Pictures from Mosport Weekend

Heres some pics of the may 31, June 1 trillium club weekend. Track walk was a great way to see the track especially turn 5A and 5B. I didn't realize how steep the incline was. Just signed up for the September 6,7 weekend

It was an X5 ///M. 555HP, and it was passing quite a few cars lol.
It was crazy to see such a big vehicle barreling down on you on the straights.

I've always said, it's not about what you drive, rather how you drive it. And that student was awesome. He was a beginner but picked up very quickly.

I'd rather see an X5 on track than an M3 in a Tim Horton's parking lot.

Capable or not, a hopped up X5 is compromise and goes against the idea of efficiency and performance.

I'm sure the driver was great, but imagine that same driver in a different vehicle.

Because you can, doesn't mean it's the greatest idea.


Glad everyone had fun.

Lol, no worries there, was just a people carrier for the track walk. Always nice to give back to the environment by carpooling

Remember this is an advanced driving school, not a race school, or time attack event. People are their to learn the dynamics of driving and that includes learning and getting a sense of how your daily driver feels and handles at the limit(the drivers limit, not necessarily the vehicle's). It is very valuable and could even end up saving his life one day. It is by no means his regular track day car.

I agree with you but a day at the track is not a representation of defensive driving techniques on public roads. When people see him passing other cars at high speed on the track, that's got nothing to do with increasing his ability to save his life. Were there a lot of reaction avoidance or induced recovery exercises? I have been through a number of BMW Advanced Driver Training courses and those I can believe would better fall under the position of helping the driver stay alive.

Yes this was the Trillium BMW advanced driver training course which included skid pad training and classroom sessions.
And believe it or not he actually got that thing to over steer lol.

There were quite a few, including some serious GT2ish speed cars with S54 swaps. Even an E21.
