    I went last year (from Aurora (north of Toronto)) and I can say it was a great weekend. The F-guys from Ottawa are great and everyone had a good time (even though my fuel pump failed on Cresent Street at 2am after one of the shows).
    I highly suggest that everyone from Toronto go to this event. The track day is really something as well and Calbogie is an amazing track.
    Unfortunately, I'm moving a few weekends before and may still be unpacking...so I may miss this year.

    I am thinking about that but not sure the track day at Calabogie is a fun-track day with an instructor sitting next or a real track day with experienced track-racer. Can anyone tell ?

    Hi F360-1386

    Give Michel at Xclusive Auto a call or email. They are running the track day for the Ferrari Festival and there are a few options. I know last year there was an open track time and my friend Lydia took me for 6 of the fastest laps/moments I have ever done in a car!!!! 355GTS!

    Hello Terry

    Thanks for the information, I will give Michel a call or send him an email to get more information about the track day.
    I tried only once driving my 360 at Mosport DDC and not sure if I can handle the real open track ...despite I have been driving for more than 30 years LOL.
    I will feel more comfortable if there is an instructor sitting next.

    I really look forward to join the fun weekend.

    Warmest regards
    Hubert

    FCA Ottawa track day will have 2 separate events for people wanting to try track.
    1) Open tracking for experienced drivers (instructors available).
    2) Taste of the Race event is a more controlled track session; follow a pace car at controlled
    speeds so you have a chance to drive the track without the pressure of open driving.

    Here's the link:

    Thanks Evansp60 for the information:

    I have one more question here: for the open track event - you mentioned "instructors available"; does that mean every car would have an instructor sitting next or we need to request for one and need to pay for that ?

    Best regards
    Hubert

    Just a brief note that the Sunday reception will take place at Villa Marconi and NOT the Ambassadors residence.

    Thanks

    Hello All!

    I do not believe the grounds were available for the day.
    Also there will be a "cheque" presentation ceremony at Villa Marconi as well as the luncheon.

    Cheers!

  25. So I will have a 348 and a 550 there, but if something mechanically goes wrong, is there any local ottawa area mechanics that are well versed in f cars.
    Youu never know and youd better be prepared for the worst!!

    I definitely want to check out the Calabogie Motorsports park. I haven't been, yet I live only 40 minutes away! Is it going to cost anything for spectators or am I going to have sneak in an F-car? :p
