The Ontario Regional Autoslalom Series, though an interesting fluke, is moving to Quebec for an event on August 14.

Team Insight is bound for PMG on August 13... so, anyone from the Montreal area want to meet up with us on Saturday night?

You locals will have to choose the venue, for obvious reasons, but give us directions and we'll be there!

(We're harmless, I swear. The other Ontario drivers can vouch for us.)

Guillermo, it would be very nice meeting you and Opal,
can anyone attend or even participate in the PMG event !
As for meeting point, one reknown meeting point for car inthusiast is the orange julep on decarie expressway, wich is the highway 15 south, south of highway 40. When joining 15 south from hwy 40, keep right and take first exit. you are almost there. you cannot miss it because there is a giant orange, i mean giant.
But maybe other memebers have better idea.

Actually I don't know if a novices are allowed to compete because this is a very unique and huge event where 2 different auto-x series (CASC-Ontario Regional and CADL-Quebec Regional) competitors will be competing on the same track under their own rules.

But specatators are allowed, but because it's located in a very high security automotive proving grounds, people are only allowed to enter and leave at a certain time. We will be escorted by security to make sure nobody wonders away from where we are allowed to be or takes photos of high security areas with prototype cars or test crashed cars.

For find out if novices are allowed to enter contact the organizer:

Is it possible to have the meeting at Orange Julep for lunch. This way we would have much of the afternoon to talk.

Else I would join you at the races on Sunday.

Here is the link to the Orange, it is easy to find:

And the location:
7700 Décarie (Namur metro) which is highway 15 South between the 40 and the 20

Opal and I cannot make it for lunch because we are leaving Toronto Saturday morning, then registering into a campsite etc..

We can be at the Orange at 6 pm.
Let us know who can make it at that time.
Thanks,
G

OK then, I had an "épluchette de blé d'Inde" that I will cancel so see you there.

I'll show you the mima and the trailer (it is getting old now)

I was not sure of the address for myself so I just did an "Orange Julep" search in google with the "Pages from Canada" as a location selection.

I'll try to contact Jean-Yves and Christian, I hope they can come.

ADDITION: OUPS, I just read in the mail you sent Normand that you already contacted them.

Hi Opal, Guillermo and Normand,

It was great meeting you, very nice people and very nice car improvement on your "slalom" Insight, I would have hoped to meet you at the race but was too tired from my corn party after the meet (wakeup too late, getting too old for partying all night))

The guy with no teeth on the moped says "hy" also (joke)

Next time we meet, you chose the vegetarian restaurant, it would be a nice change in food habit.

I hope to see some pictures soon.

Yes indeed Yves, it was a real pleasure meeting Opal and Guillermo.
We got the chance to see Guillermo's Insight set-up, quite nice.
Also, we test drove Yves car with MIMA installed and all i can say is
MamaMIMA, this is great.
I could not be there on sunday, work work work, but hopefully in the near future i'll be there.
The Vegetarian REstaurant would have been nice as i am 95% Veggy myself. Next time around we will plan this much better.
Again it was a real pleasure meeting you both and hope we will meet again.
