Anyone live near bayview and steeles? Looking for a ride to and from the track - will split gas money. Looking to leave the car at the track on Friday (have a ride back).

I've got the sunburn as well. Well worth it though. I'm just sorry I had to leave early. Did you stay for dinner and beer?

We'll do anything for a ride and a t-shirt! I meant to ask you who hooked you up with the longer wheel nuts?

Sunburnt and exhausted, but again well worth it. I always have a ball at these things. Now, looking forward to the autocrosses, and the next school weekend in June!

Also a big thank-you to the volunteers who help make these events possible and successful! We had 10 volunteers this weekend to help make things happen. It makes the days smoother and easier for everyone!

Here's a list and a thank-you to all.

Dave Richer
Kurt Dawson
Rich Simpson
Debbie Marrotta
Graeme Arnaud
Rob Mackenzie
Scott Paterson
Dave Abrahmson
Flahview Ciobzie
Devon Kring
All of the instructors and Directors.

I got some from John Dimoff (Raven) and some from Suzanne (she did the race school - had Boston plates). The weren't longer just 17mm instead of the stock 21mm which were way to big for the Kosei wheels but worked on the rpf1 that I drove to the track on.

I should buy a set this week.

That was pretty cool, I'm glad I got several laps in with him. I didn't realize it was you getting in after me... couldn't tell for the helmet.

I couldn't believe the old black porsche turbo was able to outrun us on the straights. Jesus that thing was fast, and street legal.

So far I've been out for laps with John and Rudy, and Steve Gailits and John Dimoff. I'm gunna need a ride in a turbo car next time I think!

The BMW Racing School at Mosport was the most fun I had on the track for a looong time. When you think you drive the maximum that the car (or you) can handle when you drive the "perfect line" in an School environment, wait until you go two wide down corner 2 or corner 4 when you want to pass some cars ... it is a rush I will not forget for a long time.
Driving Schools will be ... ehhhm somewhat boring.

Here is a video from the mock race we had at the end of the Race school.
