    Re: Area 27 track

    Oh and for those that are interested, the track pavement itself is 40ft wide, just over 12m. 

    I was wrong earlier about the elevation changes for the hill up to turn 7, 45 ft is the correct number. The earlier number, 20m, 66ft is the total elevation changes from the highest point to the lowest point on the track.

    Re: Area 27 track

    Well I came back today, but took a different route as I need to detour to my Whistler house.

    That was a good thing, I spent 5 hrs in driving heaven, drove roads that I never been on.

    IMG_7471.JPG

    The back roads were practically empty, on one stretch of 90km of the back road, for the whole duration I never saw a car from the other side and not even half a car on my side. The roads took me up a mountain pass before coming back down to Whistler, hence the snow on the last pics.

    This is how the F12 ended up after being driven hard for close to 6 hrs.

    That one picture with the rolling hills and straightaway is sort of the longest straight road for the whole trip, perhaps 3km long. The rest is mountain twistiesSmiley, switch backs, left right combos around bends, uphill curves, down hill curves, all sort of angles Smiley So actually wasn't too fast haha.

    Truth is by the time I got to Whistler, my arms were tired from turning the steering wheel so muchSmiley It was heaven indeed for drivers. 

    When I enter and exit towns, I see other cars, and but the backroads are empty, an odd passenger car or a transport truck here and there.

    The big GT F12 handles all of it with ease, I didn't wish I was in any other car, not even the Speciale or the GT3RS. Some sections were quite bumpy so the stiffer suspension would have been punishing but the bumpy road setting on the F12 is perfect! About the only wish I had was a bigger gas tank on the F12 so I don;t have to stop as often for gas.

    Traffic in Vancouver is bad, but once out of the city and into other parts of the interior of the province, there are many many hidden gems like these roads, most people travel on the new straighter wider provincial highways so these back roads are seldom travelled now.

    Re: Area 27 track

    woow, that sounds like a fun trip.

    Here speeding is not the problem, youcan do it with almost no problems if you know how to move, but there is a dream to have a road without cars!!!!!!

    the f12 must be mindblowing on those roads...

    Looks amazing.

    Is that a go-kart track I spy in the drawing?


    Re: Area 27 track

    Yes, we will have a go-kart track 1/4 scale to the big track too.

    These are the only 4 tracks west of Ontario. 

    The Island Motorsport Circuit is just about the size of our go kart track. 

    They just opened and Audi hosted a R8 launch there.

    Here is the video:

    Re: Area 27 track

    You guys really needed the new track - those others are pretty small.  Our local track is 2.55 miles and feels like a karting track compared to the better Euro tracks (particularly NBR).

    That sounds like a great track Nick.  How close to your house?

    The scaled down kart track is a very cool idea.  Will the elevation changes be scaled as well?

    I live about 420km away from the track, so 260miles or so. It's about a 4hr drive through empty 2 lane highway up an down the mountain with no cops Smiley

    The elevation changes for the kart track is still on the plans, just so the kart track won't be a flat piece of tarmac.

    Once the track is opened Smiley

    Because of the track's location, it is situated in a desert, there will be far and few rainy days nor snow if at all, it will be open pretty much year round.

    If there is enough interest for a RT meet there, it will not be difficult to organize something :) Just the drive alone from Vancouver to the track will leave many breathless. 

    I am gonna get the Porsche 918 Spyder Circle team to do a site visit, as they are interested in hosting events there, together I will also invite Porsche Canada and very likely they will plan regular Porsche Performance Driving Tours around it, which will be open to all customers.

    Re: Area 27 track

    Excellent! That means you can hold races such as the Blancpain Endurance Series (GT3)

    http://www.blancpain-gt-series.com/news?key=241


    Re: Area 27 track

    Hosting races has always been in the plans.

    Ferrari has shown interest that they might host the Ferrari Challenge race there.

    Porsche is also interested in including the track for their Ultra 94 GT3 Cup Challenge Canada.

    Re: Area 27 track

    Interesting - does hosting races not introduce a whole new layer of complexity and logistics? Spectator facilities, stands, parking, etc, etc?
