Charity Trackday August 26 at the Mosport DDT

I am helping to put on a charity trackday on Friday August 26th at the Mosport for our friends at Hammerhead Motorsports who once again are competing in the Targa Newfoundland in 2 Miata's and raising money for a few charities.Here is the info on the day.Please do not hesitate to confirm a spot as there are only a few spots left.This day will be conducted the same as our normal days with classroom & qualified instructors for the novices & marshals.

Looking for an opportunity to learn to drive your car fast and network with clients and other professionals? I am involved with a charity high performance driver education event that will be held at the Driver Development Track at Mosport International Raceway on Friday, August 26th.

The cost is $300 per person (with a charitable donation tax receipt to be issued for approximately $100) and includes classroom instruction on the basics, in-car training on the track with experienced instructors (you drive your own car), lunch and lots of track time.

The net proceeds from the event will be split between three charities that Hammerhead Motorsports are raising funds for as we prepare to take another shot at finishing the 2,200km Targa Newfoundland race this September:

Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario (http://www.pogo.ca/)
Young Adult Cancer Canada (http://www.youngadultcancer.ca/)
Autism Society of Newfoundland and Labrador (http://www.autism.nf.net/)

Funds can be EMT'd to my e-mail address listed below. If you would like some more information.Please do not hesitate to contact myself Duncan Johnson

office 905 764 4137
cell 416 432 4617

I think your exhaust gasses would have about the same effect on that chair.
