Results of the RaceDV Lap Record Challenge at Calabogie Motorsports Park

The RaceDV Lap Record Challenge at Calabogie Motorsports Park is over. It turned out to be great a success at the Canadian Motorsports Expo. Our leaderboard was completely full and we had to resort to bumping people off as the slowest times were beat.


The challenge was to drive a Porsche Cup Car at Calabogie Motorsports Park and post the best lap time possible. Bruce Gregory, owner of the track, setup the game himself to closely match the real thing. He posted a 1:59.706, about 7 seconds quicker than a real cup car.

That time stood on top for just about the whole weekend. It took the full three days for Bruce's time to get beat. RaceDV's own Tim Wong managed to put a time in good enough for fifth.


I guess it comes as no surprise that the top times were all set by race drivers. The two times that beat Bruce's were set by 2007 Ontario Formula Ford champions. Kyle Marcelli topped the board on Sunday afternoon and kept that spot for most of the day. It took Matt White a nerve wracking series of laps with a crowd gathered in anticipation of a new leader. It was no earlier than the final 5 minutes of the entire weekend that Matt posted the winning time to cheers from the crowd.

Congratulations on the win Matt! We're looking forward to seeing you at Calabogie for your CMP Lapping Day with RaceDV's in-car video service.

Thank you Kyle, for making it such a close contest. It was incredibly exciting for all.

Congrats go out to all the top contenders. It wasn't an easy challenge to post good laps in such a short period of time.

Thanks to everyone who came out and tried their hand at the challenge. We hope you enjoyed yourselves and got to know a little more about RaceDV and Calabogie Motorsports Park.

If you didn't get a chance to come see us or have a chat, head on over to racedv.com to see some in-car video or our company site for more information about us.
