MCO Lapping Night - July 7

Calabogie Motorsports Park

About this event

The Motorsports Club of Ottawa is pleased to host an evening of lapping on July 7.  Your registration fee of $100 plus HST gives you 60 minutes of track time at the fabulous Calabogie Motorsports Park, broken into two 30-minute segments, and an hour of classroom instruction.  Experienced at the track?  Join Andre Corriveau for a session on maximizing your pace throughout the track! 

This event will be busy, with plenty of traffic on course.  This is ideal for those of you working towards a "sign off" by Calabogie for solo driving in their events.  We won't be "signing off" participants, but if you are working with a coach who also works with the track, there is a possibility that you could be recommended for a solo check out ride at a later event.

Please note that your placement in a run group is at the discretion of the organizers, and may be applied before or during the event as necessary.

15:15 to 16:00:  On-Site Check In (cars will need to pass the "sound-check" -- so the earlier you arrive the better.)

16:00 to 16:45   Classroom/Driver's Meeting

17:00 to 17:30  Solo Track Time/Experienced Drivers with Coaches

17:30 to 18:00  New Driver Pod Experience/New Drivers with Coaches

18:00 to 18:30  Solo Track Time/Experienced Drivers with Coaches

18:30 to 19:00  New Driver Pod Experience/New Drivers with Coaches

19:00 to 21:00  Post Event at Redneck Bistro

Our event is open to everyone!

New to the track?  You will be assigned an instructor, and your sessions will run in a "lead-follow" format within a pod of three cars.  Any mechanically reliable car is appropriate for this run group -- you will be working on familiarizing yourself with the track and learning basic lapping day procedures.  Your speeds will be managed by a pace car.  You also have the option of opting out of the lead/follow and working directly with a coach!

Other drivers with Calabogie and track experience will run in the Solo sessions. Coaches will be available for both the New and Solo sessions at an additional cost.

Please Note: this event is open to cars only.  This event is not open to EVs due to track restrictions.  If you are bringing an open roof car, such as a Miata, you will need to have proper roll-over protection.  Unsure of what that means?  Email lapping@mco.org

The Motorsports Club of Ottawa is committed to equity and inclusion. We welcome and encourage participation from all.  If you believe you are facing a possible barrier to participation in this event, please contact the Lapping Director: lapping@mco.org -- we don't know what we don't know without your input.

Event requirements

All participants must have a Snell-approved helmet (2015 or later).  No helmet?  No problem -- you can rent one at the track.
