Seriously though, I'm super jealous of your trip - it must have been a total blast!
LOL, you fool.

There was actually a Porsche event before the open lapping and I have never seen so many GT3s, GT3 RS, and GT3 RS 4.0 anywhere else in my life. We actually didn't take too many pics since there was 4 of us, and two cars, plus we got there a little late. There was only 2 hours of open lapping, so we got to business.

Do we have a count of how many are confirmed going to this event? Only 2 weeks to go...

If anyone needs accommodations let me know, I have two suites booked at the Highlands and only myself and one other staying there so far. I will cancel the second suite unless I get more people.

We've got 7 people who are confirmed (i.e paid) so if you and AB and one more person confirm, we've got our 10. I will send emails tomorrow to those who haven't confirmed yet. To see the current confirmed list go to http://www.gruppe991.com/index.php/t...ptember-22-23/

So, did you get spanked so hard by all the Porsches at the 'ring that you're going to bail on Calabogie, or are you going to man up?

Here is the updated attendance list. If you are on this list, you are confirmed for Calabogie. We've got a couple stragglers we're waiting but otherwise, we're good!


1. Shizzle - Sat, Advanced - 911 - Confirmed
2. Gearhead999s. - Sat-Sun, Advanced - M3 - Confirmed
3. Jaypod - Sat, Advanced - M3 - Confirmed
4. M.H. - Sat, Advanced - XJRS - Confirmed
5. Mike_M3 - Sat, Intermediate - M3 - Confirmed
6. Ahsanh - Sat-Sun, Intermediate - M3 - Confirmed
7. ALM3 - Sat, Advanced - M3 - Confirmed
8. G.G. - Sat-Sun, Intermediate - 911 - Confirmed
9. F.M. - Sat-Sun, Intermediate - Cayman - Confirmed
10. W.I. - Sat, Beginner - Civic - Confirmed

I will most likely run both days, but i'm debating hitting Mosport on the 24th. That 1:47 lap time is just way too high.

Oh, and i'm travelling all over the country this week so I will be hard to get a hold of by phone. Email will be the best way to get a hold of me this week.

Looking forward to it.

Dont get so hung up on the time. Once you get a little more seat time in the car you will be flying. If you saw the video I posted I am a little faster and I am not really pushing the car very hard and have a student in the car. I can easily take off a few seconds by breaking later and harder, not lifting so early and carrying more speed through the corners.

Besides, just have some fun. No prizes for lap times.

I hear what you're saying. I just feel I left a lot on the table last time at Mosport. Watching my video I can see a lot of simple things to fix that would make my laps technically better (and would ultimately bring my lap time down). The problem with watching videos is you can easily see your mistakes.

On another note, we've got our 10 people confirmed and paid. All the information has been sent to CMP, so i'm just waiting to get everyone their event tickets.

You got a lot to say these day Mr. Pointby. For the record only a GT3 and a speced out Megane passed me, and I let a M5 by but he was holding me up actually. It was freaking awesome!!!

Let me know if you end up doing that. I cannot make it to Calabogie, but may make it to Mosport for a short day. I'd rather do Calabogie if I were you, though.

I will be driving up Friday morning, likely leaving Toronto around 10am. Taking the fun and twisty scenic route to Calabogie. Let me know if you want to tag along!

I'll be leaving from Toronto around 12-1PM depending on my meetings. It looks like we're in for a bit of rain on Saturday. According to the forecasts, about 5mm of rain, with rain projected around 1PM and 4PM at Calabogie.... Looks like it might be time for some drifting through Temptation!

Seriously though, turned out to be a great day. Good group of guys and a bunch of nice cars. A certain rental mustang had a bit of an off which was entertaining as there was no damage (just to the wet sod!).

You better get some track time in as Shizzle is starting to fly around the track!

LOL, Shizzle should be taking advantage of all this track time he is getting without me.

I really wanted to make it out to this event. I might actually miss Mosport tomorrow too, work is not being kind to me this month.
