All right people, this is the most important post of 2013. The Calabogie CMP Lapping Calendar has been announced! Let's figure out what days people are interested in going and make this happen! I'm hoping to go at least 3 times this year. If you've tracked and never been to CMP, you are missing out huge - this is the best track in Canada, period.

I'm in for 3 times for sure. A spring, mid-summer, and fall date might be nice. Can you post other events planned such as Watkins Glen so that we can ensure no overlap and a bit of space between events?

Is your track day website still alive, and if so, does it have all the current events on the calendar?

I should be good for 2 events and CMP as long as they not too close to the Glen dates. The wife is already worried about track season, LOL.

We thinking of a Mid Ohio event this year too?
I think I am doing a VIR event in August, when I have details, Ill post up.

Good Stuff! I'm in for at least 3, potentially 1-2 more. Definitely want to try out Mike's infamous routes - though between the Glenn and Mosport, my vacation day are already starting to get skewed towards track days so may have to stick to the boring friday night drive up.

You tell us about mid-ohio. Your wife never lets you out to play.

Dude. You do more work day on a track day than I do sitting my office all day! If you're going to call it a vacation day, don't bring your laptop! And if you do, just tell them you're telecommuting!

He probably does twice as many track days as he has vacation days, so that's probably the reason

Your gig is up, i know you are not really working when you are at the track, you are just doing complex calculations to determine whether you want to take a short position on your tires and brake pads or hedge for the next track day(s). Classic example of options, swaps and futures for lapping day commodities management.

Hah - If it isn't a 12 hour work day, its a vacation day...
But yes, I'm totally using the telecommuting argument; so the 12 or so days I've got booked off will be more like 6, which means I can budget in a few more track days/drives up to calabogie.

Ah crap, you're on to me... I'll have to accelerate my plans for the Track Day Subprime CDO Arbitrage Fund (backed by tires and brake pads) - expect strong investor demand and AAA credit ratings so get your orders in now!

Is Joe organizing his usual 2 days at Mosport this year?? Considering how much single days are there, his event is always a bargain.

Already registered for both days at the Glen with them.
