As the 2019 season comes to a close we would like to take this opportunity to reflect on what was accomplished this season, and to talk about the exciting new developments at Area 27.
First off, we have been extremely pleased to see members enjoying the Clubhouse. We would especially like to thank everyone involved during the build. It was through their extraordinary efforts that allowed it to be completed before mid-season. It is always great to see members enjoying lunch together as they discuss their last session on the track. With the addition of the Clubhouse, the track truly feels like a home for the Motorsports enthusiast.
Moving forward we are expecting the furniture package for the Clubhouse to arrive any day now. These new additions will make the clubhouse feel even more welcoming and special.
It has also been great to see members out enjoying the new Karting facility: Kartplex. We have had great feedback on the track, and it’s intricate challenges. Craig and his team are doing an excellent job of providing first class rental karts, along with full service race kart purchases and preparation. If you are interested in hosting your own private event at the kart track please feel free to contact Rose at Kartplex so she can help with the arrangements.
During this off season we will be expanding, and adding, to the gravel traps around the circuit, as well as placing additional tires, and adding conveyor belt to the tires. More than a few drivers have happily tested the gravel traps this year, which proved effective at slowing their vehicles to prevent impact with the tire barriers. These are all part of our ongoing safety and landscaping improvements that we do every off season. We are happy to have finalized a deal to have fuel provided at the track and expect construction of the 94 octane Petro Canada station to happen this off season.
- Beginning of construction of curbing at exit of turn 5
