The Annual Great Canadian Meet - June 2010 - Greater Toronto Area

So another January is upon us, which means that I'm posting up another G2G thread.

Last year's meet was an unprecidented success with special thanks to Jay, my friends Mike and Tibi, and all of the guys over at
PureMB.com. We had a great meet and got loads of pics.







I really could go on, but there are too many to post, so here is the link to pics from last year instead.

I expect that this year's meet will be just as big, if not bigger. Word has gotten around during the last couple of years that 190rev spring meets have been good ones, and attendance has grown steadily year over year. Last year we had ~15 cars show up, and it was the biggest yet. I will be posting a similar thread on both 190rev.net and PureMB.com to try and gather as much attention to this as possible.

I also have something very special planned which I'm sure will have the West Coast boys green with envy. I'm keeping it to myself for now but I really do think that it would be exceptionally hard for anyone to top this.

OK so here's the basic rundown: We will do a lunch time meet & greet in the east end of Toronto, followed by a 2-4 hour pleasure drive through the Kawartha Lakes region, a stop in Peterborough for refreshments, and then returning to Toronto in the evening.

I'm triggering a forum vote on 190rev.net which will close on the 31st of March. Between now and then, everyone who is planning to attend please vote on a Saturday in June to do this. The most popular day is the one we stick to.

Any and all German tuners and enthousiasts are welcome to attend. That means bring your Porsche, Mercedes, BMW, Audi, VW, Opel, or Bugatti Veyron.

I'm hoping that he comes out again that car was a dream to see in real life and I was blown away that someone actually brought it out of the garage for my get together. What I have planned, though, is of quite a different nature entirely.

Great start there are already more than half a dozen takers! I have talked to a friend of mine to see if he can help me with my idea and he thinks that it is 100% doable. Things are moving forward well, lets keep this thread alive.

FINALLY, a map of the route I have in mind. I will drive the roads to the north of Peterborough to confirm that they are accessable and well paved prior to the meet.

So the basic idea is this..
  • We meet at Scarborough Town Centre (Start) in a large parking lot near a restaurant at 11AM.
  • We talk shop and then eat, departing from this location at ~1:30
  • We drive to Peterborough, a distance of approxemately 110 km/70 miles.
  • (1) Stop at a large drumlin known as "Armour Hill" in Peterborough, the location has a commanding view of the town and it has a VERY large parking lot on top.. Ideal for pictures.
  • Proceed on our pleasure drive through the north end of Peterborough, and through the University grounds. Lots of twists and turns, river/lakeside driving.
  • Mapquest says the trip should take around 2 hours (Blue line).
  • (2) Stop for refreshments at a pub in Peterborough at around 5:30PM, departing at around 6:30 for Toronto
  • (3) Return to Toronto and visit the "Queensway Kruz", a weekly car enthousiast drive which will be taking place at 1608 The Queensway (Canadian Tire parking lot)


Zoomed in:


Total driving time:6 hours (not including breaks)
Total driving distance:~375 KM

Everybody should remember to tank up before you reach the meet at Scarborough Town Centre. There is only 1 rest stop between there and Peterborough on the highway.
