Join us for a day of recreational lapping Castrol Raceway's new 1.3 km road course. Participants can expect up to 2.5 hours of track time.
Track Junkies is NOT a racing organization. This is NOT a racing event. The Track Junkies group is Alberta’s premium recreational lapping day experience, with a safe environment for people with high-value track cars to come out and play. Our events are non-competitive high-speed lapping events with controlled passing.
FORMAT: Rotating sessions will be 20 minutes in length. We offer four run groups with three distinct passing protocols, as follows:
· NOVICE (Green group): SORRY ... NO NOVICE DRIVERS for this event. This is also our instructor training day on the new track, and we will not have any instruction available for novice drivers.
· INTERMEDIATE (Yellow and Orange groups): For intermediate and advanced-intermediate drivers who are experienced and situationally aware, we offer point-by passing everywhere on the track. Drivers running in these groups must be comfortable allowing others to overtake on all straights and in most corners. With the ability to pass anywhere, these groups should be free-flowing without a lot of congestion or long trains. Yellow group will be the slower cars; orange group the faster cars. If participation is low, we'll combine into one intermediate group and split the additional track time among the remaining groups.
· OPEN PASSING (Red group): For the most advanced drivers, typically those with a current racing license and those with a long motorsport resume including many, many track days at a variety of venues, this group will be permitted to pass anywhere. This is NOT a race group; reckless and overly aggressive behavior will not be tolerated. Because of the greater expected speeds of very-experienced drivers and the higher risk associated with open passing, drivers running in this group will require an SA-2005 or newer motorsport-rated helmet, HANS device, and 5- or 6-point restraints attached to roll-over protection (structural roll bar or roll cage).
HAPPY HOUR: Last 1.5 hours of the afternoon will be a open to all drivers following INTERMEDIATE passing rules, where participants can enter and exit at will depending on their comfort with the traffic volume.
Gates open at 8:00 AM; mandatory drivers meeting at 8:30 AM, track goes hot at 9:00 AM. We will have full access to the skid pad as a paddock on Friday, but unfortunately no paddock on Saturday or Sunday.
RATES for this event:
Track Junkies annual members: $150
Non-members: $250 (non-members can register starting April 26)
