Actually, a local UCR member won in the last raffle and the announcement was held up (by PCA) until we could do the reveal at our monthly social. This was reported by Kathleen in a recent Provinz. I don’t know whether the winner took the car or the cash option.
No, the vehicle is NOT delivered in Canada. It is delivered in the US via a dealer and must be imported into Canada, as for any other vehicle. Another UCR member that actually won a 911GTS was Colin Black but he lived in Buffalo and so delivery via the Buffalo dealer was not an issue.
We live in Mississauga and treat DE as a weekend away and have done so for decades. Others prefer to save money on accommodation and meals but live with an early daily awakening for an 07:30 arrival at the track.
The choice is yours.
The college dormitory facility in Oshawa is $80/night and has two bedrooms. Split the cost with a buddy and you are all set with a great deal. You can’t beat the price.
The time line is the same every day. However, we have changed the order of the five run groups this year. You will have a work shift for 1/2 day but will not miss any of your runs.
The End 5:00
Both open face and closed face helmets are acceptable.
Any of the motorcycle shops sell Snell-rated helmets and can order an SA or M rate helmet as can some of our tech centres. BOTH Snall M 2015 and Snell SA 2015 are acceptable. The debate around the difference in specifications has been raging forever.
Don’t buy any helmet without a try-on for fit and comfort. For that reason alone, I would not buy online.
At the September DE event, late Sunday afternoon, Jack Webb was working in Tower. On his way to his last run on track, he observed that our 997 had a flat tire. We got a quick message to Brad at Braidan “Don’t abandon us, please!” We have no spare tire.
Brad had one job on the go in his shop. He came and checked our tire to see if it would hold air but the bead had broken away from the rim. Can it be fixed? What if it can’t?
My two Tower co-workers Jack Webb and Greg Sachs agreed to stay on site until a repair was made or they would take us home (one in each car) or . . .
At 5:00 pm, Greg and Jack helped to shut down Tower operations and put away the equipment. Then, we all awaited the word from Brad, who was traversing the property in his golf cart. He left his son Aden (sp?) with us as hostage. Eventually, Brad returned with the problem tire fixed. No charge. Jack and Greg could now proceed on their way home.
But wait. There is more.
As we drove along county roads to avoid cottage traffic on 401, who pops up in our mirror but Greg. He followed us to make sure that all was well. All the way to Westney and 401, where we joined the cottagers heading home.
