Halfway Through the Season
Le Sommet des Légendes at Mont Tremblant is complete. Into every life must come a little rain, and that was the case this year at Tremblant. Unlike last year which had perfect weather, this year’s event was badgered by intermittent rain. Nonetheless, those there thoroughly enjoyed themselves and got in a reasonable amount of track time as sessions were spaced 30 minutes apart. Two of the six groups were for open wheels. All we needed, other than more sunshine, were more of our Monoposto friends to join us. This venue is truly one of the best in the world, and you should consider adding it to your schedule for next year. It combines a fantastic track with a spectacular setting. As usual, the International Blues Festival fell on the same weekend so all of us had interesting options for evening entertainment. Add to that a Monoposto party put on by Donna and Bill Demarest (see Bill above) and what more do you need?
Anyone coming from the West Coast can enjoy back to back events at spectacular tracks: Mont Tremblant and Road America. This brings me to our next event, the popular WeatherTech International Challenge at Road America. The entry list shows about 450 entries and appears very strong for the various Monoposto classes. If you want to see who is coming you can find out here.
Just about everybody there should have somebody to have a great race with! If that isn't enough to get you to the event consider the historic CanAm grid of nearly 50 cars. Talk about spectacle and noise!
As was the case last year, Lotus Lane Racing is graciously hosting the Monoposto party. It will follow racing activities on Saturday beginning a little after 5:00. Lotus Lane will be paddocked in the large area between the St. John the Baptist stand and the garages. Stop by and visit with Jeff Hailand, Stretch Bol and the rest of the folks there.
President, Monoposto Racing
