About this event

The Track Junkies group is Alberta’s premium recreational lapping day experience, with a safe and welcoming environment for people with high-value street and track cars to come out and play.  Our events offer both competitive and noncompetitive high-speed lapping with coordinated (point-by) passing.

FORMAT:  We use a rotating run group format. These run groups allow drivers with similar skill levels, and cars with similar expected speeds, to run together with minimal congestion. Rotating sessions will be 20 minutes in length. Participants should expect 2+ hours of scheduled track time at this event.

INSTRUCTION is available for novice drivers.

NEW FOR 2015: We are offering one competitive Time Attack run group at each event, with AMB timing transponders available for rent. Participants electing to run in a timed run group can accumulate points throughout the season and qualify for prizes and trophies at the end of the season.

SCHEDULE: This is a DAYTIME event.  Gates to the paddock open at 7:30 AM; mandatory drivers meeting at 8:30 AM; track hot from 9:00 AM until 5:00 PM. Sandwiches provided by  at the noon break. We will have full access to the skid pad as a paddock.

RATES for this event:

  • Fee per driver:  $295
  • Instruction for novice drivers:  add $100
  • AMB transponder rental: add $25
        (required for timed competitive lapping)
  • 5% GST is included in the above prices

- "Inspected in advance" means downloading the Track Junkies self-tech inspection form found at www.trackjunkies.ca/self-tech.pdf prior to the event and verifying the condition of each item on the form. Vehicles must be inspected separately for each event --- photocopies of previous inspections are not acceptable. The term "self-tech" means you may perform the inspection yourself if you have the required knowledge and tools. If you do not have the technical knowledge or tools required, or are not willing to take the time to properly inspect each item, please have the vehicle inspected by a licensed Automotive Service Technician with knowledge of the rigors expected in road course driving.

HELMET:  Snell-approved M-2005 (motorcycle) or SA-2005 (motorsport) or newer helmets are required for all particpants. ALL Snell-approved helmets bear a Snell rating sticker, typically found by lifting up the helmet liner (you should not need to remove any glued portions of the liner to view the sticker).  Open-face helmets are preferred in vehicles with air bags; closed-face helmets are preferred in vehicles without air bags.
