New Facility

The new facility, North Star Raceway @ Strathmore Motorsport Park is located in the Town limits of Strathmore, a 30 minute drive East of the City limits.

Construction began in July and was completed by Mid October. The track is between 8 and 9m wide and nearly 1225m long. Asphalt was City "B" mix. The new track has approximately 10m of elevation, rising and falling around a very exciting 14 turn technical layout. Excellent spectator sightlines will allow fans to see much more of the racing action. Future paved joiners between corners will allow multiple track configurations for added excitement. Our racing season will start in May 2015.

While most of the Track and Pre-Grid area have been built by North Star Contracting, there are many opportunities for volunteer work building the rest of the facility.

In 2015 we will:

• Bundle more tires for use as safety barriers

• Landscape the verges of the track to ensure smooth runoff areas

• Install timing equipment and score boards

• Prepare a base and install the grandstands

• Place tire safety walls

• Upgrade marshal posts for wind and weatherproofing

• Build a functional paddock area

All of which will give us a functioning race track, the next phases should include:

• Completing and paving runners in the paddock area

• Potentially building a dirt oval track or developing another area for another motorsport interest group

• Installing a new electronic gate pass system and other technological improvements

• Completing an offroad area adjacent to the track for Motard racing

Full track construction updates can be found in the New Track Forum
