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. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be instituting a "lead-follow" format with each student following their instructor in their respective cars. One instructor per student. The classroom will intake only ten students so that we can keep every person appropriately distanced from one another while receiving classroom content.
TIME ATTACK: 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.

Vehicles must be inspected separately for each event --- photocopies of previous inspections are not acceptable.
