster than the first time. I think I did 2 laps the second session.

    Hard to know. My car doesn't feel loud to me inside the car compared to my G35. That was loud, but I never had an issue with the G at Tremblant. We are talking about 2 stupid decibels here. Sounds are notes, pitch, reverb, waves
