The Alberta Race Car Association (ARCA) is a motorsport club.
ARCA organized road race events primarily at the now closed Race City Motorsport Park in Calgary, Alberta. We are currently organizing race events at the new track at Carstairs, Alberta – Rocky Mountain Motorsports.
We are committed to having safe, competitive and fair road racing events that ensures great racing for our competitors, their crew and family members.
We teach the basics of high performance / competition driving to interested individuals.
ARCA is always on the lookout for new people to get involved in our sport. We encourage them to get come out and join us in our fun.
We teach the basics of flagging, communications, emergency response, timing and scoring and other positions to track workers.
Even though we have no track in Southern Alberta, we are actively involved with motorsports events in Gimli Manitoba, organized by the Winnipeg Sports Car Club (WSCC) and Northern Alberta, organized by the Northern Alberta Sports Car Club (NASCC).
ARCA has multi classes in 4 race Groups: Closed Wheel CW, Open Wheel OP, Spec Miata SM & Vintage VIN.
Get involved in motorsports: volunteer!
Race Volunteers make events it takes a lot of people to make an event work. Road Racing Cars Volunteer Positions: Clerk of the Coarse, Steward, Starter, Chief Coarse Marshal, Corner Captain, Communicator, Yellow Flagger, Blue flagger, Safety, Pri-grid, Pit in & Pit out, Rescue personnel: Ambulance crew, Fireman & Clean-up Crew Tow Truck driver, Pace Car Driver, Timing personnel, Srutineer (Tech), Registration.
One of the coolest ways 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 drivers with flags and each other on radios. These are a committed group of volunteers that with training and experience, can become qualified to work the big professional races like Indycar & Formula 1. I always loved Blue Flagging, to be good you need to keep the race positions in your head.
