    I assume the racetrack will have luxury skyboxes. Ridgeline is perfect for attending those.

    I've always wondered how the Corporate Tire Co. meeting went where they debated/discussed how to associate their brand with drifting.

    "Ok, so they obviously will be buying a lot of tires and we sell tires and I want them to spend all that money on our tires, but... I kind of feel a bit weird about our tire brand being seen as a tire that breaks loose and lets the car go sideways when we pretty much spend all of our current R&D and ad dollars on making the tires not do that.
    But... I really really want all that money!
    Let me go put a Rub&Tug on my expense account while I consider it further."

    According to the article that completely seems to contradict itself (which was exactly the quandary I was mentioning), they are "showcasing premium high performance tires".

    A single AZENIS RT615K+ in a rather skinny 255/40/18 is $366 each from Canadian Tire.
    YMMV.

    Awww, is us talking about cars rustling your jimmies? Maybe stay in your lane. You know, extolling the virtues of Avenue Magazine's infallible* taste in steak restaurants.

    *Where the word infallible now means "declare the best restaurant to be a different one every year"

    It's not really relevant whether you think it's a sport or not. The question is, "will people pay to rent a track in the winter?". Hopefully the answer is: yes there are a variety of car enthusiasts from across the spectrum that will pay for winter driving experience to Formula Dorifto.

    I liked this quote to CTV,
    "The filing goes on to say the company expects up to 280 vehicles on site during weekdays with the number swelling to 400 on weekends. Plans are in place to have the two courses operate 12 hours a day, 200 days a year, with 15 to 20 cars on the track at any given time, and the company expects to employ between 100 and 200 staff."
    I don't for a second believe these numbers.

    I drive literally nothing sir, but then again Iím not the one running around extolling the virtues of drifting on Motorsport.

    But hey, at least I donít ride a bicycle.
