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

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: -- 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.
