    Re: Your Home Track?

    SMP for sure...I was de-virginized there and bring my clients there, and have a cottage in Picton, not far from it, close to the Sandbanks...That doesn't mean it's my FAVE...That has to go to Mosport big track...

    Re: Your Home Track?

    Once you get outside of Ontario, only one track is known, and that's Mosport GP. And it has quite a bit of cache in north america. Even people I've met at Road America and VIR want to do Mosport. They are vaguely aware of its rep as a car eater, but they want to give it a crack anyways.

    You didn't put Minden so I had to pick other.

    By that definition, it would make you a "different" kind of virgin...

I somehow got about 30 odd track days in during August, September and October. So while it's the furthest track from my home, I have always felt very comfortable and and have some unique insights into various lines and corners.

    Technically and in fact I have the most laps on Mosport big track.
    I'm curious what the Enzo did around GP. I imagine that it would be sub-1:30. Frankly, if it wasn't, I'd want my money back. The '06 Z06, Porsche GT2, F430, etc are probably all within reach.

    I chose TMP since it's 30 minutes from my house. I think that it also rates fairly close to SMP for technical challenges.

    My absolute favourite is Mosport GP with Watkins Glen a close 2nd.

    DDT also has a sentimental place since it was my first track. I also love it for its quirky small track entertainment.

    Re: Your Home Track?

    Mosport, since I have put more Road Race laps on Mosport than on any other track. Also it is the most challenging and fun of all the tracks I have been on (Watkins Glen, Mt. Tremblent, Montreal GP, Toronto Molson Indy, Trois Rivieres, Waterford Hills, Halifax street course, Halifax Armed forces base, Atlantic Motorsport Park, Limerock, TMP, Dunnville, DDT).

    Also at Mosport I have the most incidents (about 20 ). Hanif you may have a few laps on Shannonville but you are still a virgin.

    By the way Marco did a 1:32 in a street driven Corvette last year at the Solo 1 event.

    I said DDT because of the karting I did there, and I have more laps there than anywhere else in the mustang

    I selected "Other" for Calabogie Mortorsport Park - dang I hope we get to run there next season. :hope smiley But for the time being I'd have to say SMP - as would most Ottawa drivers since it's the closest for lapping evenings.

    I went with SMP for the same reason as Hanif -- I've done thousands of laps there, done the most Solo 1's there, and have learned a lot of how to go fast thru key corners over the years.

    I hope to break 90 seconds there some day in a street car.
    I'm not sure if anyone has ever broken 1:30 in a street car? I've seen Porsche's with top drivers do 1:35. Makes me think. Mosport keeps track of all sorts of records. Wonder what the record is for street legal cars (driven to the track.)

    I'll ask some of the guys I know from the Porsche and Ferrari clubs what they have seen.

    Re: Your Home Track?

    When I started racing I ran vintage motorcycles at Mosport and Shannonville. After running endurance on the bikes at Mosport, I would say it's my "home" track. One day I'll be back in a car. One day..............
