here is a link to the SOLO Ontario forum. There's were all the info from just about any club that does SOLO 1 or SOLO 2, the dates and locations of the events, etc.
I have never been to the BMW AutoX in Toronto but I have been told that the lot is not very large and the course is usually very tight. (favours the Minis)
We are lucky here in Ottawa, we have a very large lot (Corel Centre) and depending on the layout of the course, some competitors get even into third gear. So unless a certain Miata driver is designing the course of the day, the higher powered cars have usually a bit of an advantage. I have to say though that the organizers always attemp to make it as challenging and equal for everybody as possible.
I am not sure where all the different lots are in Toronto that the clubs are using, but i know some are quite small and other lots are huge. I heard that the Corvette Club is using a big lot and set nice, open and flowing gates, wonder why??
I wish we would have more bimmer guys come out to our events, but most of the time I am the only BMW. I don't understand this, these are such nice handling cars, I love to leave a 350Z, Porsche, STI and Type 'R' in the dust .... lots of fun.
