It's not a whole day, I am guessing around 3 hrs. We are looking to get no more than 30 cars, cost around 30-40dollars per car. All skill level welcomed. I will accept all members from maxbimmer or member's friends. We usually have a meeting before the track day for payments and rules like last year.

Some members on max joined us last year. Remember I am not only inviting ppl on max, there will be people from other places too. If you decided to ride a scooter to the track, I will let you join us for free but only off the track. Also I want to see wheelies and stoppies. LOL J/K

A nice friday evening, I'll give Linda from shannonville a call within next week for the actual date.
If you mean anti roll cage/bars. No you do not need a rollcage, but if you do have one DOT helmet is required.
Helmet is not required but highly recommended, I am bringing one.
All skill level welcome especially to newbies, coz im newbie too . Good time to get some practices on cornering/racing lines.

I just didnt catch one thing.
If i have a roll cage, helmet IS required.
If i Don't have a roll cage, helmet IS NOT required, correct?

Now, if the price is in the 40$ range, and helmet isn't required(i dont have one), and im not working (i dont work friday evenings), then i should be very interested in coming(as long as my car is in good order ofcourse).

Yes you are correct. Remember the lapping will start at 5:30-6:00, you will have to leave toronto before 3:00 because of the traffic. I will skip the school that day, grab some sleep and prep the car.

I am out of school after february for 7 months, so that shouldnt be a problem. As time gets closer, and u post an exact date, i will make sure i leave that day free. As for now keep me in mind as a 80% that i will be attending.
Another issue i wanna address, as a newbie, im not planning on pushing my car/or my self to its limits, will that create a problem in any way, will i feel out of place, will i have ppl cusing me off? Just some feedback. I don't want to be surrounded by pro's, if u know what i mean. In any case, im definitely looking forward to hopefuly attending.
