    I am 90% sure they will switch over to Area 27 from Mission Raceway. 

    They will be doing a scouting tour end of the month.

    Well, if I can get perhaps 10-14 people's commitment, I can take that to Porsche Canada to have them do a "chartered" Performance Driving Tour, which they host a few sessions a year anyway.

    It consists of leaving Vancouver Airport to Whistler overnight, then to a interior resort, Sparkling Hill in Vernon for another night, then heading to Mission Raceway for some track time then back to Vancouver Airport. It will drive through some amazing mountain roads. 

    http://porschedrivingexperiencecanada.ca/en/performance/

    If they decided to use our track, it will probably add another night at Ososyoos after Vernon. 

    Going through Porsche Canada means they will provide all the cars and hospitality involved. 

    Short list:
    1. Whoopsy (our host, he decides guest list and the schedule)
    2. Pentium (Porsche cars preferred, Area 27 it's a must for me)
    3. Gnil (It is only interesting if we drive on Area 27)
    4. DaveGordon
    5. bluelines
    6. Targa Tim (I'm in if it is free, and I can use my own car)
    7. Mithras (Depending on timing I'd be very interested)
    8. ?

    There is no try. Just do.


    Re: Area 27 track

    Depending on dates sounds like a blast.  Add me to the queue.  Just fair warning that I am a complete noob on real performance driving....


    Re: Area 27 track

    Sounds great to me.  I'd like to come, depending on a few variables.

    Re: Area 27 track

    More track update, curbs are being painted right now and asphalt is going down August 10, 5 days ahead of schedule. 

    I am booked to do a music video shoot and a promo video with the 918 on the track around the 24th or so.

    Oh, and I have officially approached Porsche Canada to have them incorporate our track for their Performance Driving Tour Vancouver, and had asked for a private session for Rennteam. indecision

    Re: Area 27 track

    I don't have a lot of experience building tracks, but wouldn't it make more sense to paint the curbs after the asphalt is put down?


    Re: Area 27 track

    hot asphalt is easier to clean up after than road paint.

    Re: Area 27 track

    True. Actually, I suppose it's like painting the baseboard before laying the carpet.

    Don't have anything more recent, but this is from like 2 weeks ago when they start doing the curbs.
