Advanced Driving School & Mosport Weekend
Apr 26 – Apr 28 all-day

It is the first one of the series for this year.  The Advanced driving school at Mosport in coordination with BMW Trillium Section we will have a comprehensive schedule for a hole weekend of class room and track training. Spring is beautiful in the country setting and even more exciting with engines reving and tires fighting for grip while getting very intimate with your highly engineered partner 🙂  The Mosport track is an outstanding facility for advanced driver training as it provides a series of fast and short corner, some long straights and significant elevation changes.  This all adds up to an exhilarating weekend of learning and using the performance aspects of your MB.

Please sign up early as they sell out quickly once the registration site opens.  As MBCA member you can pre-register and we help to get you the spots you would like.  It is like having a “front row” VIP service without having to have the Mega-ultra-platinum-diamond Amex card.

Safe Drivers – Safe Families Driving School @ MBCA Driving School

Safe Drivers - Safe Families Driving School @ MBCA Driving School | Brampton | Ontario | Canada

Registration is now open – click here

MBCA Safe Drivers  – Safe Families

Driver Education

Our training is designed to teach adapt driving at save speeds to simulate a variety of highway driving situations.  It gives the participant the opportunity to add alternative maneuvers to their driving knowledge when an emergency situation occurs. It is knowing what your car can do to you – and what you can do to your car. Accidents happen in a split second. Adept driving may help drivers gain an extra second in reaction time in that emergency situation and that second may just save their lifes.  In an emergency, every second counts.

Two courses are being offered under the Safe Drivers – Safe Families umbrella.

Driver Improvement Course for the more seasoned driver who wants to update his/her driving skills

Young Driver Course where we will be teaching basic driving skills and car knowledge to our younger students and new drivers.

In the morning, the class begins with a brief classroom instruction, where participants will learn proper seat and mirror adjustment, steering techniques, braking, foot position, tire patch theory and car dynamics. Then participants will drive through the various stations we have set up in a parking lot, with an instructor at their side at all times.  We will have them practice avoiding an obstacle in the road, proper hard braking technique and steering through slalom to feel the cars dynamics. They will also experience the feel and sounds of their ABS brakes. We will take them through several times until they feel confident or when we feel they have successfully completed the course.

Lunch Break – A small lunch and soft drinks are included in the registration fee.

In the afternoon, we will re-design the course, making an AutoCross Lite. We basically connect the cones from the morning sessions so that there is a continuous flow through the course. Participants will be able to drive through this course (once with instructor) and review the skills they learned in the morning session. The object is to practice some of the techniques learned and to have fun driving through the course as quickly as possible without knocking down any of the cones. Sometimes we take people through a few times until they feel comfortable and then ask them if they want to be timed. There will be certificates and awards but not necessarily only for the fastest!

Note: We want people to bring the CAR THEY DRIVE EVERY DAY (it does not have to be a Mercedes). Especially students in the Young Driver Course, we want them to bring the vehicle they drive daily, not necessarily mom and dad’s car.

TORONTO TECHSESSION 2016
The Toronto Section held its 5th annual TechSession put on by Mercedes-Benz Canada on April 23rd at their Toronto training facility near Pearson airport. 47 participants attended this event hosted by Arden Nerling, Events Manager of Mercedes-Benz Canada. The presentation of the new technology in the new 2017 C 300 4 Matic coupe and GLE was done by Derrick Tan, Sales Trainer at the Training Academy with the assistance of Rob Takacs, Corporate Sponsorship’s & Event Marketing Project Leader of Mercedes-Benz Canada. These new cars have more computing power than the space shuttle.

M-B Club Tech Session group

Distronic Plus with steering assist was demonstrated, clearly demonstrating the added value of the new technology including the Baumester sound systems,360 degree cameras and radar that looks out to 500 meters to identify risks to the driver as well as Pre-Safe brakes with pedestrian recognition. The Independent Driving Program ADP is already in use in these new cars. We even learned why sub woofers are now in the firewall and not in the doors to provide extra airspace to make them more effective.

The apple and blue berry strudel as well as the pretzels were delivered and the writer admits to eating six of them, plus taking two of them home
Some new members were present as well as many familiar faces that have enjoyed the previous events, including members from the Mercedes-Benz Club of Canada. Harald von Langsdorff, presented the next upcoming year event which is a BBQ at AZIZ body shop in Oshawa when Harald picks up his new refurbished 6.3 sedan. This meeting provided the new members not only to ask questions about the new technology but also to ask existing members about their recent classic car purchases and share information.
Doug Dees reminded everyone about the MBCA draw for a Mercedes-Benz Airstream motor home and $20,000 US cash as the Grand prize. Information is available on the mbca.org website. An update on the history of the ownership of Justin Trudeau’s 300SL roadster was also presented.

George Morita one of the founding members of the Toronto Section 26 years ago was presented with a British Automobile Club grill badge from the 1940’s for his 1949 Bentley sedan .
The warm spring sunshine kept some of the members outside during the break to look at the latest acquisitions of their fellow members and to share stories.
The draws for a a Mercedes-Benz back pack, golf umbrella between presentations resulted in smiling faces and those that didn’t win a grand prize of a back pack received a complimentary Mercedes-Benz key chain that also can hold quarters or can be used as a golf ball marker.
Many thanks to Arden and Mercedes-Benz Canada for their hospitality in hosting this event.

2016 July Advanced Driving School Weekend @ Advanced Driving School & Mosport Weekend
Jul 23 – Jul 24 all-day
2016 July Advanced Driving School Weekend @ Advanced Driving School & Mosport Weekend | Bowmanville | Ontario | Canada

Update: 2016 Sports and Driving Summary 

 

The Advanced Driving School is being held in cooperation with the BMW Trillium Club at the Canadian Tire Mosport Park aka Mosport just north of Bowmanville Ontario. It is called “Advanced” as it is much more comprehensive than a typical one day “Safe Driving” event and is open to all from Novice to Expert and any brand of vehicles. Starting at 7:30am Saturday with registration and the track safety briefing and followed by a weekend filled with alternating class room and track sessions. You will be assigned to a group based on your formal experience and are matched with an experienced instructor for the whole weekend.

Registration is initiated by registering on the BMW website and emailing us such that we can attend to the process for the MBCA members. Please read the following links for more detailed information and for required forms:

Please sign up early as they sell out quickly once the registration site opens.  As MBCA member you can pre-register and we help to get you the spots you would like.  It is like having a “front row” VIP service without having to have the Mega-ultra-platinum-diamond Amex card 😉

2016 Sept Advanced Driving School & Mosport Weekend @ Advanced Driving School & Mosport Weekend | Bowmanville | Ontario | Canada

Advanced driving school at Mosport.  In coordination with BMW Trillium Section we will have a comprehensive schedule for a hole weekend of class room and track training.

Late summer and early fall  is beautiful in the country setting and even more exciting with engines reving and tires fighting for grip while getting very intimate with your highly engineered partner 🙂 The Mosport track is an outstanding facility for advanced driver training as it provides a series of fast and short corner, some long straights and significant elevation changes. This all adds up to an exhilarating weekend of learning and using the performance aspects of your MB.

Food:
-Das Kartoffelhaus (Those Potatoes On A Stick)
-Woodcutters (Sausage, Hotdog, Steak Sandwiches)
