    What goods a toy if you dont use it?

    So I went to the Cadillac driving academy thing yesterday, it was held at Canadian Tire international Raceway (formerly known as Mosport) a 2.5mile long int.racetrack, what a blast, 8-5pm, lots of driving activities like Autocross, Accelerate/stops, Skid pad and drivers avoidance, slalom, lunch, breakfast, driving instructions, and of course, lapping on the racetrack (4 times lapping, 6 laps each time)

    I gotta say this thing feels right at home on the race track, its just so fluid, I never once felt like I Was gonna lose control, whats funny is that I was whoopin on 3.6 CTS's all day long, they pulled ever so slightly on my on the straights but come the corners I was taking them all no problem and where the V's lost me on the straights I was right on there heels in the corners! gotta say this car really did handle the track like a champ.

    I dont care how many times you topped it out in the sticks on a deserted road or how often you drove through mountain roads, this is something thats not comparable to any of those. If you've never tracked your ATS I highly recommend doing it, its an amazing experience, and you'll know what your car is truly capable of.

    Re: What goods a toy if you dont use it?

    Thanks guys it was a !#$@%ing RIOT!! gotta do it again for sure.

    Tire squeal? oh ya I had the back wheels screamin around some corners, there was a long bend that I was just about sideways smoking the back end! I really do love rear wheel drive.

    No one else in my group had a manual though! I really felt like the outsider, everyone else was auto and AWD. Needless to say I was also the only one getting it sideways and making smoke and racket while launching at the autocross lol.

    Is this invite only? I want to go to a track in my ATS, but I don't really know any around me.

    My dealer told me about it and I had to go online and sign up. Where abouts do you live? I've tracked my cobalt SS a few times, I always went to Cayuga and shannonville race tracks. This was my first time at Mosport and got the number to book it.

    EnvoyBu, We are practically neighbors. I live in BH as well.

    That looks like a blast. If there are any in this area I'd love to sign up...

    2.0T AWD. Silver Coast Metallic w/Caramel. I'm probably going to tint it at some point over the summer.

    What's your color combo?

    Black Diamond Tricoat on Black interior.

    I may or may not tint mine. I'm not sure if you can tint a lease or not.

    What trim level is yours? Mine is a Premium.
