2008 3rd Touge.ca Dunnville Autodrome Track day May 18th

Hello all NSX drivers,

We're starting to build a list for the track day signup on the 18th of May.
We have the track Sunday evening from 4:00pm - 8:00 pm

A little background -

The Dunville Circuit is one of the safest tracks you can learn on. It's not very fast (save for the around 1/4 mile back straight) and very technical. It's also very fun and you'll spend the whole day mastering your line, and there are some pretty good photo ops.

This is how it will work, for those not familiar with our track days. We're limiting this track day to about 30 cars since we have 4 hours lapping time instead of 3. This gives you plenty of time and room on the track while keeping the crowd down.

We usually have a briefing prior to getting out on the track, followed by a few warm up laps, then lapping for the rest of the day. "Lapping" refers to just that, doing laps. Passing is STRICTLY prohibited except on the back straight, and only when the person in front of you has allowed you by by signaling you to pass. We reserve all rights to kick people off the track that are driving dangerously and/or aren't listening to track marshalls.
For those that have never been to the track, we encourage you to try it out, even if you're still on stock tires (they'll suck, and burn up quick, but it's still fun)

(if you have helmets, it won't hurt to bring them up). If you don't have one, you can rent one at the track for $10.

Guys, from reading this post this is not a day for "Beginners" and not sanctioned by the Club.

The Hanson School, is a School, which means, in most cases, your car is actually covered by your insurance policy while on the track.

Additionally, I, and the Club, DO NOT recommend track days WITHOUT HELMETS - or even mixed environments (some people have 'em some don't.)

Helmets are an important safety device and should be worn, if you'd wear one skiing or on a bike, why wouldn't you wear one in a car, at speed, on a track?

If you are track-curious, please learn at a formal school that features:

1) Class Room Instruction by professionals - believe it or not, you can get better at it by knowing what you're doing and asking questions - hard to do that IN the car while you're driving.

2) Segregated Run Groups - ie. beginners together, Intermediates together, etc. high closing speeds and spinning beginners are not a good combo

3) Full time in-car instruction - I know you're an awesome driver and could beat Senna himself around any track, but I'm sure you have bad habits that you will either reinforce or "cure" - don't reinforce stupidity, thats the basis for most crashes you hear about, someone THINKS they're great and has little instruction since they are so sure they don't need it. People rarely crash with a qualified instructor in the car.

If you're already an experienced track driver, do what you want,
