Ha ha, thanks Will. It's great to hear that you and Darin will be making a comeback this year. The only thing I can guaranty is that I will be using less gasoline than anyone else there!

It's always the same route Darin. That makes direct comparisons from prior years possible.

Jeff has prepared a shortened route of 70 miles for the EV's though. I don't have any copies of the route instructions from prior year's events. David, my navigator always kept them.

We're getting close to the date and I'm excited about this year's competition and vehicle roster!

YES, we will use the same route as in previous years unless there are any detours. I intend to check the route sometime this week.

YES, Team America and that guy from the Thousand Islands (which is pretty close to 'Murrica anyway) are welcome to stay in the chocolate factory as usual.

YES, I will be running the Levin yet again this year unless I can get Tesla to loan a car (I had a nice meeting with them in Ottawa this week).

If you're planning to attend, please sign up here with the following format: (Year Make Model) DriverName & CodriverName

Thanks Jeff. Celine and I are all signed up.

I hope you can get a Tesla. That would be outstanding!

Merci encore, Jeff!

So I don't suppose I can get the old route instructions? I HAD THEM! I cleaned house and they went in the blue box.

It's on my todo list, I just don't have a copy on the computer I'm using at the moment...

A few Smarts are signed up and will be looking to defend their title. And if the weather permits (as it always has to date) we'll likely have a T-Rex shadowing the pack to see what kind of numbers that beast can pull in.

Route checked!

Went out and checked the route yesterday. Very happy to report that there are no detours this year and there's a fair bit of the rougher asphalt that has been resurfaced.

I completely disregarded fuel economy and had an absolute blast. Will try to bring my A-game on Saturday, although I'm not sure I'll mount the chin spoiler or make any significant mods. Can't wait! Downtown is already transforming itself in anticipation of the F1 Grand Prix...
