Okay boys & girls. This is happening!!!
Our 2019 Track Day has been scheduled for Wednesday the 28th of August at Area27 - a private race track/country club facility just up the hill from our shop (http://www.area27.ca) This is going to be a fun and laid back day with lots of track time available for all. Fully catered lunch & hospitality area and an optional Winemaker's dinner in the evening. We are able to provide special rates on accommodation and other activities surrounding the track date for things such as Wine Tasting/Touring, Golf and even Spa Days for anyone who is coming along with you and might not want to partake in on-track activities.
The groups will be split between those who hold a race license or who have completed a suitable driver's school or training, and those who are new or less experienced. For the beginner & intermediate groups, the morning sessions will include a 'chalk talk' from our instructor explaining some basic principles including braking, cornering and track etiquette, followed by progressively quicker 'follow the leader' sessions to get you up to speed. In the afternoon, we expect to have everyone open lapping in their respective groups. We expect a mix of Astons, Mclarens, Jags, Audis & Lambos, reflective of our customer base. We are located in a very nice part of the world, with over 400 wineries in the valley and a warm, dry climate. It would be very easy to combine with a short driving holiday and some wine touring.
The cost is $1000 CAD (around $750USD) for the full day with a catered lunch. Accommodation recommended at https://www.watermarkbeachresort.com/ and https://spiritridge.hyatt.com/en/hotel/home.html about 15 minutes South from the track.
Hope to see some of you out there!
