Dr Chuck hits Canadian Tire Motorsports Park formerly known as Mosport International

So I finally bit the bullet and did a track day at Mosport International Raceway (or CT Motorsports Park at Mosport as it is currently known). I had Robin Buck, NASCAR Canada Team owner and driver riding shotgun with me all day to teach me how to drive properly. I had a blast. Thanks to the gang at Engineered Automotive and Robin for a great day! Here are the pics!

Pics were taken by Lucas Scarfone. I would say he is an up and coming photographer but judging by the amount of work that he is doing these days, I would say he is quite well established. Thanks for the great pics Lucas!





















I will be back at Mosport very soon! Maybe next year, I will make the pilgrimage to Watkins Glen. So many other great facilities to check out too; VIR, Road Atlanta, Mid Ohio, Road America, Infineon, Laguna Seca...

Lookin' good. I like the track wheels.

Seriously? Canadian Tire Motorsports Park? What a shame--next thing you know, Watkins Glen will become Lysol Tub & Tile Cleaner Motorsports Park, or 2000 Flushes Speedway...

It's like crack. Get a hit, and you're hooked.

That looks like it was a kick in the pants.

Really? The tires are pretty flush with the fenders. The rears are 18x10 ET25IIRC and the tires are 285 35R18s. The fronts are 18x9.5 ET25 with 275 35R18s.

My RACs are 19x10r ET22 (effectively putting a 3mm spacer on the rear) with 295 30R19s and they rub.

Nomo spacers for me unless I occasionally run my 220Ms on the street with stock sized PS2s (no spacers if I run the 220s on wet track days).
