Yea until they find out about our 50km/h law and bypass Ontario all together south of the border.. I tried to check their site but it's super slow, probably too many people checking it out.

-Just saw this pulling up info for the Royal York "May 6 - If you happen to be in town, try to get a glimpse of the world's most exclusive, exotic and energetic car rally"

Are they actually stopping at the track in Shannonville to use it? or is it just a stop point? I think I'll make a trip to one of the locations to check it out.

Is this a repeat of what happen with the Mini's ? Then again there was that dead soldier coming back from overseas.

The soldier was due in Trenton at 2pm I believe.. So I doubt they would be out at 3pm all with Radar ready. My buddy said he saw 30 cop cars from Kingston to Port Hope...

Fantino is probably at the end with a huge BONER!

Just found the Gumballs drivers briefing on Youtube, they mention our "strict enforcement at 7:15"

The only cars that did anything for me were the Veyron and LP670-SV. The others were "meh" that you can see any day in Toronto.

Crazy atmosphere though, loved it!
