    Default Lakeview 2018 - Canada's Largest G8 Meet June 09 2018

    Hi Guys its that time of year again. A small group of 40 of us with G8's will be assembling ourselves at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park on June 09 for Canada's largest G8 meet.


    We’ve come a long way from the first year with a few guys meeting in a rainy parking lot. Each year we've built on the success of the previous year's event. By all accounts, our event last year was a success, and we're excited to announce some details of our cornerstone event for this year.

    We listened to your feedback after last year’s Meet. Overwhelmingly, you enjoyed the venue and format. We’re thrilled to announce that the OGOC Lakeview Meet will be heading back to Mosport (a.k.a. Canadian Tire Motorsport Park) for 2018!! Our third year at this facility.

    Incredible Activities
    For those of you who missed last year’s Meet, we had a great time and were privileged to participate in a bunch of very cool activities. MORE GOOD NEWS… we will get to do all of that again this year!! So, that means…
    riding along in an instructor’s car at high speed on the track (strap in, these guys love to go FAST!!)
    driving "parade laps" in our own cars on this world-famous racing circuit (at "street" speeds).
    showing off car control (or killing tires) with G8’s on the skidpad
    seeing this world-class race track through the eyes of a racing veteran on the Track Walk
    enjoying a great catered dinner and drinks at the beautiful Event Centre, which overlooks the entire track.

    A Terrific Day
    Naturally, all of this will be combined with the great time we always have when we get together, discussing and showing off mods, hanging with our Club Members and guests, meeting new folks and, of course, showing off our awesome selection of dozens of G8’s in one place!

    We will have our usual awards and some cool draw prizes. As you know, our sponsors have been generous in the past. We work hard on this every year and are always looking for new sponsors and ideas. We’ll announce more details on sponsors and giveaways as we get closer to the Meet.

    Awesome Venue
    In addition to the great activities, spending time with fellow Members and checking out all the great rides, Mosport makes a great venue for our Meet.
    We will have our own dedicated area for the day.
    We’ll be at Mosport for the full day, so no time wasted traveling between multiple locations.
    We will not need to worry about any municipal noise by-laws here
    We are free to walk right up to various trackside areas and watch as a very interesting mix of cars participates in an Advanced Driving School on the Grand Prix track. This can range from daily drivers to fully race-prepped cars… Porsche, BMW, Corvette and other performance brands are well-represented and we may even see a few 'exotics'.
    For those who haven't been, Mosport (okay, fine, it’s Canadian Tire Motorsport Park ) is an iconic, world class motorsports venue. It is the all-round fastest road circuit in North America and among the fastest on the planet!! Mosport has an incredible, storied history. Jackie Stewart ranked Mosport's thrilling Corner 2 as one of the most challenging corners in the world. It's a natural road course, with dramatic elevation changes and natural beauty.

    We'll be mixing our traditional Show 'n' Shine 'n' Meet 'n' Greet together with the various bonus activities throughout the day. The Track Walk happens at 5:00 PM, followed by dinner and drinks. We will provide a more detailed timeline as we get closer to the event.

    In order to fit all of this into one day, we would like to have cars parked and everyone settled in by 9:00 AM so we can get things rolling. So, if you're traveling a fair distance in order to attend, please start thinking about your approach to this. Staying with friends or at a hotel the night before is highly recommended as you’ll be well rested and can fully enjoy the day. That said, if you can't arrive right at 9:00 AM, you're still welcome, of course!!

    Food Options
    Your feedback tells us that the boxed lunches weren't fantastic (for the price) last year and that most were pretty happy with the concession stand options. So, we've decided to drop the boxed lunches this year. The concession stand at Mosport offers typical fare (burgers, dogs, etc.) and feedback on the quality of this food was generally good. Of course, you can also pack your own lunch/cooler. We will have plenty of water and other soft drinks available throughout the day.

    As mentioned, a delicious, catered dinner will be served in the Event Centre. For a very reasonable price, you get a full course meal with dessert and two drinks (beer or wine). This will be a great way for us to hang out and wrap up the day!! Also, if you can snag a spot out on the deck, the view is spectacular.

    Most of the costs involved on the day are for food and beverages. OGOC has once again managed to keep its costs low and so admission to the event will be:

    Member (and car): $10
    Guests (age 13+): $ 5 each
    Dinner (optional) : $20 each

    PLEASE NOTE: ALL DINNERS MUST BE PRE-ORDERED WHEN YOU REGISTER FOR THE EVENT, so the caterers know how many meals are required.

    How do you guys do this?
    Because we're awesome. Actually, the BMW Club of Canada, Trillium Chapter is awesome. This will be the third year they've graciously offered to have us host our meet at their event.

    The Trillium Chapter has been together since 1973 and conducts several Advanced Driving Schools, Racing Schools and Street Survival Schools each year. Trillium's events draw roughly 50% BMW's and 50% other vehicle brands/owners. We have a few OGOC Members that have experienced one or more Trillium events at Mosport and we hope that more of you will be inspired to join us on the track sometime soon. It is an excellent way to improve your driving skills and is an incredible feeling. Trillium’s generosity and willingness to work with us to have our Club hold our Meet at their event has been truly impressive.

    The "Coles Notes" (or "Cliff's Notes" for our American friends)
