3.5 seconds. That's all it takes the Porsche GT3 to go from a standstill to 100 kph. At that point, though, the car is nowhere near its full potential. 200 kph and 300 kph pass by in a blur of asphalt, until the engine peaks at 315 kph. It's a feat that makes the term supercar seem like no exaggeration.
That Porsche is just one of seven high-speed luxury vehicles in G1Tour's garages. Their other automotive stars boast names like Ferrari, Audi, and Lamborghini, all of which accelerate to speeds worthy of Canada's best race tracks?which is exactly where G1Tour operates. The company hands over the keys and sends customers zipping around closed tracks throughout Quebec and Ontario, including Calabogie Motorsports Park and Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. (All that's required is a valid driver's license and a brief training session.) G1Tour also rents its fleet for nights out on the town or afternoons of impressing the city's drive-through workers.
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.

For Petra Cliffs owners Steve and Andrea Charest,
purchasing the climbing and bouldering school wasn't just a good business opportunity, but a way to add value to the local climbing community. Avid climbers themselves, they helped the facility develop into a place where beginners feel comfortable grabbing their first grips, but also one where advanced climbers and boulderers still feel challenged. Within the 8,500-square-foot space, visitors can climb,
take lessons, tackle a high-ropes course, or even work out on strength-training equipment. Of course, the staff puts safety and knowledge above all else, and they teach and keep up with professional development courses so they don't miss learning about new protocols or new rock formations that may have evolved in the last five years.
