I'm registered!

Will we see any other Max members out for weekend as well?

A bunch of the Trillium guys are heading to that event and I'm trying to fit it into my schedule as well. I'll let you know if and when I could confirm!

Awesome! Glad to hear it. Make sure you come introduce yourselves :)

A huge contingency of Trillium shows up to Ottawa/hull chapter events all of the time as we all really enjoy Calabogie. Nigel our president, Steve, our track Chair, Allen our Race director and about a dozen of our instructors are at all of your events all of the time. Any time you see a Raven car it's usually a Trillium member as well. John Dimoff is one of our instructors and owner of Raven.

Cool - this will be my first event with BMWCCOttawa, so I'm looking forward to meeting some of you.

Well last weekend was awesome. After being mis-classed in the intermediate group friday, was bumped up to the advanced group for the weekend and it was so much better! The late passing and extra passing zones were awesome. Unfortunately, Saturday afternoon my release bearing in the tranny blew up, which then caused the pin to pop out of the clutch slave cylinder and I lost my clutch.

So I hung the car off the end of the trailer and put the front on jackstands. Pulled the exhaust, driveshaft, shifter, intake manifold (to get those stupid starter nuts), and transmission to make sure nothing else was pooched.

Thankfully, one of the raven guys hooked me up with a new bearing. The plastic tip on the slave cylinder obviously broke off, and the fork had been ground down as it impacted the clutch basket. Luckily Derek from Autovation had brought a welder, so we welded a nut on the tip of the slave rod (that sounds dirty...) and then filled in the gap on the fork. Got everything back together saturday night, and finished the day on sunday. The school was an absolute blast, but I think the highlight for me was pulling off that big job in the paddock, and only missing one session because of it :)

Wow that dedicated. You should try and make your way over here in September for the Trillium school at Mosport! I think you would enjoy that greatly.

Haha it was a blast - my brother Chris helped me big time, and unfortunately he suffered a head gasket blowout in his e30 M50 318is on Sunday.

As for the Trillium school - I wish I could! Mosport is a track I've been meaning to get to this year, but it just hasn't worked out yet. It won't work that weekend either - I'll either be crewing for a team at Targa Newfoundland, or crewing for 8Legs Racing at ICAR. No driving for me that weekend, but lots of fun anyways :)
