To quote the inimitable Scott Tracey: ” Boys, I think we’re in business!”
Hi Everyone, so great news today as SMP is opening in June which means we’ll be able to host our first lapping evening scheduled for June 25th. We are also in the process of confirming a second evening event in July to make up for the loss of the May date scheduled next week. So the second date will be the evening of July 16th.
I hope everyone has been keeping well. Please be aware we will be applying common sense and social distancing rules to the events. Its important we put our safety on track on par with our health safety in the paddock as it may be a little awkward logistically to host the events but we’ll send out some basic rules as a follow up email closer to the date in June. St Lac had planned to offer the use of club helmets but due to Covid restrictions these helmets will not be available for use so please ensure your supply your own. As a reminder they can be DOT or better from 2010 and up… so inexpensive helmets are allowed. Additionally we will not be able to provide in car ride along coaching to new drivers, however we don’t want this to be a deterrent and will ensure that any new track drivers needs are met. I would ask that everyone try and be on time for the first event as the registration forms, self tech forms and waivers may take a little longer to process than normal. So far Eastern Ontario has been let off lightly with viral cases but we want to ensure we comply with Shannoville’s rule set ( email sent but available below) and not to become a statistic ourselves.
Speaking for myself I have been procrastinating when it comes to cars but I’m glad i have a reason now to get off my butt and work on the race car. I hope the rest of you are looking forward as much as i am to clearing out the driving line cobwebs and i look forward to seeing you all soon – all the best DC
