Hello Everyone!

This summer I have been organizing some lapping events at Shannonville Race Course (near Kingston ON). We have had two events so far with great turnouts running a few of the different track configurations.

I am not here to make any profits, I just want to make our track time
cheaper and thus open our scheduled sessions to anyone who wishes to

Shannonville is a nice safe track to run as there are plenty of run-off areas.
If you want an economical track session at a fun track this is for you.

Here are the details....

Dates: June 6th & 27th, July 4th & 25th, August 1st & 22nd (all Sunday
evenings). The track is booked for 2 hours, I usually run my car on-track for about 1 hour 15-20mins (this various from person to person). We start at 6:30 p.m. till 8:30pm

Cost: Depends on the number of people. We are not looking to make any
profit so we will split the cost however many ways. Usually we have between 10-15 cars. Track total cost is $600 so you do the math. If we have a lot of interest we option in to take the long Pro-Track on occasion (this doubles the cost). No up-front payments, just bring cash to
the track.

Layout: We have the Fabi track reserved. For more
info check

Basic Rules:

Keep in mind that most of us use our cars as daily drivers and we are all
going to drive our cars home. This is a friendly lapping session, not
racing. You can call it "aggressive" chasing not racing. We have had a lot of fun
without any incidents.

There will be no corner workers or emergency response team, so everyone
must drive within their limits. It is not a competition and we all want to
sit down for a beer afterwards.

We are mostly MINIs and BMWs that come out but it is open to all types of cars. We have
a max of 14 cars per session (24 if we do the Pro-Track)

Drop me an email at and let me know which dates you can
attend, and you'll be on the list. This is a great way to meet a bunch of
car nuts like yourself. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any
questions you may have.

Damn it. I'm going to have to wait until next year for this. My car arrives end of September.

I live only 20 minutes from the track. I was just there yesterday for Monday evening lapping time. Not much fun since you have to stop every lap and wait your turn. You cannot really practice on your cornering skills like that.

I'll be interested next year. How many shows up typically? Do I need to bring $100 bills? Limited to BMW/Mini only?
