    I had hoped for this as well. We originally couldn't get Monday, because the facility was rented. Now, however, the facility isn't rented for a few days, so they are locking it up for the week.

    The access road (Wilson Farm road) often has vehicles parked on it waiting for the track to open.

    The closest truck stop is in Arnprior, about 40km away (towards Ottawa) http://www.antrimwesternstar.com/

    The local gas station (Mumford's) has a pretty big parking lot, as does Murphy's Landing (where the banquet will be). However, they may take a dim view of people parking.

      This is the Labour Day weekend, the campgrounds will still be full on Sunday night.
      Check with the local Campground in Calabogie, Fawnridge, maybe there is room for one night. (613 752 2066)

      Scott, if all fails, you could park for the night in my driveway (25 min from track).

        Holy crap! I didn't realize you were THAT close to Calabogie, Klaus?! I guess this is how people feel when I tell them I'm only ~20 - 25 minutes from Mosport?

          Thanks Klaus, I knew lending you that power cord would pay off! We are bringing both the camper and the hauler(44') so I don't want to try to get in to some provincal park after dark. Making the wife pull the camper which she doesn't like doing, so hoped to travel during daylight, so how big is your driveway??? Scott Tapley #78

            25 minutes from Calabogie! 20 minutes from Mosport! This is just too much! Please don't post how close to the track you live. Causes too much hardship for those of us who live hours away!

            You guys warm up the track for me! I'll be joining you on Saturday and Sunday.

              This makes me ~ 3 1/2 hours away from Mosport and you probably 4 hours away from Calabogie .... and I have been more often to Mosport this year than at Calabogie ..

              Scott, my driveway is big enough to park your rig and camper, the tricky part is getting it into the driveway, as it is not straight forward from the road. Tricky, but doable.

                As a last resort there's always the gravel pit parking area at the track as I don't remember any gates there.
