Trillium bmw club perfomance driving school sept 12/13

After a complete sell out school at the Mosport DDT, the Trillium BMW Club of Canada is capping the track season off, with their Performance Driving School at the Grand Prix track at Mosport. Saturday and Sunday September 12 and 13. Cost is $430.00 + GST (which is a tax write off for all as it is a tuition to school) Includes Catered dinner Saturday evening at the track, in class instruction, Skidpad instruction, in car instruction, and of course the customary track walk/run/or bike ride Saturday after the track is closed. For all who are interested, not just students. A very rare opportunity to see what it looks like from a different perspective. Spectators are always welcome and of course never pay to watch. Track rides are available with instructors as usual, bring a helmet. For those who would like to register, please do so by following the steps on the Trillium website. If you have any questions about the club, or school please email me at John_Venditti@hotmail.com.

A little note: Helmets are mandatory on track, and Technical inspections by a licensed mechanic are also mandatory, no exceptions. For those of you who require a helmet, and cannot get one in time the club has a few for loan, but there are only 12 available, on a first come first serve basis (based on date of request to Stuart Sherman club registrar.)

In order to not be disappointed, please register NOW! we have a total of 90 spots available and 50+ have already registered. Just a heads up for the 24 of you we had to turn away last week because we filled the DDT School.

Cheers, and I hope to see you all there,
John Venditti

I'll be there, not sure if I am tracking, might just be there to suport my driver...and a great chance to network!!!!

If you have time I work strongly recommend everyone come by and check it out, this may also be the last chance you have to get a ride with John on the track and witness the 3 wheel turns first hand!! Ant and Rudy are steller drivers and rides with them will be a blast too, even on 4 wheels!!!!!!!!!

The simple fact that you can get rides on a legendary track with top notch drivers is amazing!!

Not to mention any day at the track is better then a day not at the track!!

BMW Canada has offered us up, (and we graciously accepted) a 2010 BMW Z4 convertible for the weekend. We're using it as a pace car for the parade laps during lunch breaks and for show during the w/e at the hospitality tent. Just a heads up to all. Yes, for those "just visiting" you will be allowed to follow the pace car at slower cruising speeds around the circuit during lunch breaks. No helmets are necessary for this. As usual, and further questions please pm me or email me at john_venditti@hotmail.com.

Cheers

Final reminder to all about the track weekend at the Mosport Grand Prix track Sept. 12 and 13th. We're also holding the Trillium club meeting on Saturday at noon. We're also offering FREE parade laps during lunch on Saturday at 12:15. Don't miss this time of departure, there will not be make up laps. All are welcome for this. If you want to stay for dinner after the track walk, which all are welcome to, it will be $15 for a chicken dinner and a beer with all of the trimmings and dessert. I won't be in pm or email contact after midnight tonight, as I will be at the track all day tomorrow setting up for the weekend.
Cheers.
