About our Events

Advanced Driver Training - 2nd Gear
Our second gear course kicks it up a notch and provides licensed drivers the opportunity to work one-on-one with one of our experienced instructors, in their own vehicle on one of Ontario’s race tracks. This course builds on the theory and techniques students developed in our first gear course and provides participants the opportunity to advance their skills in a safe and controlled environment.

Carts and Coffee
Carts and Coffee is new to the SGR calendar for 2013. This social program offers car enthusiasts the opportunity to meet up with their peers and get their need for speed out on the go-kart track. These events are social meet-ups, held on Thursday evenings once a month throughout the season. Carts and Coffee provides our community a safe outlet for racing, and an opportunity to bring car enthusiasts together.

Car Care Clinics
Our Car care Clinics are tailored for women and youth. These evening workshops bring the girls into the garage, where we get them comfortable working on and under their own vehicles. The course covers changing tires, changing oil, replacing wiper blades, and how to jump-start a car in emergency situations. Car Care Clinics are about giving participants confidence in emergency situations, and encouraging women and youth to learn more about how their vehicles work, and how to keep them operating safely on the road.

Social Cruises
Cruises are the sight-seeing, day-tripping, car-loving, wind-in-your-hair way to bring our community together. Cruises take place twice a year – in the spring and fall – and offer participants a morning cruise through south-western Ontario, a BBQ fundraiser and optional go-karting in the afternoon. Cruises are fun-packed days for the whole family, and bring together a diverse group of auto enthusiasts and their cars. Cruises are open to anyone and we welcome all makes and models – classics, exotics, domestics, imports, tuners, and rat rods.

Redline Track Events Liberty Grand Prix - Willow Springs Raceway

As the Redline Track Events series approaches its halfway point in the 2011 season, the series headed back to Willow Springs Raceway for the 2nd annual Redline Track Events Liberty Grand Prix.  As usual in the desert in July, temperatures were north of 106° and as we all know, heat is the natural enemy of race cars.  Heat related mechanical issues plagued a record number of teams making this event a competition of reliability. The Pro Track Challenge cars are the stars of the weekend, as well as stars of the Circuit Battles TV show.  Overheated cars and overheated tempers…

Tokyo Auto Salon 2016: Mihama-ku, Chiba. Japan

TAS 2016 was a bit of a renaissance for me. It was the 10th consecutive time I’d visited the event since arriving in Japan in 2005. And whilst I wished for things to be totally different, I am glad that much of what I’ve come to know and love hasn’t changed at all, whereas many other things have undergone transformation. That’s not to suggest the Tokyo Auto Salon is stale in any way, but you do get used to the rhythm and tempo of the event after having visited it so many times. The same faces, the same names —…
