    I see Alain Lauziere, and only Alain, listed as one of the 17 TC entries in World Challenge, but I also see Alain, Michael Sallenbach and Paul Gravel still on the drivers list for TC in CTCC. Nathan's right, we should wait to hear from Octane, then post a schedule...or schedules. Only trouble with that plan is World Challenge racing starts this weekend! Click here to see the WC schedule.

    I want to go up and watch one of the races this year in Toronto. Maybe a MoM road trip.

    CHKMINI, the CTCC will not be at Toronto in 2013. Now that does not mean we will not be there! :wink:

    Team Octane & the CTCC - 2012

    I'm fortunate to travel to throughout Canada for work. I'm going to figure out a way to make a race weekend to watch Team Octane!

    Alain,

    What about Pirelli WC? You're on the drivers list for TC. Will you, or any others from Octane, be driving the full WC TC schedule?
