Mosport BMW track day May 31, June 1

Any one interested in driving to Mosport for the upcoming BMW track day weekend? I would be driving from London. Its a 2 day event on Saturday and Sunday May 31 and June 1. The cost is $500 and includes 8 track sessions with an in car instructor. Its open to all levels from beginner up to expert drivers. You don't need a fast car as its not about racing but about gaining experience driving your own particular car. I did it last year and had a blast. Check out this link to see what it's like. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCWUxkFz2JQ

I have a convertible and it has the rollover protection system which allowed it to pass the inspection

Yep, you're fine with a convertible if it has the rollover protection.

Just bit the bullet and registered. This will be my second time but first time doing the 2 day event which includes a track walk and skid pad session.
I will be heading down from london friday afternoon May 30th and staying overnight near the track for a bright and early start on Saturday Morning.

Also there is an April class. U can go to mosport and see a class go through its sessions.... probably. I've gone to see on 2 separate occasions. Didn't participate then as I was not confident in my old neglected 325. I'm ready now since my little upgrade. The tipping point for me is that it's a class. An opportunity to learn from a licensed instructor.
