High-Speed Road Course at Castrol Raceway

There is no better place to have fun and test your skills than on the Road Course at Castrol Raceway. Our 2.7 km, 12 meters wide, 14-turn clockwise circuit is the most recently developed and highly anticipated venue at Canada’s premier motorsports park. The full circuit can be run in one of three configurations: 1.1 kms (Includes high-bank Speedway turn), 1.5 kms, and 2.7 kms. The 1000’ straight-away is anticipated to allow the fastest vehicles to approach 300 kms/hour. The track is adjacent to an excellent spectator mound and grandstands. This option has been constructed with the west course separator so we can run two tracks simultaneously. The highly technical track is ideal for both novice and veteran closed-course enthusiasts.

In partnership with EMRA, we are thrilled to host Track Attack motorcycle track days. If you have a great time riding your bike on the street, get ready to improve your skills on an open track with none of the hazards of street riding and all of the safety of a closed course. Bring your skills to the next level; Our Expert Instructors will help develop your riding skills, from slow speed tight patterns, to high speed braking, obstacle avoidance and everything in between.

Program dates are open to Licensed Riders of every skill level. Each day will group riders into four groups: Novice, Intermediate, Advance, and Expert (Race license required). Intimate Classroom & Riding Sessions for each Level.

Some basic bike preparation is necessary to participate in a Track Attack event. Many people ride their bike to the track and prep their bike before the session starts, and this is adequate as long as new riders are ready to go before the track walk.

Basic Bike Prep

Ensure the bike is in good working order (throttle should move freely, brake pads must have sufficient material, and brake fluid should be bled if fluid is old)

  • Tires are in good shape and are clear of cracks and have adequate tread remaining
  • No leaks; for example, engine fluids are contained, fork seals are good, and all hoses are in good shape.
  • Bodywork and other items are securely fastened to the motorcycle
  • No bike will be allowed on the track if the organizers deem the bike to be unsafe
Required Riding Gear
  • 1- or 2-piece leather or textile suit, if 2-piece it must zip together around the waist
  • Riding boots at least ankle high
  • Gauntlet-style gloves (covering the wrist)
  • Helmet rated for motorcycle track use (i.e. Snell M2010, ECE 22.05)
