Solosprint school marks beginning of new Ontario time trials season

Had a great time instructing at the school this past weekend. Great students, a variety of cars and a very well organized sell-out event. The school, which was co-organized by Jon, included classroom sessions mixed with on-track time with one-on-one instruction and exercises like braking, skidpad, and autocross.

a couple vids from earlier in the week

Absolutely amazing sound from the Porsche GT3RS pulling away in this video from Gateway’s roval course. The twincharged D16 doesn’t sound too shabby either…

Here’s one from the last road course at Nelson Ledges. Notice how crappy the track surface is with patches upon patches. My butt was bouncing off the seat going down the front straight. 5th overall baby! A nice tour of the pits at the end.

You’ve likely seen the video at Hallett where I was held up by the Mazdaspeed 5. Well here’s another perspective from an earlier session. My first lap turned on this circuit.

autoblog mention

Summarizing the results of the 2010 One Lap of America, Autoblog mentions the twincharged Enmo civic.

“Other standout performances included the heavily modified #54 Honda Civic Si of Jonathan Weir and William Chan, with that car beating out far pricier machinery to finish eighth overall, winning the Econo Car class in the process.”
