I have about 30+ cars confirmed via my distribution list.
A few Astons, Audi R8's, Maserati, Ferrari, Lotus, Porsches, NSXs, etc
The weather is perfect with sun all day and no precipitation.

The route has a few turns so bring a GPS if you have one.
There will be stop/catch-up/washroom break locations if you get lost.
The end place will have food.
Bring your walkie talkies if you have one and set it to big number 5 small number 0.

The first part will be part of Paletta Cruise which Bob and Adi created. The second part is GTA West cruise. The roads are throughout the GTA West backroads and country roads far away from busy routes and lights.

Please come early as I always leave on time from Pre-meet locations and Start Points.
See you on Saturday.

cheers;
Saturn

Last GTA West drives.

Thanks to everyone who came out. My wife and I had a fantastic time. She was driving from Start point onwards. I was manning the video.
For those that asked why I did pre-meets you will see how we collect and do some highway runs towards the start point.
See you guys on the Big Loop Muskoka Cruise on Sept 23.


Enjoy!

There were six Lotus cars:

Elise: 2 yellow, 1 orange, 1 red
Exige: 1 matte black
Evora: 1 white

I only met briefly with the other Lotus owners. I hope that I can spend a bit more time chatting on the next outing.

I'm up for that. We can swap our "does your car do this?" scenarios?
