we spent the morning in the home depot parking lot at dufferin and the 401, north side of the 401

we scoped out the lot, it has a great running surface, nice and smooth and we tried out the blower, sprayer, dots and ran some cars....it's going to be a GREAT location...accessible to all very easily....we attracted a lot of attention in the short time we were there and on a holiday!

Sorry for the bad quality... I had to darken it quite a bit just to make the track some-what visable. (bad settings on a bad camera )
