Rocky Mountain Motorsports application is scheduled to be reviewed on Friday, August 12 by members of Mountain View County council. The project is an impressive Road Course with a 3.3 Mile F2 Track close to Carstairs in the Mountain View County Wessex Area. The use of the track would be a for Performance Driving Schools, Police Training Academy & track rentals that could be used for track days & racing.
Rocky Mountain Motorsports previously known as Rockyview Motorsports also had a proposed Road Course next to Airdrie. The MD of Rocky View Council refused the Rockyview Motorsports Park Application January 27, 2015.
Since the closure of Race City Motorsport Park there has been an increase in illegal street racing. Race City Motorsport Park had a ½ mile high-banked oval, ¼ mile drag strip & 2 mile Road Course, with a Kart track in the south west corner of the property. This closure is a great loss to the motorsport community & legal racers. For people wanting to race legally they must travel to: Drumheller, Medicine Hat, Nisku, Rimby & Wetaskiwin.
The only Motorsport Facility to be built since Race City’s closure is the North Star Raceway in Strathmore. North Star Raceway is an impressive Kart track used the Calgary Kart Racing Club (CKRC) & Alberta Mini RoadRacing Association (AMRA).
Another Motorsport Facility in the works is Badlands Motorsport Resort in Drumheller that hopefully will break ground in 2017.
The Rocky Mountain Motorsports is asking motorsports enthusiasts to express respect to the neighbours. Lets all hope this is possible, and we can get new Motorsport Facility in the general Calgary area.
