For motor enthusiasts, few sounds rival the sheer exuberance of an Italian super car spooling up its engine as it careens down the straightaway. At G1Tour, guests can achieve this thrill by slipping into the cockpit of their choice of three iconic super cars. Two Ferraris—a 360 Modena and an F430—twist their tires with 400 and 490 horsepower respectively, with the potential to reach the exact top speed of a cheetah who is driving a Ferrari. If that's not enough muscle, drivers can watch the blood drain from their knuckles as they attempt to contain the furious 552-horsepower Lamborghini Gallardo, who's high-rev plant propels passengers from 0 to 100 km/h in less than four seconds.
Cars can swirl around the 1.4-kilometre Sanair's wide tracks and soft turns or race headlong down the ultra-long straightaways of the 2-kilometre Sainte-Croix. Drivers who take on Mont-Tremblant negotiate hairpin turns and corkscrews as they work the pedals around the course's 4.2-kilometre track.

Driven by a desire to share their passion for luxury and classic cars, the crew at Dream Car Rentals founded an independent rental agency that places customers behind the wheel of Ferraris, Porsches, Audis, and Dodges. They deliver their fleet of five cars directly to clients for weekend rentals, special events, day-long joyrides, or unplanned visits from 1980s action-film stars. They also coordinate race days, when customers can pilot the four-wheeled steeds on the 3.4-kilometre Circuit iCar course or the 5-kilometre topographic track at Calabogie Motorsports Park, which features 20 sharp turns and an anti-minotaur security system.
The Beauchesne family, founders of Beau's All Natural Brewing Co., know that music and beer go well together. However, that doesn't simply mean that they enjoy sipping beer while listening to music. They've actually based their hands-on brewing process around the strong work ethic of DIY musicians. Several employees even play in the brewery's resident band, Audio.
The brewery's beer is as unique as its music-centered personality. "The beer, made with certified organic malt and local spring water, is just as refreshing as its quirky branding,? said Ottawa Magazine in its 101 Tastes To Try Before You Die list. Lug?Tread lagered ale, belgian dubbel, and vanilla porter are among its award-winning brews. Ever involved with the community, Beau's All Natural Brewing Co. frequently organizes dinners, music nights, and other events at local spots.
