About our Events

Advanced Driver Training - 2nd Gear
Our second gear course kicks it up a notch and provides licensed drivers the opportunity to work one-on-one with one of our experienced instructors, in their own vehicle on one of Ontario’s race tracks. This course builds on the theory and techniques students developed in our first gear course and provides participants the opportunity to advance their skills in a safe and controlled environment.

Carts and Coffee
Carts and Coffee is new to the SGR calendar for 2013. This social program offers car enthusiasts the opportunity to meet up with their peers and get their need for speed out on the go-kart track. These events are social meet-ups, held on Thursday evenings once a month throughout the season. Carts and Coffee provides our community a safe outlet for racing, and an opportunity to bring car enthusiasts together.

Car Care Clinics
Our Car care Clinics are tailored for women and youth. These evening workshops bring the girls into the garage, where we get them comfortable working on and under their own vehicles. The course covers changing tires, changing oil, replacing wiper blades, and how to jump-start a car in emergency situations. Car Care Clinics are about giving participants confidence in emergency situations, and encouraging women and youth to learn more about how their vehicles work, and how to keep them operating safely on the road.

Social Cruises
Cruises are the sight-seeing, day-tripping, car-loving, wind-in-your-hair way to bring our community together. Cruises take place twice a year – in the spring and fall – and offer participants a morning cruise through south-western Ontario, a BBQ fundraiser and optional go-karting in the afternoon. Cruises are fun-packed days for the whole family, and bring together a diverse group of auto enthusiasts and their cars. Cruises are open to anyone and we welcome all makes and models – classics, exotics, domestics, imports, tuners, and rat rods.

Russian National Finals 2015: Rostov-on-Don, Russia

Sunday, September 27th marked the largest Autosound event in the history of Russia. It was the first time that Russia has held a 4X DBDRA event, which is a pretty big deal. The event was judged by a good friend of mine, who also happens to be one of the most seasoned judges and officials for the DBDRA, Mr. Yiannis Lekkas. He traveled all the way from Greece in order to oversee the judging alongside Russian head judge Alexey Stroganov. The weekend brought hundreds of competitors to battle it out in multiple formats from dB Drag, Bass Race, EMMA and…
