The St Lawrence Automobile Club

Featured

Welcome to the website of the St. Lawrence Automobile Club or as it is better known:  StLAC, (pronounced “Saint Lack”).  The Club calls Kingston, Ontario, Canada home and is the motor sport group to join for any enthusiasts in South Eastern Ontario.

Why Join St LAC?

  • It’s a social thing!  Whether it’s at a regular meeting or some other event you’ll meet fellow car nuts who are more than happy to share stories and more.
  • Want to try your hand at racing? We’re more than happy to help and who knows — we might even be able let you try a fully-kitted car.
  • Not sure how to install your new Flux Capacitor?  We might just be able to help.

T-cRX Honda work and play party

Thanks to Danby, Rob and Roger for their dedication and hard work, our club car is progressing nicely.  Not wanting to have all the fun (Danby has put in more than 70 hours so far) we’re hoping members will join us for round III on Saturday, August 24th, 09h30 at the home (657 Simmons Road, Odessa) of Danby Crowder.  Lunch will be provided.

Please RSVP by Thursday, August 22nd.

Decisions, decisions, decisions

We often find ourselves looking for that perfect mode of transportation for the remaining teenage daughter in the home.  Sometimes this leads to thoughts about getting something for ourselves; after all, the Feds are still giving out rebates for electric vehicles.  Then we found this Canadian product:  The BoomerBuggy.  The Model X will only set you back $7000 Cdn.

Then there’s a Curtiss electric motorcycle that tops 200 horsepower:

The Zeus design pays tribute to the Curtiss V8 bike.

The price?  $79k American.  Should we let her be limited to 13kmh or 200kmh???  Decisions, decisions, decisions.

Could you finish nine seconds behind Kyle Busch of NASCAR fame?

Could you finish nine seconds behind Kyle Busch of NASCAR fame?  Dan Corcoran can.  His time in the first practice round was just -9.124 seconds off the pace.  Apparently he was not satisfied with that.  The final practice run was -1.072 seconds behind.  While this St LAC member is no stranger to auto racing, it takes a special kind of driver to take part in a NASCAR Xfinity series event.  After all, you’re competing with drivers like AJ Allmendinger, Tyler Reddick, Jeffrey Earnhardt, Tony Stewart and, of course, Kurt and Kyle Busch.

Watkins Glen was the site of the July 29th stop in the series.   Contested over 82 laps on the 2.45-mile (3.94 km) road course, it was the 20th race of the 2019 NASCAR Xfinity Series season.The Zippo 200 is one of 33 races in the schedule which runs from February to November.  The initial Entry list had no driver listed for the No. 74 Mike Harmon Racing Chevrolet.  Enter Dan Corcoran.
