More interested in trying to sign series events (which is great as a spectator and enthusiast), but cutting back on days open to guys like us.

The new track in Fort Erie may be the same way, but hopefully they will have more of a Calabogie style atmosphere and fill the void for us lappers.
I do hope it gets built but like all the new facilities that are being built,they are not for the grassroot enthusiast.Mosport has raised the prices once again next year along with mandatory rental of the new facilities which just might drive some the track rentals elsewhere due the economics of running track days and what people will pay to be involved.Motorsport of any sort has never been inexpensive and it looks like even less so as time goes on.
