BOWMANVILLE, ON (June 23, 2015) – The day started with an easy drive to Canadian Tire Motorsports Park. Castrol Canada Track Day staff were on hand to receive us and the started with an advanced driver 101 session with the experts from Driveteq. I thought there was not much to learn, especially since I have been driving for a long time, but was I wrong! The session was a complete eye-opener.
After our theory session, we were off the the learning track with the instructors who took us through driving between cones, in circles on a wet surface and braking techniques. We then drove to the main track where we got to try out our newly learnt skills. It is an incredible experience to drive on this track!
I also got to ride in the Audi R8 with Chris Green, the Porsche GT3 Champion – WOW – a totally different experience being in a car hurtling along at 240kph!
