TRACK JUNKIES

Track Junkies is Alberta’s premier open-marquee performance driving program. We offer owners and drivers of high-performance and sports cars the opportunity to drive their cars on a closed road course at speed. We provide a safe environment for participants to explore the capabilities and limits of their high-performance and sports cars while improving their driving skills. Although not a racing series, many participants use their track time with us to hone the skills they use to race or to test and tune their race cars.

* The above is a preliminary schedule … dates and times are subject to change.

All rates are per event. Although we may schedule a second driver’s meeting to accommodate people with less-flexible schedules, our rates are for the full event. This is because our costs are based on a full day … that includes track rental, insurance, ambulance, corner marshals, safety crew, etc.. None of our suppliers gives us a discount if a few participants arrive late, and so we simply cannot offer a reduced rate for late arrivals.

All rates are per driver, not per car. If two drivers wish to share one car, we put each driver in a separate run group (and each with a their own instructor if required) so each obtains ample seat time. We do not offer a reduced “sharing” rate. Conversely, a driver may drive multiple cars at an event providing each is suitably prepared and a self-tech inspection has been completed on each car in advance of the event.
