MAXXIS Enduro: Fun and Affordable Endurance Racing!!!

This just in:  Corner2 Incorporated and Maxxis are proud to announce the launch of a new grassroots endurance road racing series: MAXXIS Enduro. This new series will be open for competition starting June 2019 in Ontario.

An amateur-level endurance racing series, MAXXIS Enduro is committed to providing affordable racing for grassroots competitors. The series will be featured on mixed race tracks, including road courses and ovals, for a unique and out of the box racing experience. The endurance format means that a typical race will be time certain, with a three-hour limit. With different categories based on lap time, competitors will be seeking supremacy in their own classes.

More information about Maxxis Enduro can be found at www.maxxisenduro.ca and on our Facebook page. The latter doesn’t seem to exist yet but it seems that there will be updates posted at https://www.facebook.com/groups/183257002081427/

Who’s up for a St LAC team?!  By the way, there’s a $300 discount if you register at Motorama 2019.

April General Meeting

It was a well-attended and productive meeting at the home of Danby Crowder yesterday as things begin to fall in place for another automotive season.

Our annual Regional AutoSlalom events now presented by Last Chance Auto-restoration has a long-list of ‘must dos’ and there was no shortage of volunteers.  What a lovely club.

Much time was dedicated to what makes a club a must to join and it was decided that social events topped the list.  As a result, St LAC will direct a great deal of attention to being part of the greater Kingston car culture.  Members can look forward to Cars ‘n’ Coffee events, making appearances at the many car cruise activities in the area and more.  Watch this space.

Club Event and Social: Breakfast & Tour of Last Chance Auto Restoration

A bright, sunny day awaited the faithful who took part in Sunday, March 24th’s first must-do and see event of the season: Eats and Treats

It all started with a breakfast at Odessa’s Jiffy Grill where they may not know your name but they never forget what you had the last time you were there.

Our second stop was a scenic drive to visit one of Eastern Ontario’s best kept secrets in the automotive restoration world — Last Chance Auto.  This gem has been servicing collector cars from Canada and the United States for decades now and boasts a palmares that you have to see to believe.  If you do not wish to take my word for it please visit:

Our group was treated to stories and samples of how it gets done when no one else wants to restore your dream car.  No details are spared.  Who knew that a concours car would include the paint marks left by the part installer in the factory or that the judges tell you if your car passes the authenticity test but not a why or where if it doesn’t.

Our hosts — John and Julia Nizman served coffee and cookies to the St LAC faithful some of whom have promised to return for car work, powder-coating and more.

Thanks to Danby for making this happen and Burl who provided the pictures.

This Just Out

It’s come to your website sometime-guru’s attention that only a single column of stlac.ca is showing up on mobile devices.  Until I figure it out, the solution is to access the pull down menu  if you’re using an Android device and select Request Desktop Site

As for going about this with an iPhone, I wouldn’t know.  All the cool kids have Google phones.
