Just one or two, and I normally try to get there early so that I can grab one, lol.

They aren't really hook ups, just a few power outlets. They don't cater to RV's unfortunately.

+1000...I drove it y-day and though I've done so hundreds of times there is no greater feeling of accomplishment than having a successful day there (and in my case, driving the trophy home)

I find it puzzling that WGI, which is less than a 5hr drive away, can get over 200 entrants and Mosport struggles to get half that. These two tracks are cut from the same cloth -- Flowing corners, huge elevation change, big-boy pants speeds and dripping with motorsport history.

Montoya and Goodyear share their thoughts: https://www.wheels.ca/news/bowmanvil...-in-the-world/

If you're thinking about making the trip, I guarantee you won't regret it.

I hope to see you there.

Tracks aside, logistically I think WGI has the upper hand with the garages and tons of places to stay just minutes from the track.......though they did just complete the new Choice Hotel in Bowmanville right across from the H/I Express, it's still a pretty good ride from there to the track.

Of course, there's still the Flying Dutchman

I've got to get up there. You guys are pondering these deep philosophical questions and we're down here hoarding Swedish Fish.

No trailer? No poutine? Pas de probleme! -- MD likes cuddles so I'm sure you can bunk with him, and I'll order an extra large poutine for sharing.

(This offer open to all CanAm Mosport racers)

Well if we all lived in Watkins Glen that logic might work. Mosport is twice the distance from my CT-based shop vs WGI, plus you have the boarder crossing to deal with.

Not that I won't make it there and agree the track is must-visit someday...
