OTA for 2015

time attack director / Tag: Time Attack

We at OTA are well on our way to the start of another great season that promises to be interesting and exciting.  We have recently introduced “double points” for our last regular season event which takes place at Grand Bend Motorplex at the end of August.  That way a competitor who does well at the last event can count those event points twice and drop one of his lower scoring events. A competitor’s points in a minimum of six events out of nine will count toward the final season tally and gain the competitor eligibility to take part in the season finale Championship Shootout, which takes place at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park Driver Development Centre track in September.  There is also a noon to evening event at Toronto Motorsports Park this year and that seems to be garnering some interest among competitors as well.  That, along with our new venture at Calabogie Motorsports Park this season, where there will be a lapping day hosted by the Ottawa Motorsport Club on the Saturday and an Ontario Time-Attack competition event on the Sunday, along with our usual tracks that we visit, adds excitement and variety to this year’s schedule.

The constant search for those extra ‘10ths of a second at the track consume us as we rethink what car we have, what mods we have, the class we want to compete in and where we can improve as a driver.  And that is really what it is all about – we learn the fundamentals at one of our schools and then practise them on the track.  Gradually we see improvement as we edge closer to the limits of our vehicle and our skill.  It’s a rush.  And it’s all done as safely as possible and with a great group of individuals who share our interests.  We have excellent instructors in the classroom and in the car, and fellow competitors in the paddock are great at sharing their knowledge and advice. 

If you have been considering Ontario Time-Attack, by all means give it a try.  A warning though – it’s addictive, but in a very good way.

You can learn all you need to about getting started at our Open House, which takes place Saturday, March 28th at JRP, 2344 South Sheridan Way in Mississauga. 

See you at the track….
