    Default Track goals for 2017

    What are your goals for this coming track season?

    Examples: Visit new tracks, lower your lap time at CMP, not blow up any engines, not fold any armco up?

    For myself, I want to up the boost in the Legend car, and hopefully hit 2:15. Win the Libre 3 class championship if they dont kick us out of it.

    If the Nascar doesnt sell, I'm making some improvements, and may buy a new set of tires. I'd like to run a couple PT races, and get down to a 2:17. Maybe also go try Mosport with it.

    I'm hoping to run the full season without having to fight with a gimpy motor. I'm looking to run most evenings with PT and GT back to back so something is going to break for sure I'm just hoping the big stuff holds up.

    Hitting 2:19 is my time goal but I'll trade that in a heartbeat for long back and forth battles with anyone.

    And finally, more short track. I'll take as much short track as I can.

    This is my problem with getting rid of the trailer and settling down at Calabogie. I haven't had much interest or time to move around to other tracks but as soon as I get rid of the rig I'll be itching to get away. It's how I work

    I'd love to try Tremblant.

    Sort out and enjoy the Vette a little and hopefully pull off a little profit, and then complete my Mustang project to then move on to a sweet hauler/prerunner build. All the while attending as much 1morelaps as possible.

    Have fun.

    Oh, and Chump at Mosport and Laguna Seca.

    Find someone offering a Chump ride at Bogie.

    But there's a bigger point here. The 1-series is the last car that BMW engineered before the Germans, as a car-making culture, fell out of love with driving.

    Do a 1morelap or 2. That's about it. Maybe sign up wifey for one or 2 novice sessions.

    1) Have a drama-free summer where I attend all the MCO track days
    2) Spend some quality track time with my bros, including the ever-elusive Physk and Ken from Kingston
    3) Put down some good times at Triathlon weekend at St. Eustache (Time Attack on Saturday, Oval racing in front of a crowd on Saturday night, and Autox on Sunday) during the weekend of Aug 5 and 6
