Greetings lapping day fans,

 

We know it's been a while and we hope you've missed us.  We definitely miss you!


If you are reading this, at one point or another you were signed up to the DIG Track Day mailing list.

 

We know we've been quiet this year. Due to an untimely track closure late last season, our events at Dunnville have been canceled indefinitely. We have been looking for alternative arrangements but so far have not found anything that we like. 

 

I'm sure many of you have heard the news that a new track is scheduled to be opened in the Simcoe area, by the name of Edenvale Autodrome. The latest update on Edenvale is that a permanent land use arrangement has not yet been reached at that location, which means that although there is a track there and it is being used - the track infrastructure is, in our opinion, not suitable for recreational lapping. At least for now.

 

If any of the above changes, you will be the first to know.

 

In the meantime, we are pleased to announce our collaboration with Douglas Ford in Barrie on a special lapping day at the Mosport GP Track

  

If you've ever dreamed of experiencing the thrill of Mosport in a laid back and friendly atmosphere, this is the day for you!

 

We are working with our friends at Douglas to organize a day that is safe, fun, and educational - which is what we strive for at every DIG track event.

 

Location: Mosport GP aka "big track"

Date: Wednesday, September 22

Time:  9am to 5pm

Cost: $300 

 

First timers to the big track will be taken for a ride along with an experienced professional driver to familiarize themselves with the course and the rules.

 

Passing will be in designated zones only and these rules will be STRICTLY ENFORCED.

 

The format is open with a limit to the number of cars on track at any given time.

 

The Douglas team will serve snacks at no charge alongside water, pop and coffee.

 

All registration inquiries and payment should be sent to Sal Vilardo -  svilardo@douglasford.ca

 

Sal can also be reached at 416-716-2485

 

We look forward to seeing you there!


Love,

The Dig Track Days Team

Hello Fellow Enthusiasts and WELCOME TO 2010!

 

2010 is going to be an excited season for all of us - with several new race being build and scheduled to open for business this summer this year has potential to be extremely exciting.

 

DIG is ready to bring on more lapping days as we've been doing since 2007 and so are all of the rest of the awesome event organizers you've grown to love, ONYX, KK, etc.  DIG is in contact with owners of the new tracks (and old) and will be contacting other organizers in an attempt to put together a great information package/newsletter in the coming months.  We will be sending the letter to all 2000+ members of our Track Day Mailing List, if you're reading this and aren't already a member, join us to be the first to find out news and event announcements regarding Ontario Track Days - click the "Mailing List" button at the top of this page for info on how to get yourself added.

 

That's all for now - hope to see you all at the track this season, play safe!

 

Love,

 

John & The DIG Track Day Crew
