The highlight of this event was meeting up with Kareem Sultan, founder of RaceDV.com who Vinay and I first met back in Montreal (BarCampMontreal3 – November 2007) when we demoed MadWhips.com the day after we re-launched showcasing our brand spanking new ProductWiki.com built software platform.


RaceDV was at the event with Calabogie Motorsports promoting each other via a Lap Record Challenge PC video game they had setup there. Check out the photos, it was pretty cool and as much as I wanted to try it I couldn’t come to wait in line behind a bunch of playstation3 hungry young’ins.


In addition to catching up with Kareem during his 5 minute breathers away from the crowd, I had the opportunity to finally meet the extremely talented official Calabogie Motorsports photographer (and software developer) Cory Klinkenberg of 303 Imaging.

UOIT Motorsports Formula SAE Team

The UOIT Motorsports team’s goal is to design, fabricate and race a scaled Formula-One-style car in the annual, Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), Formula SAE event in 2008.

Pretty damn cool, and as an automotive enthousiast and Engineer, I am super jealous that I never had the chance to be part of something this cool in University, because I would have been all over it!
