Karting: 2023 ST LAC Arrive and Drive event

Some 16 ST LAC members enjoyed a day of karting and sunshine recently. When asked about their experience we got this:

‘I may have found a new sport!’
‘ST LAC is amazing.  Thanks to the exec for making this happen!’
‘I never could have imagined how much fun this could be.’
‘The only thing that could have made this better was to have Roger C with us today.’

The proof:

2023 Drive Fest – Volunteers needed!

DRIVE FEST Sep 8 – 10 at CTMP

Drive Fest 2023 – We are putting the final plans together for Drive Fest next weekend and we can use a few more volunteers. Our display will include all 5 Divisions of CASC-OR: Autoslalom, Ice Racing, Karting, Road Racing, and Time Attack. Ideally we’ll have one person from each Division “on duty” at all times. To do this we’ll need 6 volunteers from each discipline. Have you got time to help out? We are hoping people will work half the day and then spend the remainder checking out the rest of the event. Free admission for all volunteers and a T-shirt. We have new banners and a much bigger space this year – come and help us out.

Our display is being organized by ST LAC’s own Pat Cyr – if you can help contact Pat directly for more details

For those of you that simply want to attend the event as spectators, CASC-OR has a discount code to save on the admission fee. BUY TICKETS HERE and use the discount code CASC20.

Gran Turismo: Cineplex August 25th

Gran Turismo is based on the unbelievable true story of a team of unlikely underdogs – a struggling working-class gamer (Archie Madekwe), a failed former racecar driver (David Harbour), and an idealistic motorsport executive (Orlando Bloom). Together, they risk it all to take on the most elite sport in the world. Gran Turismo is an inspiring, thrilling, and action-packed story that proves that nothing is impossible when you’re fueled from within. 

Starting August 25th at Cineplex.

2023 August Update

Happy August everyone. It has been a few months since we sent the last broadcast message so the time seemed right for an update…

DRIVE FEST Sep 8 – 10 at CTMP

CASC-OR Board Positions

There are quite a few CASC-OR Board positions up for election this year. If you are interested in getting more involved please either contact a current Board member, or feel free to reach out to me directly.

Treasurer – Anne McCallum has agreed to stay on for another term, but will be pleased if someone else would like to “give it a try”.

Vice President – the Vice President’s role is changing. I’d like someone in the position that is ready, willing and able to take over should the President (me) need to reduce their time commitment.

Division Directors for Race, Autoslalom, and Karting are available. The existing Directors have served multiple terms and do not intend to stay on. Continue reading

Postponed: CRX Build

Hi all,

First off I’d like to thank everyone who made it out to volunteer, or race, at last weekends Peter Jackson VARAC races. It was a great turn out with great weather and great racing.

We are going to postpone the next CRX Build Party that was to be held this coming Sunday. We will now shoot for the following Sunday, August 20.

Finally, Danby has contacted the go-kart track in Smith Falls. It is looking more promising, however we are still awaiting for available dates. Once we have more information we will reach out to get that ball rolling.
