Here he is just before his first day Monday:
Later Monday, I headed to St-Eustache with the now reliable (knock on wood!) Civic. I told Pascal I wanted to follow him around for motivation so I could finally break my record and lap the track in under one minute. Pascal regularly laps in under a minute. I even removed the passenger seat to maximize my chances. Although we had a blast lapping together, we did not his the magic number of 59 seconds (my best of the day was 1:00.6). Maybe I will have a better chance when it's cooler out, as it was 28 degrees and very humid. I put together this video of our attempt.
Here is a photo I took before heading out
And here is a photo that was posted on MontrealRacing
I really hope I can break my lap record this season, but I don't want it to be all about lap times. I want to have fun and generally improve my driving.
There are always interesting cars in and around Montreal, as can be seen from these photos.
|Cool wheels on a design that is aging well|
|A rare sight in Montreal, as this model was never imported to North America|
|Although this model is still a much nicer design!|
