  7. I received this today from Norm, a Gimli photographer. I hope the link works. H. 1941Teddy has shared a video with you on YouTube Gimli Ice Festival - Fire on Ice Car Racing - March 2019 by 1941Teddy The Gimli Ice Festival has hosted the Winnipeg Car Club and their Fire on Ice racing for eight years. If you're into watching some amazing ice racing, Gimli is the place to go during the Ice Festival. Once the racing is completed, the friendly drivers will take interested spectators for a zip around the track. This year I was able to hook up with racing car driver TIm. Tim was gracious in allowing me to attach my cell phone to the car's inner windshield and take me for a heart thumping ride around the track. Thank you Tim! I hope that this video gives you a sense of what these drivers are experiencing, especially 'flying' around the track in a near total whiteout.

  9. Joining us from “outside” Canada? We are often asked if there are special forms or documents that need to be produced at the Canadian border in order to bring a race car into the country in order to attend an event. The answer is “no”. If you are not leaving any goods in Canada (i.e. you are taking everything you bring in out again when you leave) then you are not subject to any import rules or requirements. The Border Service may ask you for information about the event, or some form of proof that the race car is yours (log books are great for this – although we usually just show them our name on the side of the car). What they want is assurance that you are not importing anything into Canada. We have taken an excerpt from the government’s guidelines on importing vehicles – have a look below. It clearly states that vehicles entering the country temporarily don’t require any special documentatiton. Have your event registration or other relevant documents printed and on hand to show in case they ask. In our opinion, something of greater importance, is whether or not your home country will want anything from you before they’ll let you bring your car home… We know from our own experience returning to Canada after racing in the US that the Canadian Custom Service is most interested in whatever “goods” I might be bringing back to Canada (so they can charge duties). You may need to be able to prove you owned the car and other equipment before you left your home country. Again, a log book is good proof as is pointing at your name on the side of the car. Make sure you check your own border and customs rules so that you don’t run into difficulties on your way home. Thank you for considering one of our events – we look forward to hosting you… Import Vehicles Memorandum D19-12-1 ISSN 2369-2391 Ottawa, September 19, 2018 This document is also available in PDF (633 Kb) Relevant excerpts for visiting racers: Vehicles Entered Temporarily 67. The circumstances listed below allow the temporary entry of vehicles into Canada without having to comply with TC’s import requirements at point of entry into Canada. These vehicles generally do not require a Vehicle Import Form – Form 1 or RIV e-Form 1 unless they need to be registered in the province or territory during its temporary entry. As such, the importer can submit a completed Vehicle Import Form – Form 1 or RIV e-Form 1 and indicate that the vehicle is not required to enter the RIV Program by checking the “visitor or temporary resident” entry box. Note: Motor vehicles which have been documented on a temporary admission permit, Form E99 – CBSA Report, or Form E29B – Temporary Admission Permit, will only be issued a Vehicle Import Form – Form 1 or RIV e-Form 1 when the importer confirms or anticipates having to fulfill provincial/territorial registration obligations. 68. A temporarily imported vehicle cannot be sold, gifted or otherwise disposed of while in Canada, does not qualify for permanent importation and cannot remain in Canada longer than the time constraints listed on a persons’ work permit, student visa, or other CBSA entry documents. Once these time limits have been exceeded, the vehicle no longer qualifies for temporary entry and must be exported. Should the temporary status of persons change while they are in Canada, the vehicle will have to be exported and subject to the regular importation requirements for that class of vehicle so as to determine if the vehicle is admissible as per the applicable sections of this memorandum. Visitors 69. Vehicles may be admitted into Canada without complying with the MVSR when they are to be used exclusively by a person entering Canada as a visitor for a period not exceeding 12 months; or temporary residents such as students studying at an institution, for the duration of their studies in Canada; or individuals with valid work permits/authorizations for employment for a period not exceeding 36 months. http://cbsa.gc.ca/publications/dm-md/d19/d19-12-1-eng.html Thank you to Helmut Friedrich for providing this information.

  14. Despite an unfortunately low car count this season there continued to be an exceptional commitment from our group of dedicated organizers, officials and track volunteers. Given that this was apparently the coldest winter in 40 years a huge shout out is warranted to all those that helped make this season happen. Much appreciated!
  15. I have to pass on an extra special thanks to Lee McRae who allowed me to run his car in the enduro and rev the living bejesus out of it. Almost makes me want to buy a Ford! RIP Suzuki Swift #88
  16. This is really awesome. It's a shame my pc is down right now
  17. That's pretty wild!! A couple of the good bumps are missing, but it puts me right on the track at Gimli.
  18. Nope I started from scratch on this project.
  19. i remember reading something about a Gimli model before, wondered if he has done some of the work you are doing or if this platform is not related to what you are doing? Either way its amazing how these simulators work today. definitely a cool project.
  20. I went after work yesterday for a few races, they even talked me into trying out out the Pro Karts, totally different animals! I wasn't much faster than the Race carts, but it was my first time out. I'd be in for some racing. Dason
  21. Been busy for the last week on the computer making a real life model of gmp for asetto corsa. The track was overlayed onto an image from Google maps so it is a perfect 1-1 scale. From there all it took was some tweaking of the track elevations for dropoffs and camber in turns and it feels great. Even added different track grip textures for the new pavement. Paired with vr it feels dam near as good as the real thing. Track times so far are within 0.5 seconds vs real life with the frs in the game. The handling characteristics of cars are exactly as expected when racing in real life. Over the next couple weeks I plan on working on some models of gmp buildings to complete the look(instead of having a giant porta potty for a control tower haha). Check out the video on YouTube of a lap around.
  22. You guys can't get rid of me that easily. lol It's like a family. I just got my Officials license 2 days ago, and I still plan to come out a few times per year and do some corner marshalling. (always a need for those) The good times after the racing, was just as much fun for me as the racing was. I don't plan on giving it up entirely. See you all at race school.
  23. Hey Mark, I'm relatively new to karting and would probably get stomped by everyone else … but that wouldn't stop me from having fun and getting a chance to socialize with club members. Count me in for any day, any time!.
  24. All the best Don, get well soon. Enjoyed having you as a GMP neighbour. Come back when you can. - Steve
