StratoCross Challenge Day

Stratotech Park

About this event

StratoCross Challenge Day is a special one day Autocross competition that has drivers completing a challenging course in both forward & reverse directions. Best times are combined & class winners are awarded trophies, with 1st place positions winning a free pass to The StratoCup on September 14th!

Driver's get 2 low speed practice runs followed by 4 competition runs at each course direction throughout the day. 

​What is an Autocross? An Autocross is a race against the clock (as opposed to wheel-to-wheel) around a unique course defined by 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. No racing experience or special equipment, other than a helmet, is required.

This competition is held at Stratotech Raceway, just 15 minutes north of Edmonton, AB.
