There is a (Ontario Time Attack)CASC driving school May 5-6 weekend.
BMW Trillium Club has their Solo1/Autoslalom May 20th

Nothing that I know of in April @DDT, BMW Club is at GP track late April.

Ok, just wanted to make sure you had some experience, I wouldn't recommend the touge lapping days for first timers. The beginner class is sometimes pretty scary, with drivers who don't know where they are or what to do when a huge line up of cars are behind them.

Wouldn't want you to ruin that sweet 1M.

ya, you're right, scary newbies always expected, especially at the mosport big track with others event.

been to touge events for a few times in the past few yrs, quite proper managed, touge team people do kick silly ppl off the track, and they do go through drivers' meeting, I personally recommend the guys Herman and John who did lots of instructions to the newbies. Got huge loads of shots from Kevin, my wife and kids love them.

And always talk to the drivers at their touge events, quite educated people.

been to kplaygrd two times, whole bunch of young honda kids.. way more scary, remembered one time almost got hit by an integra there. no drivers meeting, not keeping everyone in the same page.

will probably do the mosport big track with 6thgear or apex again this season.

I also recommend BMW Toronto days, which are usually during the week, but well organized.

I think there is on coming up in May.

HANSON International will have a school at DDT on Saturday, April 21.
Most of the Trillium instructors will be there. Derek Hanson does class room instruction.

Keep in mind BMW Trillium Club offers excellent schools AND Advanced Solo Lapping events on Fridays and on the weekends during schools. This is a new format now. Tons of seat time, high quality events and great prices (tax deductible!). See the sticky post above under BMW Club of Canada section for details. If you qualify there isn't a better opportunity for Mosport Grand Prix track!

I know!.. had fun with bmw schools long while ago before.

This season, I guess I'm looking to run with Dr. Dexter, and Apex group at the big track, and Touge.ca on the other tracks again.

Like was mentioned earlier, you should attend a BMW Toronto lapping day instead. It has nothing to do with the Trillium schools that you are referring to. It's cheaper than Dexter days, run by the same people that organize Apex days, and not to mention WORLD'S safer than any other 'Hero' day like Touge, JRP, etc. The first BMW Toronto day is on May 22 FYI.

ya I know, will check it out and put it into my calendar.
I will still walk-in a couple Kensai/Dexter/Touge days with my 1M, and register one or two PCA-ucr day with my 944 as usual.
