StratoCross #3 Final Competition!

Stratotech Park

About this event

Autocross is back in Edmonton with StratoCross Time Trials held at Stratotech Raceway just 15 minutes north of Edmonton!

​What is an Autocross? An Autocross is a race against the clock (as opposed to wheel-to-wheel) around a unique course defined by cones or pylons. It is one of the safest and lowest cost motorsports you can get into. Click Here to find out more!

All are welcome to participate at this event, from the complete novice with their daily driver to the seasoned pro with a fully built race car!

Fee: $85 per driver 

*This event is limited to the first 28 to register.  Cancellations are fully refundable up to 24 hours before the event start.
