OPEN LAPPING
OPEN TO ALL MAKES & MODELS!


SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 13, 2008
9AM - 5 PM (gates open 8 AM)

$150.00 ( gst) Lapping
$200.00 ( gst) Lapping with Instruction from Expert Gerry Low!

REGISTER ONLINE *or* Call 416-291-4561 to reserve your spot!

The Open Lapping Program is designed to give a driver a taste of driving on the track. In doing this, our instructors will help make you a better day to day driver.

There is a mix of classroom sessions and on the track driving exercises. The time is well balanced so you don''t get worn out from class *or* driving. The morning is mainly classroom and specific exercises on the track.

On track lapping is with an instructor who will point out the proper line and show various visual indicators to help you set up for turns correctly. What you are taught in the classroom is what you are going to try to achieve when going through a turn.

You will learn about braking, the turn in point, the apex and the exit. You''ll improve your driving skills and test your vehicle''s performance.

Improve your driving skills, enhance your confidence, and increase your experience. The 3km paved surface is a safe flat design with good run-off room and excellent sight lines, ample straights, challenging large and small chicanes, tight 90 degree and sweeping high speed turns. TMP offers an excellent technical course.

Its a fun looking track but I dunno about taking my truck on it, I mean it corners like a truck and it brakes like a truck and with the way I drive I'll either end up in the wall (Matt knows what I'm talking about) or burn up my brakes, but its fun to watch the guys with the BMWs and vipers race around.


Whaddya mean I dont pay my bills?? Whydya think I'm broke!!
