June 27th 2013 – Longhill Track Day
This was our first event of 2013 and with the sun shining all afternoon for our on-track and autocross adventures, the day was an absolute success! With 8 guests joining in on the fun, we invaded Calabogie Motorsports Park for a day sure to be imprinted on our memories for a long time. After a classroom working lunch session where the drivers learned all about car control, we hit the track for 4 hours of pure adrenaline. Some of our guests also decided to do some hot laps in the passenger seat of Jim Harrison’s #49 Porsche race car… All seemed to enjoy it, but a few walked away with shaky knees… When off track, we all participated in an autocross competition, and with everyone driving the same car, this was all about driver skill. Top Autocross Honours went to Dan Redmond of Smith and Andersen with a time of 39.2 seconds, followed by Danny Doiron of BPA with a 39.6 seconds, while Georges Maamari from BPA took third position with a 39.7 second. Georges actually had the best time of the day with a 34.7 time, however, he missed half the course…
We finished off the day with a BBQ, some refreshments, and great conversation! We hope to see everyone out there again!
