There might even be a dizzy there...

There's alot of FTE members near Orono. I went once last year, from Scarborough, with only one days notice, so it could be possible to get a few members to go on SUNDAY.
Somehow I don't think Matt will want to drive his Focus that far to watch tractors.

Should be a good event. First time they have tried anything like this.

The feeling was that Stirling is too far east and that Barrie is too far north, so why not pull together something in the area - there are enough guys into the stuff in the area.

I'll likely go on the Saturday. Might get lucky and spot my old truck - it resides just west of Bowmanville on the south side of HWY 2 - just past the Canadian Tire and such....

You don't think I will be able to squeeze it into my schedule of 12 hour, 7 day work weeks?

I wonder if they still have lawn tractor cicle track races? Saw those maybe 8-10 years back & they were "fast" & it looked like a real scream!!!!!!!!
Anybody got Tim Taylor's phone number?

Not 100% sure how modified - I remember about 7 years ago seeing one equipped with a V-8!
I think most of the ones drawing at Orono will be stock.

Circle track? Still huge in the USA from what I have seen on SPEED channel....

Should be a good week-end.....there is also a car show at Bethany the same week-end - about 20 - 30 minutes down the highway....

This sounds like fun. I'm 10 minutes away from the fairgrounds. Whatever the consensus is I'm available either day. Heck I might go both days.
