So when you go on cruises and you guys rip it up in the twisties, you're the fast guy of the pack? Then you may be fine. Talk to the CASC chief instructor, tell him the above and ask to come to an open lapping day to have him observe you. I'm sure you'll do fine and he'll sign you off, maybe even give you contacts of some pro teams.

Should be a good start! Trillium offers wonderful schools. What are you driving?
I drive a 1987 325is. What kind of safety items should I be looking out for?
I went to a pretty fast track in the west end, I think it's called Toronto Morsports Park with my buddy last year in my moms Mazda.

And you do? That's why I ask on this forum. Is this a picture of your cars? Do you race them or just make smart remarks?

I think you may be getting a little ahead of yourself.

I'm not sure if you have past experience driving other cars on the track, or this is your first, but I highly suggest you check the car over a little more thoroughly then just taking it up to 180km/hr and assuming its ok since you did not die.

I think taking a Trillium school would be a good start either way. They will point you in the right direction. Iím sure there will be a few other E30ís there to check out also.
Thanks, I will look into the school. Not trying to be a smart ass, but what can they teach me that I don't already know? I want to go racing against other cars.

I came here to learn and ask. Looks like people that know something, unlike you, are happy to answer my questions, even though they may be stupid. Looks like you're a joke buddy.

CASC is Canadian Association of Spiritual Care. They offer meditation groups that help boost your mind and soul to the driving level of pros. Thats how you can leapfrog all the amateur racing and go straight to the big leagues!

I don't know you, I didn't come here and started calling you names.
I came here to ask and learn... looks like i made a mistake. I guess you know everything... doesn't look like it from your picture, looks like you forgot where the turn is and need your boyfriend in the passenger set to tell you.
