Track Details

We are running on a Clay & Dirt mix surface that is rolled smooth at the beginning of the season. It is watered damp to help keep the surface together, reduce tire wear and increase traction.

Suggested tires include Flip Outs, Hole Shots, Square fuzzies, Impacts, DD’s, 3d’s etc. Small pin tires work well. Barcodes only work when the track is really damp (After a day of rain).

When we are not racing we cover the track with a 100×50′ tarp to keep the surface damp and prepped. Typically we run as long as its not raining during the event time.

LOCATION

1120 Ted Kelly Lane Ottawa, ON

You can park on the road, but please do not block the neighbour’s laneways.
Please note, the driveway is for wheelchair and family members only.

The pit area behind drivers stand is shaded by the forest. It’s first come, first served, to the dozen or so pit spots already setup on the NEW Pit floor/deck.

Accessibility

We have an elevator onsite for wheelchair access to second level which fits 5-6 wheelchairs / chairs for driving and ramp access to the pits.
