Buckle up – #herewegoagain!
This week we start with a DriveTeq driver education and track day at the fabled former F1 circuit, Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. After we conquer this, we make our way north to Montebello, QC for a half day program in the dirt with the Land Rover 4x4s! A little change of pace and scenery before … we land in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec to drive the storied “other” former F1 circuit in Canada, Le Circuit Mont-Tremblant! (more…)
DriveTeq has marked the start of the 2017 “summer track season” with a little Italian fun. A couple of weeks ago, we announced our Specialty Track Day: Che Belle Macchine (What Beautiful Machines) for Italian cars only, slated for May 24 at the CTMP Grand Prix circuit (click Here
for more info). The concept has been well received and we’re looking forward to a fun day with an all Italian heritage in auto sport.
This week we’re pleased to announce the continuation of MOTOMARCELLI by DriveTeq which was launched last year at CTMP. This year, the leader of the Marcelli Mob (as we affectionately refer to him), Kyle Marcelli is preparing to locally debut Ferrari of Ontario’s GT3 supercar at CTMP at the Victoria Day Weekend SpeedFest.

Okay, it’s a little discriminatory but we want to see more “Italians” at the track! Alfa Romeo, DeTomaso, Ferrari, Fiat, Innocenti, Lamborghini, Lancia, Maserati, Mazzanti and Pagani? Some of the most storied names in motorsport and just beautiful cars making beautiful sounds. Why not drive them in an environment where you can truly enjoy them? Think of the beauty of seeing many of these special cars on one of the world’s greatest tracks at the same time! (more…)
