There is nothing like renewing old acquaintances and making new friends. Unfortunately, I was not racing this weekend. There are many reasons behind that, but this gave me the opportunity to be out and about. Exploring the grounds of Mosport as I sought out some interesting camera angles. My good friend and photographer, Richard Wintle, has obtained some intriguing shots from the outside of the Andretti Straight (See A Track/Lapping Day Pictorial). That is a forested section of the track that I had not been to before – because it is a forest and it has looked pretty impassible. So off I went. And on foot it is doable with relatively good hiking paths, but I should have taken more water bottles. Thanks to the BARC Rescue Crew who, while they did not need to leave their post to rescue me, did provide me with a water bottle and then a ride back the approximately 1.5 miles to the paddock. My gratitude to Tom for his kindness to a weary photographer.
