GTA: Mosport DDT Autocross/Lapping $125.00 - Sunday Nov 20th

Run by BMWCCA-Trillium Chapter. We will be running a Solo 1 (on racetrack rather than Solo 2 in a parking lot) event on the Mosport DDT.

Where: 3233 Concession rd. 10, Bowmanville ON. GPS coordinates 44.055472,
- 78.678482
When entering the GPS coordinates enter city as Clarington, not Bowmanville.

When: Sunday November, 20th (8:00am-5:00pm). It is imperative that all participants arrive before 8:00am as their will be a mandatory safety and driver meeting for all participants! Please arrive early to allow sufficient time to prepare your car for the event and so on.

Cost: $100.00 incl. HST for members, $125.00 incl. HST for non-members. Lunch and drinks will be included as the cafeteria will not be open. Bring snacks for later in case you get the munchies. Registration will be on-line via our website. It will be available soon. As an added bonus, all participants will be invited to remain after the last timed run has completed to take part in open lapping until 5pm when the track shuts down. Anyone not paying due diligence to rules set forth at the drivers meeting will be expelled from the event with no refund.

All of the same rules apply as the Solo 2 events with some minor changes. Helmets are mandatory (loaner available). There will be cones on track creating obstacles. Each cone/gate that gets hit will add a 2 second penalty to your time. If you miss a gate, there will be there a 5 second penalty added to your time as we will be not be able to double back. If you go off track and damage your car there is no insurance coverage as this is a competition event. If you damage property at Mosport you are required to cover the cost of the damages incurred there. There will be an EMS attendant at the track. As this event is taking place in late November please dress and prepare accordingly for the environment. Remember, there is no such thing as bad weather for a track day, just inappropriate attire!

If you are not interested in participating but are willing and able to volunteer we would greatly appreciate your help. We need marshals to help ensure safety and success of our first Solo 1 event ever! - John Venditti

Who's interested in attending this "winter" event? Doesn't get much cheaper than this for a Mosport event.

Just a quick reminder (since the weather is holding up very nicely for this time of year) there's a BMW Club of Canada Solo1 autocross Mosport DDT this Sunday. Competitors are treated to open-lapping after the event (approx 1pm-5pm). Cost is $125 for non-members. Registration is available here http://trillium-bmwclub.ca/civicrm/e...?id=60&reset=1

This is a great event for beginners, if you ever considered trying out a track event. Morning autocross allows you to do 1 lap of the track alone (no traffic or pressure to go fast) for each timed run. Once you get comfortable with it, the track opens after lunch for open-lapping. Weather is calling for a bomby 14C with slight (40%) chance of showers.
