You say you want lapping?

Good news for those in search of Lapping Day opportunities,  Shannonville has just announced their schedule for 2017.  Oh, and in case you’re wondering why the Club isn’t offering any such events themselves, here’s the cost of renting the Track:

So until the coffers are over-flowing, we’ll have to content ourselves with the offerings of others.  The cost for each session is $160 if paid in advance or $200 at the gate.  Shannonville will also be offering its Brack Driving Concepts Courses on these days too.  This program has to be booked one week in advance and costs $300 plus HST for the day.  You can find out more about both of these opportunities at SMP.

The results are in!

Earlier in the Year, St LAC members — past and present — were asked to let us know what’s important to them.  Thanks to the input (so far as the survey is still open) your Executive can zero-in that much better on what the Big Picture should be.

The results:

Where do you call home?

Additional comments:

I like to keep things simple, fun, cheap and laissez faire. I don’t mind pitching in with fees, etc, but I can’t really give up a whole heap of time. 

I really appreciate the effort that you guys have gone to. 

Thanks for being great!

Regarding #9, when you say race, I think you mean wheel to wheel road racing which is something I’d like to do but is not in the cards for me right now. I’m happy to participate in autocross and lapping events in my car and maybe time attack down the road.
I predicted the results would indicate an aging group who still like to participate and, as such, will happily pay to see things happen but were less willing to assist with events — a common observance for clubs of all stripes today thanks to an aging population.  I believe, however, that I may be wrong.  The spirit, it seems, is still willing but not at the same level as yesteryear.  One thing remains strong and that’s the collectivity — the social aspect — remains strong for this group and I’ll drink to that!  — Roger
