Calabogie - Ottawa Citizen Gentleman's GT Race Series

Hey everyone, I haven't seen many of you since I was doing Solosprint a couple years back, but I've been busy promoting the sport anywhere I can, and while doing so, i forged a new relationship...

Many of you, like me, after seeing the Ottawa Citizen Mustang Race Series at http://www.calabogiemotorsports.com, were extremely excited to get out there in my mustang, but I was disappointed that you could only run in a rented calabogie fleet mustang, and the cost was certainly out of my budget. After convo's with a few other people that had the same frustrations, I started speaking with one of the owners at Calabogie Motorsports Park, and after a number of discussions over details, we managed to strike up a deal. It's pretty grassroots for now, but i think that's half the fun! So may i present to you... the Ottawa Citizen Gentleman's GT Race Series!!! Details...:

THE OTTAWA CITIZEN GENTLEMAN’S GT RACE SERIES

Think you have what it takes to Race at Calabogie Motorsports Park. Why not test your racing skill in the Ottawa Citizen Gentleman’s GT Race Series. Limited opportunity!

What's a gentlemen's race?
It is all about camaraderie, safety, sportsmanship and just good fun! There will be specific passing zones on a fully marshalled track, so playing nice is mandatory! If any of you competed in the Calabogie Cup last year, you'll know what this is all about, and it is a ton of fun.


How do I Qualify
1. You DO need to have been signed off to drive solo at Calabogie Motorsports Park, but you DON’T need a Race License. This entails having completed at least one full day at CMP with an instructor or equivalent.

2. You can run any make and model of car with any modifications so long as you and your car have an average laptime around the full track between 2:25-2:45.

3. You must be running a Hero Cam inside the car to record the race from the driver’s perspective. In case of the unlikely event of an incident on track, this will provide track officials with more information about the incident. Bonus: You get a video record of your race, and you can trade with others to see what it looked like when you passed them! 

4. You will require a SNELL Rated Helmet, M2000+ or SA2000+

5. Your car must adhere to the CASC-OR Ontario Time Attack Safety Specifications located in SECTION 1 here: http://www.casc.on.ca/sites/default/...ons_online.pdf
The annual inspection list can be found here: http://www.casc.on.ca/sites/default/..._checklist.pdf
Calabogie Race officials hold the final word regarding the apparent safety of a vehicle. If they feel your vehicle is unsafe for the event, your vehicle will not be allowed on the track.

7:00 to 8:00 Post Race Award Presentation & Social
*The preceding schedule is for the Ottawa Citizen Mustang Race Series. Should there be less than 4 registrants for the GT Race, the GT race will run on track at the same time as the Mustangs. Should we have 4 or more registrants, the GT class will have its run group run during the off time of the Mustang Series.

Prizes
With a minimum of 5 GT Class registrants for a specific event, there will be a $250.00 Calabogie Motorsports Park Gift Certificate awarded to the first place winner of that event.

This is currently a pretty grassroots event, so we are looking for other sponsors to provide prizes and/or gifts for either placed finishes (1st, 2nd, 3rd, and Last) and/or for draws. If you or someone you know would be interested in providing prizes of some sort (gift certificates, cash, merchandise, etc.), please contact me at CalabogieGT@gmail.com


Race Rules
Race Rules Gentlemen`s GT Race (Subject to change)
1. Passing will be in specific zones and is by point by only, one point by per car. If you are the second car and don’t see a point by, you must wait until you do.
2. Under no circumstances is a pass to take place without a point by signal. Once you give the point by, you must let the car pass, you may not out drag it to the next corner.
3. Passing without a point by, or passing in a non-passing zone will result in a black flag, a warning will be given in the pit lane and a second violation will result in disqualification from that session.
4. Blue flags will be used to indicate a closing car. Repeated disregard for the blue flag will result in a black flag and a drive through penalty, so it’s not worth disregarding the blue flag.
5. This race is intended to introduce people to racing without the danger of car to car contact and drivers are expected to keep other’s safety in mind the whole time. We will do our best to not intrude on the racing with the blue flags but keep in mind that this series is a fun introduction, not the Montreal F1. Safety is paramount and we will pull anyone driving in an unsafe manner.

I look forward to this being a fantastic series this year, and for many years to come. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Thank you, and I hope to see you at the track!
