We have a leisurely breakfast and leave 10.
The turn 3 gate is now open but so narrow. Allan paces it and determines we’ll make it.
Today is filled with races. Our favourite of the weekend is the Nascar Pinty’s Series. The sun is shining so we brave the rickety Michelin overpass bridge and settle to watch the race at the start/finish line.
First the skydivers, GERONIMO! SKYDIVING TEAM
Oh no, where is the sun? It’s getting cloudy, very windy and cold! We stick it out as long as we can and then seek Bailey’s comfort.
The skies open up but fortunately all the racing is over.
We loved the weekend even with this crazy weather.
First race starts at 9am, it’s going to be a busy day.
On our way back to Bailey we stop at turn 2 but first we grabbed a bevvie.
We do venture to turn 5 and watch there for a bit.
The on track activities are over so we walk on the track back to Bailey where we’ll watch the fireworks.
A well-deserved glass of wine and fireworks!
Cool being woke up with cars on the track. We have a great view from the captain chairs so don’t have to rush out.
Off next to check out the infield activities, not much happening today. We’re in the Beer Garden and I get a free beer. Allan selects a 61 which is named after the year the track opened.
The grounds are beautiful we walk through the wood heading back to Bailey.
Head to the stands at turn 2, awesome view!
Racing! So much fun 😊
Wake up very excited! On our way to pick up Bailey for the race weekend at 10:30a. Get to the campground, load up and off we go to Clarington at 11:28. 52,861km.
Drive to Canadian Tire Motorsport Park takes about 2 hours with only 1 “oh shit” wrong turn moment.
We thought the gate at Peace Bridge was narrow, nope! We now know what is narrow, the entrance to this park. Fortunately, Allan was super cool we get through relatively easily.
Allan is happy installing his GenTuri! I don’t get it, but he loves it. He also uses the jack stands for the first time.
There is some track activity and we are pleased with our view. It’s not too busy yet giving us an opportunity to scope out the place.
We wander over and yes that is exactly what we’re seeing.
Allan is in heaven! This just never gets old!!
We end the night visiting our neighbours fire.
Bailey reunion day! It will be a short lived reunion but excited to get her.
We leave for the dealer in Smithville at 8:40a, eta 10:22a. Almost there but whoops, detour! The road we normally take is closed due to construction so we follow the Detour Route. We drive and drive and drive, finally arriving at the dealer at 10:50a. Forgot to take a photo 🙁
Head back, you have to love Toronto traffic – it’s brutal! It is worse than this photo depicts. Make it home at 1:30. We fill up with fresh water and Allan attempts to install our new Genturi but the connection fitting we require is not included. Amazon here we come!
2:21 Off to the campground. Kyle is here so he rides with Allan and I follow.
We know our actual site is not available yet because the trailer currently occupying it is not out yet. It is still too wet to move. Way too much rain this season.
We are storing it there, looks a little lonely, until Thursday when it’s off to the races.
We are picking up Bailey on Saturday, bringing her to the camp where our spot isn’t ready yet but they have agreed to store her.
Thursday, we pick her up and head to Canadian Tire Motorsports Park, the track previously known as Mosport, for the Castrol Victoria Day Speedfest.
Weekend after that we bring Bailey back to the dealers as they still are not finished the repairs.
Anxiously excited, for the races, not bringing her back to the dealer!!
When we purchased Bailey, the sales agreement stated everything on the coach must function. There were also paint repairs to be done. The paint did not get done prior to us taking delivery and it was agreed that we will bring Bailey back in spring to for the paint. We brought her back in April.
During the 10,000 km of travels we found a few other things that never functioned. That first trip was quite the experience!
These are some of the things that didn’t work:
Maybe not having somewhere to park Bailey for the summer isn’t such a bad thing right now.
We have Canadian Motorsport Park booked for the May long weekend we are hoping to borrow Bailey from Sicard’s for the race weekend.
