A special note of thanks to Jordan Southen for giving me the chance to get back out on the track after a long hiatus. His Encini was beyond amazing. The effort and detail that went into its setup will serve as a benchmark for me with future endeavours. Thanks, Jordan!
Okay, I’m an idiot. So, mark September 17th on your calendar (if you already haven’t done so) as the real last night of St. Lapping. Your editor regrets the confusion.
And, hey, we get mail! From Eric Stewart in Ottawa comes this:
Re.: St. LAP (love that name!) of the season.
I had a wonderful time last night, and so did Chris. You guys strike a good balance of grassroots hominess and safety-mindedness. Lots of interesting people to socially-distant chat with! Funny what Chris said afterwards. He said that as a driver, you’re always busy managing the car at full track Shannonville and there’s really not a lot of time to watch the scenery. I hadn’t really thought about that, but it’s true. It’s a challenging track and a jewel. Sometimes we need to put down our shiny toy (Calabogie, I’m looking at you) to pick up other toys. Shannonville is well worth the effort and the drive from Ottawa.
Thanks again for doing this. I’m looking forward to the 17th of September.
Hello S Lac members and lapping pass holders. Firstly, please don’t forget we will be hosting the 4th St Lap evening this Thursday evening on the 27th.. As a reminder registration opens at 5 and the drivers meeting is at 5:15. I was watching the sunset last night so the last session will be running at dusk. As we will be on the Long track again this week we will have ample room to combine both the street car groups and in turn extend the run times slightly in an effort to work with the shortened daylight. If you are rusty on the long track layout please google an in car lap of the course to familiarize yourself if you haven’t run on it yet this year. The weather may again be damp but as we have found over the previous nights the track dries very well if we are just experiencing showers so i hope this doesn’t deter anyone.
