TRACK DAY EXPERIENCE

Frequently Asked Questions

At Canadian Tire Motorsport park in Bowmanville we use a DDT (Driver Development Track) and open up entire 3 kilometer track configuration.

At Grand Bend Motorplex in Grand Bend we use a 1.5 kilometer configuration.

There’s no weight or height restrictions imposed by GTA Exotics, as long as you feel comfortable in the car. You may find that some of the cars (e.g. Lamborghini) are less roomy than other makes. Should you not feel comfortable in the exotic car that you reserved, our staff will be happy to offer you alternative vehicle on the spot.

Participants need to wear comfortable clothes and closed-toe shoes, preferably sneakers. Flip Flops and high-heels are not allowed.

All cars are Automatic with an optional paddle shift, except Ariel Atom Turbo which is the only Manual transmission vehicle (track experience only).

GTA Exotics Track experience does NOT require drivers to provide security deposit or purchase Insurance.

Powered by GoPro our In-Car recording provides an incredible opportunity to capture your drive on video with a Dual camera or a full 360 Degree view.  An amazing chance to re-live your entire experience later all over again in the comfort of your home! You will receive a digital file with your video recording within 48 hours following your Track day and will easily be able to share it with your friends and family. The Dual Video cost is $59.00 plus applicable taxes. The GoPro 360 video cost is only $99.00 plus tax per car and includes the dual video footage as well. Video may be purchased online, at the time of booking or at the registration on the Track day. All videos are stored in our database for one year following the event, in case you misplace the link or wish to purchase the video after the event.

Absolutely! All visitors are welcome free of charge and we encourage pictures and video from the sidelines.

Please arrive 45 minutes prior to your scheduled time so you are able to get paperwork, instructions and discovery laps out of the way. Budget to spend a minimum of 1-2 hours at the track.

Track day events run rain or shine, unless the weather is extreme. Should there be an event cancellation due to inclement weather the email will be sent out a day before and it will be noted on our voicemail phone system the morning of the event by 7 am. 905-815-1300

Canadian Tire Motorsport park (former Mosport) is located in the town of Bowmanville which is approximately 1 hr East of Toronto. 3233 Concession Rd. 10, Bowmanville, ON

Grand Bend Motorplex address is 70292 Grand Bend Line, Grand Bend, ON N0M 1T0 which is 1 hr North of London, ON.

We accept Cash and all major debit and credit cards including: Visa, Amex, Mastercard.

Laps completion time depends on how fast you drive. On average it takes 1.5 to 2 minutes per lap on a 1.5 km lap distance.

While there’s no speed limit and you may go as fast as you can, we encourage drivers to drive within their ability, in other words having control over the vehicle at all times. Should you operate the car in a manner that puts yourself, our instructor or anyone else on the track in danger, spin the car or take it off the track your experience will be over immediately, and you will not be able to continue. No refunds will be issued for incomplete laps.

Helmet is supplied if preferred but is not required for Exotic or Super cars. Ariel Atom Turbo is the only vehicle where wearing a helmet is a requirement.

All Track experience packages include general instructions and two discovery laps in a pace car (discovery van) where the instructor will drive around the track to show you the layout.  They will also guide you on the proper driving technique which will include hand position on steering wheel, braking points, the racing line, apexes and other important facts to make you feel more comfortable.

There’s always a professional Instructor in a passenger seat next to the driver in every vehicle. Unfortunately, that leaves no room for additional passengers since most of the cars have two-seats. If you are looking for an Exotic car experience you can do with a passenger, please consider the 20-30 min. Test Drive.

Every effort is made to provide you with the car you have reserved, however if due to unforeseen circumstances or unexpected maintenance we are unable to do so, we will provide you with equivalent or higher value car.

To avoid disappointment, we recommend booking your date, time and car as soon as the booking system opens up starting May 1st. Our Track Days are extremely popular and fill up fast! Cars are reserved on first come first served basis.
