If you mean anti roll cage/bars. No you do not need a rollcage, but if you do have one DOT helmet is required.
Helmet is not required but highly recommended, I am bringing one.
All skill level welcome especially to newbies, coz im newbie too . Good time to get some practices on cornering/racing lines.
I just didnt catch one thing.
If i have a roll cage, helmet IS required.
If i Don't have a roll cage, helmet IS NOT required, correct?

Now, if the price is in the 40$ range, and helmet isn't required(i dont have one), and im not working (i dont work friday evenings), then i should be very interested in coming(as long as my car is in good order ofcourse).

Yes you are correct. Remember the lapping will start at 5:30-6:00, you will have to leave toronto before 3:00 because of the traffic. I will skip the school that day, grab some sleep and prep the car.

I am out of school after february for 7 months, so that shouldnt be a problem. As time gets closer, and u post an exact date, i will make sure i leave that day free. As for now keep me in mind as a 80% that i will be attending.
Another issue i wanna address, as a newbie, im not planning on pushing my car/or my self to its limits, will that create a problem in any way, will i feel out of place, will i have ppl cusing me off? Just some feedback. I don't want to be surrounded by pro's, if u know what i mean. In any case, im definitely looking forward to hopefuly attending.

There will be some drivers are faster than you, you are allowed to drive any speed as you will, as long as you do not block other people from passing you. It will be fun and people are friendly, relax.

You'll have place to park the truck and the trailer. Unless your car is in really bad shape, but then you should not even bring it to the track, I think it will be fine....

Why do you want blow your motor?....hmm...you hate ur car...
Towing it to shannonville could be pretty expensive, what truck is that? I have a GMC Savana 2500, from Scarborough to Shannonville is about 450kms, so 60 dollars of gas....plus rentting a trailer.
