Successful testing at Calabogie Motorsporsts Park

Testing at Calabogie went very well. The weather cooperated and though it was a tad windy and chilly friends showed up to cheer Steve on with much enthusiasm.

Nigel making some final adjustments

After the first lapping session we could tell that he had not lost his racing instincts.

Thumbs up heading for the track

He will need more track time so that he feels more comfortable to go out on the track for a full fledged race but all in all, it looks promising!

Hooking up with Mortimer Racing

Testing day is Oct 9th at Calabogie (Rain date 10th)!

  • There will be other cars there as well
  • Track time is 3 - 20 minute sessions
  • Nigel says that should be plenty for first time out
I’ll be driving the car that Nathan drove in Montreal.
  1. Sat in the car for 20 minutes while we chatted (I coulda slept in there it was so comfy J )
  2. The view in the 2 tiny mirrors is fantastic, 180 degrees. Virtually no blind spot without even turning your head
  3. Heel and toe – pedals are set so close you almost have to do it, it just becomes natural

Feels good!

Feet are a little close!
