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.
