2016 Fall Drive

Recommended Posts

I've been looking at doing something for a fall drive but so far due to serval factors including a late season for both race and auto slalom, it looks like the next best date for me would be Oct 15. Not sure if anyone wants to go that late or if there will be any leaves left. 

If someone else has the time to organize something else earlier, by all means go for it.

I'm in.

Can't make the last track day tomorrow so I figure this is the perfect way to finish off the season. One last rip before the insurance expires and she officially becomes a race car. 

The usual whiteshell route?

If the weather forecast sticks (12C and sunny), I'm in. The earliest I can make it would be 11:30-noon though.

Yes we are still on for Saturday. A few other cars are coming on top of the list here. We will meet at the usual location at Canad Inns at Regent and Plessis. We'll meet at noon and leave around 12:30. Heading West on Dugald and towards the whiteshell. There will be a few washroom stops and refreshments/gas. Should be back in the city by 5:00 latest. See you there rain or shine.

Sounds good. I will be there if the car has not sold. I just got another email today about the car from some one who sounds very interested.

weather and schedule pending .... for 1

 

It is going to be -1 now. Items to do in the afternoon at work. Looks like it is going to be a great day weatherwise too.

Ya it was an awesome drive. Thanks to all who came. The traffic was non existent. The road to Ingolf was freshly resurfaced and the highlight of the day.  I think we passed 3 or 4 cars on the drive back on 44. And the tamarack pine trees were in full fall colors.

I too had fun and had no idea that pine trees change color never seen that before. I was going to post up pictures but we did not get any good ones

I'll have to hit up the spring drive. The car was roadworthy but had a  questionable control arm bushing and rusty rotor that deterred me from joining. 

Glad to hear you guys had fun  Ingolf is my favourite stretch too.
