    The Northern Alberta Sports Car Club has published the following:

    Castrol Raceway -short track will be ready in late Spring, long track in mid summer.

    May 25/26 - school weekend. Short track
    June 6 & 20 - NASCC Track night Thursdays. Possibility of more Thursday nights once we know what our numbers are
    June 15-16 - Road Racing Events #1 and #2 (SHORT COURSE)
    July 13-14 - Road Racing Events #3 and #4 (SHORT COURSE)
    July 27-28 - Road Racing Event #5 and #6 (Possible LONG TRACK)
    August 24-25 Road Racing Events #7 and #8 (LONG COURSE)
    Sept 14-15 NASCC INTERNATIONAL GT CHAMPIONSHIP (LONG COURSE)

    "We have a schedule for Road Racing this summer at the freshly finished Castrol Raceway Road Course, in Nisku, by the Edmonton International Airport.
    This will be WCMA sanctioned, WCMA points races, organized by the NASCC and ARCA. We will run closed wheel, open wheel and vintage sessions, so long as there is enough registration in each category, and we will run lapping sessions.
    "

    That last section means cheap introductory track time!

    Do we sign up for track times or how does this work?

    Hi Rooney
    To my knowledge, Wild Rose has not yet established any HPDE for this year. So to take advantage of the opportunities above, you would have to contact the organizing bodies and follow their registration procedures. But, for example, NASCC (www.nascc.ab.ca) has not yet published their open lapping requirements. When lapping was done at RaceCity in Calgary, it was basically pay your money, show your car was in good shape, read the rules and go driving. I don't imagine it will be much different in Edmonton.
