Trillium at Calabogie July 19-21 - Registration Closes July 5

Hello Everyone, Trillium Chapter is excited to bring you our first Advanced Driving School at Calabogie Motorsports Park (1 hour west of Ottawa, 3 hrs west of Montreal, and 4 hrs northeast of Toronto). Calabogie is a great track to drive at with over 20 turns and a distance of over 5 km (25% longer than Mosport). We will hold a 3 day event starting on Friday, July 19 and ending Sunday July 21.  Saturday and Sunday will consist of on-track and classroom sessions for all levels of drivers, novice through advanced, as well as pre-approved solo.

School Update: September Registration is now 80% full

Members and Instructors. The September school is filling quickly with 80% of the spots now taken. September is one of our most popular dates since the weather is often dry, reasonably not too hot and not too cool, and still great amount of sunlight. With the school more than 3/4 full, a 'Sold Out' sign is soon to appear. Please apply today.

To contact the registrar for any questions regarding this event please email us at

Thank you
