FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 16
ROAD COURSE: MOTORCYCLE TRACK ATTACK. Gates Open at 8 AM. Imagine riding on an open track with none of the hazards and all of the safety of a closed course. An environment where you can really push your limits. Open to riders of every skill level: Novice, Intermediate and Racer. All registrations are $150. Limited to 60 participants per event.
Register on-line at www.castrolraceway.com or visit www.ontrackperformance.ca to register.

DRAG STRIP: JB’S POWER CENTRE STREET LEGAL. Castrol Raceway works very closely with the RCMP, Edmonton Police Department, and numerous local High Schools not only to promote the sport, but to encourage young street racers to take their passion for speed to a safe environment. Join us at the race track and race your vehicle during the weekly JB’s Power Centre Street Legal. As long as your vehicle is register-able and insurable… you’re good to go! Race All Night for only $40. Spectators: $10. Gates Open at 5 PM, Racing at 6:30 PM: Tech Closes most nights at 9 PM

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 17

ROAD COURSE: EDMONTON MOTORCYCLE ROADRACING ASSOCIATION (EMRA).

Volunteer

The best way to watch a race is to be in it on a bike, the 2nd best way to watch, is to volunteer & be involved in the race. So if you are not racing come-out & volunteer.

Road Racing Bikes Volunteer positions:
Race Director, Clerk of the Coarse, Referee, Starter, Chief Coarse Marshal, Corner Captain, Communicator, Yellow Flagger, Safety, Pri-grid, Pit lane marhsal, Rescue personnel: Ambulance crew, Fireman & Clean-up Crew, Track Announcer, Timing personnel, (Tech), Registration & Back Gate.

My favorite way to volunteer is as a track-side marshal/corner worker. Road course marshals are race personnel that surround the road course track at specified stations that communicate to riders with flags and each other on radios.

The EMRA (Edmonton Motorcycle Roadracers Association) Flagging bikes is a blast! Flagging procedures are a little different, but easy to learn. Castrol Raceway 730 am in front of the Argyll Motorsports tent close to the Pit Out station on the track.
