I know all the dates and groups involved with the GP track, they are all listed on Mosport's website calendar. My questions was if anyone had experience with Apex specifically, which has now evolved into any other recomendations for other groups that run quality events.

For the groups you mentioned, have you been to their events at Mosport, and if so were they worth it?

I've only been to a BMW Toronto day and it was well run, thinking of participating on May 22. I did two trillium schools last year.

A few friends of mine attend the Kensai days and it seems alright, but I haven't been to any yet, I was hoping to check it out this year.

CASC is probably good cause they are well known, probably alot of the same instructors, but again i haven't been to or participated in any of their events.

If you'd like to correct more 'title errors', there's tons more in the BMW Club of Canada forum on here

Like what? Don't start something again that you can't finish! You want to stir the pot........Go ahead. I want to hear it.

Stir what pot? You are the one trying to bait me out with the instigating posts. I do find it funny how online in front of the 'forum' you are willing to argue until your fingers fall off, yet you can't seem to answer my PMs, phone calls, or even talk to me in person (like on the weekend) so we can sort out whatever beef you decided to concoct in your head about me.

I don't bait you out with instigating posts, you said something false. I corrected. You are the first person on this forum to point something out if it is false. This is a fact. So bait I did not. However, when you get bum hurt from making a mistake as I pointed out in the previous post, you then turn childish and point out a mistake that one of our hardest working volunteers made, and it was a typo at that, not a factual error. I don't answer your pms or phone calls or talk to you in person...........hmmmm maybe that's because I have a full time job, I have a part time job on top of that, I have a volunteer position within a car club, I am a father of two, and a husband, trying whatever I can to make ends meet at home and have a little fun with my car hobby only to be brought down with pessimism amongst other things. Need I say more? Oh and by the way, I wanted to chat with you on the weekend but as usual, your timing couldn't have been worse, (you know that) I was dealing with an issue with a student, while giving a tour of a visitor, and I was saddled with two students as we were short instructors and supervising the skidpad exercises. At what point would have been a good time to talk to you??? I don't think you realize what others around you do, and what they give up out of their own lives to do it. There are no ulterior motives, just trying to make sure everyone has a great time at a premiere event.

"My questions was if anyone had experience with Apex specifically, "

To answer your original question, I've been to 2 events organized by Dez (service advisor at BMW Toronto). Great time if a bit pricey for a single day. It's $375-400 for the day, with a catered lunch, water and pop on hand.

Gerry and the Apex team offer instruction all day. Usually 2-3 groups based on experience. Passing allowed on straights. by mid afternoon many attendees leave so things speed up. Events are mostly bmw, with a few porsches, audis, Zo6, etc.

Cool group, both times I ran my 73 Dodge challenger, and everyone loved it. In the drivers briefing, Gerry goes "most of you have cars with a neutral weight balance, well, except you (looking right at me)

I know Mercedes Toronto runs something similar, as does Engineered Automotive...

Thanks for that reply, it is helpful and informative. I have registered for an Apex event on May 23rd. From what I am getting on here they a re a good group and that is what I really wanted to know. Didn't want to waste my money.

I see you are also driving an M5, hopefully we will see you out some time.
