^^That's true... I've seen auto-x's being run there before. Weaker ones of course. But it's not a terribly huge space... I think we've got more room where we were.

Bruno, what exactly are the bussiness at these locations, it suck but alot of places want to charge for the lots which would drive our cost up, and we don't want that.

Do you know people at these locations we could talk too?

First post here on Max I believe, My club (VMI in St. John's, NL) ran 16 events last season all together

I will be in Kitchener for a couple weeks at the end of the month and start of May, I'd love to make it out to an event, maybe two, while I'm there. I've got a new car and new race tires (both of which are actually rather used) to try out, mowing down a few cones seems like a good way to do that.

Welcome Jeff, hope to see you out!

I'm willing to travel for a kick-ass location (as i've been going to TLMC in Barrie for the past few years). DeHaviland Aerospace (beside Sunrise Propane, near Downsview) has a large triangular overflow-lot never in use (with NO lamp posts). I tried contacting them years ago, but never received a response. Shall we try back? Only problem I foresee is residential houses (literally) across the street.

I should be there from ~April 28 to sometime early May, depends on my job situation by then. Not sure if I'll be able to stick around until the 16th, although it would be nice. I'll have to check out Solo Ontario and see if there are any early May events in the GTA.

PM sent.

Thanks a lot, I will check out the Trillium Site. I will definitely be heading down to check out the action. I would LOVE to drive Mosport, I don't have a competition license yet though so the Solosprint would be out of the question.

Looking forward to my trip!
