I thought I was a motorsport die-hard, I then I interviewed Mike Elhard.

Mike Elhard Vice-president Northern Alberta Sports Car Club (NASCC) & Edmonton Rally Club (ERC), Mike started motorsport in 2001 when he was tired of getting hurt on mountain bike. Claimer, Rally & Road racing Mike has done lots of racing and has traveled extensively with lemons & Chumpcar.

Mike says “If you are in the Edmonton area and want more information go to a meeting and you will find a lot of people that would be a great help. http://nascc.ab.ca/

If you are not from the area and have some questions go to the club contact page fill out the form and someone will get back to you.


Expect to have good fields of cars to have great wheel to wheel racing.

I asked him what is good about Ice racing and he said “It makes winter go by quick when you live in this climate you might as well race”

Also in the Edmonton area the Edmonton Rally Club hosts rally cross events on the same track that are worth checking out.

And, if you are not Ice racing this year come out & volunteer
