The Z06 and ZR1 are beastly. That aside, the 302 is the better track car compared to the regular C6, but with a little tinkering on the suspension setup, you can make the C6 corner on rails. The Cayman S is obviosuly everyones first choice if the budget permits; but for cost of upkeep and upgrades the vette wins hands down.

Ken for the C6 Grand Coupe! Maybe a C7?

i already did a 360 spin at mosport when i made the mistake of taking my foot off the throttle mid corner.

hope to see you at an event next season. tony does way more track days than me so he would have a better idea of the track days in the surrounding area.
A few track sessions with the Quebec PCA group where they let you in on some of the GT3s dynamics secrets and we wont be able to catch you. I cant hardly wait.

The schedules should be out shortly. Be sure to look for BMW Quebec Club's events.
I actually have done Tremblant many times. Calabogie would be the logical choice, not sure I would go as far as the Glen or Mosport.

Mosport or Shannonville too. They arent that far away. This year I only went twice to LCMT and very early in the season. I was re-acquainting myself with rear wheel dive after so many years of all wheel. Quite a shocker. I spun out 3 times. Not one of my better sessions. But like they say ... any spin you can drive away from is learning opportunity. Baby steps. I'm looking forward to going back and tackling it with renewed zeal.

You should go back to LCMT. There is always something new to learn.

Shannonville was my first ever driving school with the SAAB club. Back then the driving schools were not only about the "track", they had watered down skid pads, slalom courses and braking areas. Same applied to BMW schools. We are talking about early 2000's here. They would teach you how to vary tire pressures to make a FWD drift in the wet, pretty cool stuff. Now, it is all about the track.

I think vanosracing should do Mosport.

And also Watkins Glen. He can bring the whole family to The Glen. Kids will love the sightseeing.

Yea you should! You will save money on the registration and insurance (just keep theft,fire insurance), cux it's a waste if you're paying and not using it. Why feb? I'm gonna do it from dec till Apr/may, depends on the weather plus I'll be in exams period so wont have time.

Just another option to rotate the car in those decreasing radius or sharp turns, bwahaha Make it a strength/weapon, instead of a weakness!

Yeah, it's understandable as it is not easy to be far far away with a young family, although Tony will do everything to convince you to go

That is not correct, as starting this year, BMW QC has skid pad exercises at Tremblant, Woohoo! I was quite disappointed to discover that my nannies were not able to be completely off, even after switching everything off. Either that or I suck big time.
