Special Note: DriveTeq’s standard operating practices have been modified to allow us all to enjoy our beloved track days in spite of restrictions as a result of COVID-19. We have successfully operated 2 track days already in June using our common sense pandemic protocols. The days were limited to track intermediates that needed some guidance (Intermediate 1), SOLO intermediates (Intermediate 2), and Advanced drivers. June 21st will be our first event at the DDT to include Novice drivers. Both Novice and Intermediate 1 drivers will be coached with our follow-the-leader method to ensure sound instruction while adhering to safe physical distancing protocols. Join us.

Track/Location: Canadian Tire Motorsports Park, Driver Development Track (DDT), Bowmanville, ON. Perfect training facility – large exercise area, skidpad, and technically challenging 3km multi-elevation training track. Celebrating the summer solstice with plenty of daylight without the traditional chanting. Track provider is DriveTeq.

Event Date: June 21, 2020 (Sunday)
