A Day of
Racing at Shannonville
September 16, 1999: Steve's pit crew (Bob, Sasha, myself, and Lionel, the chassis builder - Jim couldn't make it) went to Shannonville for a day of racing which Steve sponsored for us. I decided I'd rather fly there than make the three hour drive, so I took Bob along with me.
Bob and I arrive at Brampton airport before dawn, and get ready to fly to Belleville.
In Belleville, Bob and I wait for Steve to pick us up.

Our car for the day, a 400 HP Camaro, owned by Phil Strudwick.
Lionel grins before getting in the car, as Steve and Sasha look on.

Me, putting on the helmet. We started off with the instructor driving us around. Next, we drove around with the instructor. For the remainder of the day, we drove on our own, with the instructor giving us tips and corrections after each session. Bob was the only one to spin out off the track! Thanks for the free beers, Bob! :)
Ready to go drive fast...
