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.  Track Junkies is NOT a racing organization.  This is NOT a racing event.  Our events are non-competitive high-speed lapping events with coordinated passing.

FORMAT:  We will be using our three run group format (see below) that provides participants 2+ hours of scheduled track time. Rotating sessions will be 20 minutes in length.  We offer three run groups with three distinct passing protocols, as follows:  

·  NOVICE (Green group):  For those with limited (or no) previous track driving experience, this group has passing coordinated with a point-by on the longer straights only.  Most instructing will be done in this group. This is the group with the least aggressive drivers ... great if you are venturing onto a road course for the first time. Inexperienced drivers, including those with high-horsepower cars, should register in this group (we can move you up later in the day).

·  INTERMEDIATE  (Yellow group):  For intermediate drivers who have a moderate level of experience with road course driving and are situationally aware, this group has passing coordinated with a point-by everywhere on the track at the discretion of both drivers.  Drivers running in this group should be comfortable allowing others to overtake on all straights and in most corners.  With the ability to pass anywhere, this group will have a quicker pace.  We offer limited instruction in this group, solely at the discretion of Track Junkies.

·  ADVANCED (Red group):  This group is 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 has passing coordinated with a point-by everywhere on the track, with drivers expected to give a point-by everywhere on track and immediately when a faster car/driver approaches.  An extremely high level of courtesy is expected in this group, and all drivers must be very comfortable running with other drivers in close proximity.  Nevertheless, this is NOT a race group; reckless and overly aggressive behavior will not be tolerated. Because of the greater expected cornering speeds of very-experienced drivers, this group is not suitable for drivers who have not been on this track before.

DISCOVERY LAPS:  Immediately following the drivers' meeting, the first session of the day will be open to all drivers so they may re-familiarize themselves with the track layout; corner entry, apex and exit locations; and warm their tires and their vehicles.  Drivers will run under full-course standing yellow flag (meaning no passing) and with a speed limit of 40 MPH or 70 KPH.  Helmets and seat belts are required at all times on track. 

HAPPY HOUR:  Last hour (or so) of the event will be open to all drivers following INTERMEDIATE (yellow group) passing rules.  Drivers can enter and exit track at will, depending on their comfort level with current traffic volume. 

SCHEDULE: This is a EVENING event.  Gates open at 3:00 PM; mandatory drivers meeting at 3:30 PM (additional meeting at 5:40 PM for late arrivals); track hot from 4:00 PM until 9:00 PM.  Full session schedule can be downloaded here.  We will have full access to the skid pad as a paddock.

ADDED BONUS for this event only: Our event falls on the same date as The Race of Champions: Legends of NASCAR on the dirt oval at Castrol Raceway.  The Race of Champions event features NASCAR legends, defending Champ Ken Schrader, Michael Waltrip and Kenny Wallace racing the NPP Late Models against our hometown heroes on the dirt oval. Action on the oval goes from approx. 7:00 - 10:00 PM. More details on the Castrol website here.


Here's the bonus ... Castrol Raceway has offered to accept your Track Junkies July 30th driver wristband as a general admission ticket for the Race of Champions evening. That means you can walk over to the oval between your road course sessions, or head over when your Track Junkies evening is done. General admission entry to The Race of Champions: Legends of NASCAR is a $40 additional value courtesy of Castrol Raceway for Track Junkies participants only. 

RATES for this event:

  • Fee per driver:  $195
  • Instruction for novice drivers:  add $100
  • 5% GST is included in the above prices
  • Dinner meal provided by Subway.
